Normal: Can be used as a power component in spells, providing a +2 CRIT and +2 Fumble bonuses or less to spells.
*** Rare use require Find True Essence to activate. ***
Rare: Can absorb any spell, prayer or ritual up to OP 4 that includes you in its effect, crumbling into dust after the absorption. If the spell is an area effect one, it only negates the spell for you. Spells not immediately centered on you are unaffected by this Areanlys except as previously noted.
