The Demon Haunted World
Heart of Huxley
A legendary gemstone said to be the remains of Aldis Huxley. According to legend it is a pink-red color and roughly the size of a human being. It appears suspended in midair above the altar in the center of the great pyramid temple. Although never shaped by human hand it is perfectly cut and seems to reflect different aspects of a person’s soul in each facet. The gem is told to have great powers of healing and knowledge. Sick beings brought close to it are said to heal any ailment in minutes. It is said to have regenerated limbs, cured blindnesss and made barren women fertile. Gazing into the gem brings vast knowledge but is dangerous as well. One must be able to accept each facet of their being in order to gain anything from the Heart. Every good and wholesome part of the person is revealed along with every dark thought and misdeed. If unprepared the strain can drive a man insane or kill them outright.
Only a select few in the history of Eberron have seen it and none living today, save The Enlightened One, have glimpsed it. Its location and true power are a closely guarded secret of The Enlightened One.
