Location: The Rift

a faceted midnight blue riftstone

Description:   The riftstone is a brilliant shade of indigo blue, with reflective facets that seem to draw the ambient light into the stone's swirling heart. Within the depths of that tiny microcosm, a ring of fog drifts slowly around a pinpoint of flickering light that modulates in intermittent bursts.

Special Property = When raised, it will provide some mana to the bearer before becoming dormant. May be an orb gem, be purified by a bard, and used for wizard charging, but cannot become a chrism.

Average value: 1250
Location: The Rift

a pale violet riftstone

Description:   The violet riftstone is a pleasing shade of lilac striated with a delicate pattern of darker, violet veins. Although its uneven facets are mostly opaque, they occasionally emit a subtle sparkle, as though a small burst of energy has escaped from the hidden depths of the stone's heart.

Average value: 60
Location: The Rift

a piece of black riftstone

Description:   The hunk of black rock is unevenly formed, its pocked surface opaque and non-reflective. A few veins of color send violet tendrils across the unremarkable face of the stone in a pattern resembling a pale bolt of lightning.
