This stone protects you from ability score penalties from aging and you cannot be magically aged. Any penalties you have already incurred remain in place. Bonuses still accrue, and you still die of old age when your time is up. If you lose the stone or its abilities are negated in some way, all age and penalties apply immediately.
Cracked: This stone protects the wearer from one type of ability damage (such as Strength or Constitution) caused by natural or magical aging. It otherwise functions as a normal nacreous gray sphere ioun stone. Price: 3,400 gp.
Flawed: Protects wearer from appearing older but does not protect against ability damage from aging. The stone remembers the wearer’s age at the time he first wore it and always restores his appearance to that age, even if he hasn’t worn it for years or it has been worn by other people. Price: 1,000 gp.
