True Stone has a peculiar property: the other side of it is a shimmering mirror to reality, that shows visions of the future or the past. Sometimes, these are clear: events, deaths, and victories from a different time. Sometimes, they are confused oracles. One piece found its way into Random's hands, by way of a noble who wished his favor. Others are rumored to be floating around Amber: there are legends in the countryside, of people doomed by the visions they have seen to bring about their own end, or who are led to great riches. A few pieces have appeared in Shadow. They appear to be Real, in that they cast Shadows of their own.
