Azura's Star is a Daedric artifact that can be obtained by completing Azura's Daedric Quest. It is essentially a reusable Grand Soul Gem. When you enchant an item or recharge an enchanted weapon using Azura's Star it becomes empty, but the Star itself remains in your inventory. It cannot hold non-player character (NPC) souls; Black Soul Gems are necessary for that. See the Lore entry on Azura for information on the history of Azura's Star.
- Technically, Azura's Star is a Grand Soul Gem. Souls will always go in the lowest value Soul Gem you have. The game fills the Star before any empty grand soul gems in most cases, except with Black Soul Gems.
- This is a very useful artifact. It is highly recommended that you do not give this artifact to Martin for the Blood of the Daedra quest.
- Weapons with Soul Trap enchantments, such as Umbra, are particularly useful when carrying Azura's Star.
- The star's behavior is hard-coded into the game engine, and it can be seen if you load the Construction Set up without selecting an ESM or ESP file.
