Unfortunately, its analogue is more Mithril shirt than Arkenstone and, as such, I can't imagine any serious renown stretching south of Dorwinion or east of the Iron Hills but this is probably, ultimately, unjust -- New Holland, much like the dwarf-smiths of Aglarond, are clearly doing as good of a job as anyone.
