Phial of Galadriel
£55.00 plus £8.00 delivery
A parting gift to Frodo Baggins by Galadriel when the Fellowship of the Ring left Lórien.
It was also known as the Star-glass, because it held a little fragment from the light of the Star of Eärendil, which was one of the Silmarils, contained within the waters of Galadriel’s Mirror. It is thus a reflection of a reflection of the light of the Two Trees of Valinor. While travelling to Mordor via Cirith Ungol, both Frodo and Samwise Gamgee used the light of the Phial to fend off attacks from the monstrous spider Shelob in Torech Ungol. Sam also used it to overcome the will of the Two Watchers at the Tower of Cirith Ungol. Once they reached Mount Doom, the light from the glass faded because they were in the heart of Sauron’s domain where its power could not reach.
