Meneltir

An unusual seeing stone that, unlike the palantirs, gazes beyond the world to Ekkaia, the Void. Although it cannot be used for communication, the infinite cosmos, including other celestial bodies and all of Elbereth's stars. Gazing into it for too long can poison the mind with feelings of staggering irrelevance and ennui. Many iron-willed scholars have tried, and most have stumbled away, crippled by the sudden understanding of their own insignificance.

The Meneltir is kept at Dol Guldur, on the highest floor of a highly-guarded tower. It is what drove the sorcerer Najor Iron-hand into ambitious madness, and also played a part in the breaking of Beacher Bailey.
