Arkenstone

Explanation

The Arkenstone of Thrᅢᄀin was a wondrous large white gem sought by Thorin Oakenshield in J. R. R. Tolkien's The Hobbit. It was discovered beneath Erebor by Thorin's ancestor Thrᅢᄀin and shaped by the Dwarves. The Arkenstone became the family heirloom of Durin's folk, but was lost when the dragon Smaug captured the mountain from the Dwarves. The Arkenstone shone of its own inner light, but having been cut and fashioned by the Dwarves, it also reflected and multiplied any light glancing upon its surface with marvellous beauty. The Arkenstone resembles the Silmarils in some respects, though it is not one.
