Description:

THE EMERALD STORM

Sword

This finaly crafed short sword is made from a strange (unkown) black crystal material that is razor sharp and as strong as Orichalcum. The runes and gems in the sword are carved from solid Emeralds that seem to shimmer when the sword is held. The sword appears to have a very complex true pattern (almost like two patterns merged into one) and the sword also appears to be HIGHLY MAGICAL.
