--265 Tenger Hullámai

Comments encouraged!

Made in the Turquise Gem empire (Türkiz Ékkő országa) in the era of the War between gods and mortals. The sword is a mosaic work made by a rumin smith and a jeweler in cooperation with a haron woodcarver. Many types of wood in the Gem Empire rezist common erosion, not in magic scale, but as much, as neighter the hilt, nor the warrior emblem started to rot in the past centurys. Carving off the survace reveals the lighter wooden layers. Compared that they siad to carve wooden flowers, abomination figures and complete combat scenes, we can say that the carver did an average work. The wooden guard cannot protect the wrist, it is only a design element.

The blade was made from a muddy metal. The brownish tone is it's original, again we cannot talk about a masterwork, the Gem Nation smiths usually use steel to make durable works. The blade itself does not feel to be ahole. Has no blood dried up on it, but the edges are rough as a memory of combat. The sword did fought against the Grey Skin invading the Turquise Sea. Not the only blade with a lowered ballance and a "misplaced hilt", the later versions have only single cutting edge.

Finally the gemstones. Villium crystals, both purple and black. Semi-transparent. The valuable villim crystals are usually fully transparent, like glass and are blueish. They are shaped and merged mostly by the help of magic. They cannot contain magic by theirselves, they only represent the sea. By the way they are attached, seemed to represent the waves of the sea as they flood the shore. Seamen usually don't had gemstones on their swords, nor had in that era, however a higher-rank warrior would respect his/her best ally by crafting it from steel. The proper solution could be that the owner of the sword has experienced a carrier from the botton up to a higher region and did not want to change his/her faithfull servant...
