Full Item Description
This diamond looks very much the same as any, and every other diamond that you see, with perfectly cut edges and an incredibly smooth unmarked surface, just another one of your ordinary diamonds...

The diamond was created by Hikuki Mariana, one of calcorns many mages, all of them constantly trying out new spells that they have created with the sole purpose of creating magical items, most of which are only temporary items sold to adventures going further into the wastelands to brave the depths of the calcorn pitts, a puzzling maze created by a madman, turned into a tournament for either the very brave or the very foolish, more on the topic of the pitts will be appearing just as soon as karim returns...

Its original intent was to be turned into a light source, to be hung on a pendant so the wearer could see were they were going.

However, the spell she had prepared for its making wasn't right, and when it didn't begin to give off light she was about to hurl it into the fire in anger and frustration. It was at this point that she noticed that the item had become ever so slightly colder than it was before, so she decided to utter the words of the spell to see what would happen, there was instant silence for a moment and she began to feel warmer.

She took the stone home with her, not telling anyone a thing about it or its properties, now she decided that she was finally ready to journey to the calcorn pitts.

It was on her way there that she accidently stumbled upon a bandit camp, and naturally, they; seeing a mage began to feel threatened and attacked and killed her, in fear of their safety, though not before she took great many with her due to her skill.

After the fight when the loot was being shared, their leader noticed the diamond around the womens neck, and since then he claimed it for his own.

Many years have passed now, and the bandit chief is dead, the pendant hasn't been seen in years, many believe it to be lost, although there are those who still search for it, hoing to find the glorious item.
