Aletheia Crystal
Type: Holder
Purpose: Storage and Transportation of Memories
Effects: Projects memories onto surrounding surfaces

An Aletheia Crystal is a crystal used to hold memories.

Description

Aletheia crystals are many-faceted crystals the size of a child's hand. They have a smooth, stone-like surface.

Function

Aletheia crystals are used to capture and transport memories.[1]

When the crystal is dormant, the memories contained within it flash across its surface. Once activated through a Latin incantation the crystal begins to glow until it releases a focused beam of light, which acts as a projector and casts moving images across a nearby wall.

History

In the past, around the 1800s, aletheia crystals were used by the Clave to capture and hold memories as evidence from trials, however they were eventually phased out.

In September 2012 an aletheia crystal was discovered at Blackthorn Hall by Ty and Livvy Blackthorn and Kit Herondale. The crystal contained the memories of Annabel Blackthorn from her trial in the early 19th century.[1]

Appearances

Trivia

  • Aletheia crystals appear to darken the room they are in when activated, as the one found in Blackthorn Hall extinguished surrounding candles when activated by the warlock Shade.
  • Aletheia crystals are named after the Greek goddess of truth, Aletheia.
