There are four types of materials involved in Blacksmithing: Ores, Ingots, Tempers, and Gems.
Ores are the raw materials that can be found in the world in mineral deposits. By themselves they cannot be used, but they may be refined into Ingots at any armor crafting station.
Ingots are used to make Heavy Armor as well as all bladed or blunt melee weapons.
Tempers can be used to improve existing armor or weapons.
Gems are used to craft weapons and armor with traits.
