>mindboggling mystical.

Induces a trance -like state in anyone who spends a round looking at the pyramid. Affected creatures become enthralled with blussfully meditating on the nature of their navel or other insignificant physical attribute (hair, fingernails, relative size of creature's digits, etc.)

Save vs. Wis, affected creature makes saves at disadvantage. Affected creatures may attempt to save against the effect every round. If jarred or disturbed in some way, the creature may make an unmodified save, though if successful the affected creature becomes angry with the disturbance for the next two days due to them "harshing" the affected creature.

Or, it actually gains additional/alternate properties after oxidizing. Most copper and bronze statues are created with the intention of oxidizing, so I wouldn't exactly say it's a design flaw. A bronze helmet pulled from a tomb is theoretically still perfectly usable.

Sphere of Summon Abyssal Scavenger.

Abyssal scavengers are small, eyeless creatures not much larger than a softball, and are little more than a nuisance on their lonesome. They are characterized by their shiny chitinous shells and almost comically oversized teeth, each of which is more like a rasping file than an actual tooth.

These creatures feed on the detritus of the Abyss, spending their days rolling from place to place in gangs (2-7) or mobs (8+). They are capable of impressive jumping heights for their size (through unknown mechanisms) and have a preferred tactic of attacking the eyes of larger creatures while the remainder of the Scavenger's group latches onto the unfortunate victim where possible to put their rough, oversized incisors to work.

Whoops, forgot to add:
Usable 4 times per day, summons n+1 Abyssal Scavengers per use, where n is the number of times the sphere has been used that day. Charges replenish every midnight.

Can be used twice in a day if the second set of four charges are used on the night of a new moon.

Ah, but gold has been considered valuable by pretty much everyone for ever - partly because it's near untarnishable and is really easy to shape. And it's only just beaten by silver for cables.

For the untarnishable thing it was also long considered important in creating immortality as well.
also I don't have much good pictures in this theme other than gold

>>44877855
That'd be pretty cool - maybe a metal that when uncorroded is a good source/enabler for magic, but when corroded provides excellent shielding against the same - wizards shining with bling are incredibly dangerous, while warriors covered in armour with an obvious patina are nigh immune to magic
>>
>>44877837
The value of gold is in the fact that it will NEVER oxidize.
>>
>>44878095
That makes it good medium of trade and great for decorations, but not of much use outsside those two purposess.

Neither of which is really a thing outside of civilization, where murderhobos spend majority of their time.

>>44878139
Also good for tablets you want to preserve information - it's malleable as shit for all your letters and fancy pictures and it doesn't tarnish, so it's only actual damage you have to guard against

>>44880101
that's just the way that specific crystal grows. Crystals all have a habit, they don't just grow into random shapes. The habit is a manifestation of their lowest energy state on an atomic level. e.g. the lowest energy state for fluorite is an octohedron.
>>
>>44880101
The crystal lattice in a cubic mineral is cubic in shape, so the crystal grows into a cube. Similarly minerals like tourmaline grow into a pillar-like shape with a hexagonal cross-section because that's the preferred shape of their crystal structure.
Of course it only does that if the growth is unrestricted. Usually in nature you get either a lot of very small crystals, or an imperfect shape due to there not beign enough space, the growth on one or more faces being disrupted or multiple crystals growing from the same point of origin and fusing together.
>>
>>44880169
It's just so strange to think that there are actual cubes of crystal out there. It's almost as if nature picked up on our habits and precut the gems for us.
