Elemental vortices were permanent pathways that existed between the four elemental planes or an elemental plane and the Prime Material Plane.
Genies used these passageways to travel between the courts of other genies located on the elemental planes.
Elemental vortices did not exist between directly opposing elemental planes. For instance, there was no elemental vortex between the Elemental Plane of Fire and the Elemental Plane of Water.
