Several sharp gems decorate this heavy egg.
Little is known about crystalwings. Their numbers have grown in the recent years, but these brightly colored birds are still rarely seen. They are so uncommonly seen among the local villagers that they are regarded as myth, beings said to have existed centuries ago. The commoners think of them as strange creatures, living entities formed of crystals and jewels. The villagers say that these gorgeous beings fly very, very high up in the sky, and that to see one is good luck. It is thought that they travel above the clouds, and this is why they are so difficult to spot. Sometimes they are seen flying over the tops of mountains, traveling to unknown lands. Their flight is silent and graceful, and despite being covered in jewels, they usually go by unnoticed. According to ancient legend, they originate from the depths of the Caves of Nareau, where few venture dare to go. Those caves are supposedly full of treasures, but not many adventure there. It is said that crystalwing eggs are all but impossible to find, as they are covered in jewels and hidden among gems. If one travels to the city of Synara, one can find proof that these creatures exist. Once a year the majestic birds molt, and the fallen jewels are collected and made into exquisite jewelry, sold at a steep cost to the wealthy. A few magi possess such a piece of jewelry, as magic can be stored in the crystalwing's feathers.
