Patina (pat'ne) n. [Fr. It., orig., tarnish] 1. a fine crust of film on bronze or copper usually green or greenish-blue, formed by natural oxidation and often valued as being ornamental. - New World Dictionary of the American Language 2nd ed.

no matter how small we think it may be.

It is what legends are made of.
