Wovenstone, also referred to as Alexandrite or Nickal, is a unique rock found sparsely in Quelmar, but quite commonly in other planes of existence. Wovenstone is often found in areas of high fae concentration, or sites that were historically home to the fae races.
Magical Properties Edit
Wovenstone is rock that is native to the feywild, where magics run wild and inhabit everything. When carved, the shape of the stone informs what sort of magical properties it has. Different spells correspond to different carvings and shapes. Similar to runes, it is a language of shapes and designs. However, unlike runes, the magic does not come from the shape, but rather the shape informs the magic of the stone material itself. Because of this, anyone with a chisel is able to unlock the natural magic of wovenstone, given enough time.
Wovenstone was the original Quelmar material for carving runes. As wovenstone became scarce, ancient magicians needed to learn how to make runes out of ordinary rocks.
