Interesting lexical parallels between Armenian and Uralic languages from Jahukyan's book.
Those words are not explained via Iranian or any other intermediation.
The proto Uralic *waski ( a metallic term ) has been linked with the Tocharian word for gold *wi̯äsā.
Compare the Armenian oski (gold ոսկի).
P'or (փոր) is another interesting term. Widespread in Armenian toponyms, especially in the North. Meaning valley, but also hole, to dig and abdomen.
Some of those words do have IE etymology but some do not have.
Armenian կեչի (kečʿi, “birch”) compared with proto Finnic *kaska. See the link in the comments.
