Thread: The Arkenstone and other designs for the Hobbit
I have been told that the arkenstone is actually a faceted stone but with artistic licence, every time i've read it I always imagine it the same way.
Basically, I imagine the arkenstone as if it were an albino palantir. Another way I usually describe it is by calling it an opal crossed with a palantir. Do you get what I mean? Unfortunately I can't draw, but i'm seeing someone that can, so I'll ask them to draw what I mean. [/color:3usbkcj6]
Not much help that is it, but maybe you could expand on what you've said a bit and maybe you could post the picture?
Btw theres a New Memebers thread if you wanted to introduce yourself there .

I cant picture a shape though, I just get a glow. It is supposed to be cut rather than rough though, so what cut would they use? I figure something symetrical.
I imagined the Arkenstone as sort of a really big diamond with lots of edges that sparkled and almost glowed when light hit it and in sort of an ovaloid shape.

Don't think that is the true Arkenstone but there was another picture next to the display, I can only describe it here as a white translucent orb, encapsulated inside 2 bands of gold that meet at the top, crowned with a small dome. I leave my best impression below (only quick but oh well);
dont forget this is all around a centre of white translucentness about the size of 2 fists together
Not the best i know but its quick.
thats the best description can come up with for what they look like
maybe The Arkenstone would be something like that?
guess we have to wai and see like everything else ugh lol
well none the less as I mentioned Rainbow moonstone for a comparison
I was able to get two pics of one of my pendants one using a flash and the other without
so here you go granted my digi camera is bad for close ups(even with the macro feature) but here you go
hope the links work
