The Arkenstone was treasured by the Dwarven Longbeards clan of the Lonely Mountain. Described by Thorin Oakenshield as "a globe with a thousand facets; it shone like silver in the firelight, like water in the sun, like snow under the stars, like rain upon the Moon!" When Bilbo Baggins discovered the Arkenstone on the top of Smaug's treasure horde, "it was tinged with a flickering sparkle of many colours at the surface." The stone filled his tiny Hobbit hand, yet he was able to secret the Arkenstone away in his deepest pockets."
Details: The Arkenstone replica is made of fine K9 Crystal treated with an Aurora Borealis plating which gives the the orb a magical glow. The stone exhibits a variety of colors depending on what type light its under. The Arkenstone replica comes nestled on a black velvet pillow inside a wooden Dwarven treasure chest. The name plate on top of the chest is stamped with Dwarvish runes which read "Arkenstone". The runes are the same as those found on Thorin's Map.
The Arkenstone measures 59 mm in diameter - big enough to fill a Hobbit hand, but small enough to hide in a deep pocket. The Arkenstone replica and Dwarven treasure box weigh 18 oz.
Packaging: The Arkenstone replica includes the wooden treasure chest with Dwarvish runes and a Card of Authenticity.

This piece is beautiful. I wasn’t expecting it to be as large as it is. The quality of the crystal is apparent and the weight of it in hand makes it feel like a real treasure. I was impressed by the craftwork on the box itself as well. Altogether lovely!
All I can say is WOW! The quality of the box and stone itself is excellent, such an awesome show piece!
