List of Shards
|Location:||Sanctum of Scales|
a cloudy alexandrite shard
|Description: Cloudy grey at times and watery green at others, the shard's unfinished nature little diminishes its peculiar color-shifting nature.|
a shimmertine shard
|Description: The curving shimmertine fragment is rough in most places, but iridescent hues dance along the smooth surfaces where the stone fractured along its proper cleavage. From one direction, the semi-translucent stone appears pure white, but, from another, many long, thin stripes in various rainbow hues draw a parallel course through the heart of the stone.|
