This rare ioun stone was developed by ancient scientists attempting to cure a debilitating plague that shunted parts of the victim into the Ethereal Plane. It allows its owner to consciously reach across the veil between the Material Plane and the Ethereal Plane.
This ioun stone resembles a small, pearl-white tetrahedron. This stone grants the ghost touch special ability to the user’s unarmed strikes and to melee weapons she wields. The user can also focus her gaze as a standard action and gain the benefits of see invisibility for 1 round. If the user is incorporeal, corporeal melee weapons she touches gain the ghost touch special ability, allowing her to pick up and use corporeal melee weapons as normal.
Resonant Power: This stone grants the ghost touch special ability to normal or masterwork light armor the user has worn for at least 24 hours. This benefit lasts as long as the armor is in the user’s possession.
Cracked: This stone functions as normal, but the user’s unarmed strikes and melee weapons lose all enhancement bonuses and other weapon special abilities except for the ghost touch special ability granted by this stone (although a magic weapon that loses its enhancement bonuses still counts as a magic weapon for the purpose of overcoming damage reduction). Price: 32,000 gp.
Flawed: This stone functions as normal, but it doesn’t grant the user the benefits of see invisibility. Price: 45,000 gp.
Cost 24,000 gp; Feats Craft Wondrous Item; Special creator must be 12th level
