Binghamite.

Silkstone was a fibrous variety of quartz similar to tiger eye.[3][4]

DescriptionEdit

This ornamental stone was found in many colors, yellow being the most common, and was cut cabochon, tumbled, or used for engravings[3] such as seals for merchants and nobles.[4] It exhibited faint highlights when light hit at certain angles.[3][4] A typical stone had a base value of 10 gp.[1][2]

PowersEdit

Like tiger eye, silkstone was worn as a protection from spirits, though this was more old wives' tale than fact.[3][4] However, shadows were known to hesitate briefly when encountering someone wearing a silkstone, perhaps giving them time to flee. This property also made powdered silkstone a viable substitute component when casting spells related to life-energy drain and the restoration of those effects. It was also used in the creation of magical inks needed to make scrolls of those spells.[4]
