The perfect palantir for a Garden of Ithilien.

Located at the back entrance to the garden path, this sunset-colored palantir catches and reflects light from the setting sun. It is pearl irridescent, but also partially transluscent which makes it softly glow at night when it catches rays from a nearby pathlight.
Seen through the branches on the front side of the

During the day it is nestled among Summer Dream and Perfect Moment roses, which also look best at sunset.
The description for this tiny and sparkling palantir is on the Hobbiton Happiness page!
