The White Phial (Skyrim)

The White Phial is a legendary bottle forged in the days when Skyrim was just starting to turn to ice. The small container was made of the magically infused snow that first fell on the Throat of the World, and possesses amazing alchemical properties. It is said that the Phial will replenish whatever fluid is placed inside of it. It was made by the master alchemist Curalmil in ancient times, and the Phial was buried with him.[1]

In 4E 201, after a lifetime of searching all across Tamriel, the Altmer alchemist Nurelion finally located the Phial and had it retrieved, only to find that it had been broken. His apprentice managed to repair the Phial, just before his master's death. It was last seen in the possession of the Last Dragonborn.[2]

The Phial was created with the usage of magic that was lost to history as of the 4th Era. The nearest modern incarnation of said lost art is the Briarheart Ritual. A briar heart seed can be used to repair the Phial and lock its magic into physical form.[3]
