Stone shape was a transmutation spell or alteration spell that reshaped stone objects.[4][5][7][8][11]


Fine detail was not possible, but natural or worked stone could be manipulated by means of this spell to form most any shape the caster desired—an arch, a statue, a door, or a wall with a hole in it, for example. If small moving parts were required, there was a chance the mechanism just wouldn't function.[4][5][7][8][11]


Verbal and somatic components were necessary, plus arcane casters required a lump of clay that had to be crudely molded into the desired shape and then brought into contact with the stone to be reshaped.[4][5][7][8] Some druids also required mistletoe.[11]


The spell was attributed to Netherese arcanist Proctiv in -2110 DR and was originally called Proctiv's shape stone.[1]
