Silvarils (Elf-Stones)

The Silvarils; commonly known as the "Elf-Stones," were nine magical artifacts created long ago by the Council of Sorcerë and given to the elves in return for their aid at the Battle of Orgorod. There were three stones each of red, blue, and green.

Nine stones were created, three each of red, blue, and green. One of each color was given to the three elvish realms of Wyntharë, Thekarë, and Melinarë.


The three stones of the western realm are believed to have been taken off the continent when Ajathar sailed off Corwyn to Eryn Norvë. The three stones in the northern Elf-realm in the Silvarwood are believed to have been lost when the city of Therakan fell to dark forces in the Fourth Age. Only the three stones of Melinarë remain; hidden deep within the city of Astrakan.
