A word for materials everything is made of

If I’m talking about stuff things are made of (e.g. the brick is made of wood) or about materials as such not concrete objects (e.g. butter as material not as a pack of butter or the matter “inside” stones) is “substance” the most general term? I mean both artificial and natural objects.


Maybe you are looking for matter? It’s pretty general.


  1. a : the substance of which a physical object is composed
