Silvarils (Elf-Stones)

The Silvarils; commonly known as the "Elf-Stones," were nine magical artifacts, which were created long ago by the Council of Sorcerë.

Nine stones were created; three each of red, blue, and green. In recognition of their courage at the Battle of Orgorod, one orb of each color was given to the three elvish realms of Wyntharë, Thekarë, and Melinarë.

Fate of the nine Elf-Stones

The three stones given to the Grey-elves are believed to have been taken off the continent when King Ajathar Alessarë sailed to Eryn Norvë.

The three stones given to the Wood-Elves were lost when the city of Therakan fell to the armies of Alokkair.

Today, only the three stones of the High-Elves remain, safely hidden within their city of Astrakan.
