“Beware those gems that adventurers try to sell you. Before you know, they turn to fools’ gems”
Few things shine as bright as the jewels of Hell
A rare and diseased jewel, a canker fallen from the heavens
A glowing green stone flowing with the elemental power of evil
Thie pearly material is also known by the sinister name of Demon’s Tooth.
While bronze is cheaper, and steel is stronger, few materials are as desireable for weapons than proper Xanthanite.
A jewel to match my heart.
The Lady Givone
