Casting Replicate on a simple inanimate object (meaning nothing plot relevant) will create a perfect copy of said object. In a way it is the object or inanimate equivalent to Clone. This is useful in many ways; for example, to create powder kegs from one single keg in the mage's possession, or to create multiple Torches. However, the spell can't copy anything magical or too valuable, nor can it copy money (like the False Coin spell).
