A brilliant blue shines beneath the ocean's waves, calling those on the water like a siren's song. Those who see the shimmering blue are often held in awe, seeing a true artifact of Caspian's
grace upon the water, a marker of whose domain this truly is. Only in the farthest places of the ocean can one find these glittering stones, so far away that some may think they will fall from the world or be sucked into the Abyss Ocean
far below. To those that never leave the land, these beautiful stones are nothing more than a myth, but to those that have reached the Temple of the Sea
, these stones are a stunning reality, decorating a divine place.
In the water-logged kingdoms of the world, these brilliant stones are little more precious than Iron
. Above the water is where these stones gain their true worth, their colors only showing truly in the dry sunlight. To those that follow the teachings of Caspian
, even the smallest bit of this stone is believed to have divine grace, to have been blessed by the God of the Sea himself. To others, these are precious gemstones that shine with more depth and color than Opals
, making them perfect for decorative pieces and showing one's wealth.
Prismarine is one of the world's rarest stones, being found only in the depths of the ocean, far away from land and civilization. For those that are water dwellers, these stones are seen as Caspian's
divine touch, something that they will protect at all costs. In more recent years, Prismarine has been found as decorations on the surface as the once closed-off Obsidea
came to a trade deal with Fire & Gold, Inc.
, allowing the stones to be sold to land dwellers, but at a steep price.
Prismarine is considered to be as old as the world, placed into the oceans when Caspian
filled the waters with life. For those that lived beneath the waves, the shining blue stone was common, a commodity to be used for trade based upon the color and size of the stone. The Obsidea
specifically used Prismarine as a simple currency, items worth a certain weight of the precious rock.
A chance encounter would change how the world saw Prismarine. Most believed the shimmering blue rock to be nothing more than the stories of sailors who had strayed too far. if one saw these stones, it was attributed to illness, too much time on the sea without the comforts of land. When a tradesman first presented the actual stone to the world, everyone believed him to be a liar, but soon the truth would be realized.
Within the last decade, Prismarine has become a hot commodity on the surface, often being sold for prices that were once only for Mithril
and other extremely precious metals. Fire & Gold, Inc.
struck a very lucrative deal with the Obsidea
that traded Prismarine for a large number of goods that could not be found beneath the sea. Currently, the Obsidea
are the only supplier of the stone and it can only be purchased directly from Fire & Gold, Inc.
