Crystal balls were the most common of magical scrying devices.[1]


These orbs of crystal weighed about seven pounds (3.2 kg).[1] They were sometimes made of very large and smooth pearls.[4]


The balls could be purchased or made with a variety of powers. At its simplest, a crystal ball allowed one to gaze into its surface and view another location as by the spell scrying. Other powers could be added, such as the ability of detecting the thoughts of a target at the observed location.[1]

A telthukiilir was an extremely potent elven version of a crystal ball that could track an individual's whereabouts.[5]
