Even in total darkness, this string of iridescent pearls glistens like sunlight on calm seas. To wear them is to know the quiet strength of the Earthbones themselves.

Pearls of Ehlnofey is a Mythic necklace that comes with the Arcane trait. It can be obtained through the Antiquities system. It was released as part of the Markarth DLC.


1 item: When you attempt to use resources to cast a healing ability while in combat and your dominant resource is under 50%, gain 3 Ultimate.


  • Five fragments are required to create the item, all of which require a master-quality Lead in order to scry, and are classed as master difficulty to excavate.
  • You are required to be at least level 7 in Scrying, and have the Antiquarian Insight IV passive in order to scry Master difficulty leads.
  • Fragment Leads are largely found in the same zone as where the fragment is excavated, save for a few cases where it may be found in different zone.

  Aetherquartz Prayer Beads Delve Bosses Auridon These appear to be polished quartz beads. Several Tamrielic cultures employ beads like this in religious practice--particularly the High Elves and Khajiit. Now that I take a close look at them, though, they might not be quartz after all. — Verita Numida Aetherquartz! We High Elves use it in all sorts of things, but most notably in our calian spheres and high ascendant jewelry. Curates and mages use ground pumice and ocean sand to smooth them out. These are remarkable. The finest I've ever seen! — Amalien Judging by the arcane energies they're emitting, I think these beads might predate the High Elves, Amalien. Based on the holes and the uniformity of the shapes, I wager these belonged to a magic necklace. Far more powerful than their modern successors. — Gabrielle Benele

  Coral Clasp Public Dungeon bosses in Root Sunder Ruins Grahtwood Hmm. Elf-craft for sure. Looks like some kind of jewelry clasp, but it's made entirely out of coral. Don't find many items like this outside the Summerset Isles. Judging by the intricacy, it must have belonged to someone important. A curate maybe. — Ugron gro-Thumog That clasp belongs to magic necklace. It's wild magic, though. Primordial energy. You only find magic like that in old, old places — rivers and reefs where the Earth Bones never quieted down. I feel the touch of the Ehlnofey on this for sure. — Gabrielle Benele Aldmer wizards like Maelor the Twin and Surillion Ocean-King wore necklaces of power that incorporated all kinds of watery stones and pearls. They had names, just like the mages who wore them. But they were collectively known as Pearls of the Ehlnofey. — Amalien
  Great Eltheric Pearl Nerien'eth in Crypt of Hearts II Rivenspire I don't think I've ever seen a pearl this large and lustrous--and believe me, I attended more than my fair share of soirees in the Imperial City's Nobles District. I'm no naturalist, but it must come from a deep sea shellfish of some variety. — Verita Numida Ouster troubadours sing songs about great Eltheric clams found out in the reefs near Thras and sea-dwelling Ehlnofey with hearts made of pearl. Reginus will claim it's bawdy metaphor, but I think pearls like this might hold real Aurbic power! — Amalien I don't dispute the arcane potential of pearls. Unlike most stones, they have living origins. This makes them unique in the world of enchantment. Even so, to claim they share some special connection with basic physical laws seems a bit far-fetched. — Reginus Buca
  Nilumin River Pearls High Kinlord Rilis in The Banished Cells I Auridon That's quite an array of pearls there. Based on the curious shape and the pinker hue, I believe these come from freshwater shellfish. Anyone could have fished them out, but the High Elf aesthetic of this pouch they're in makes their origins quite clear. — Reginus Buca Those aren't just any freshwater pearls, Reginus. It's a set of Nilumin River Pearls! Aldmer divers called them "Tears of the Ehlnofey." Ancient alchemists ground them into powder remedies and some Aldhessia healers even wore them as talismans. — Amalien I can attest to that Elven obsession with pearls--but not just in healing. Fandamorien's "Treatise on Vigor" spends a whole chapter detailing the augmentative power of pearls on both mages and athletes. Maybe the Ehlnofey really do favor these things. — Gabrielle Benele
  Silver Strand of Syrabane Safeboxes in The Reach The Reach This strand is so thin and lustrous I almost thought it was spider silk. Now I see it's actually threaded silver! The only place I've ever seen jewelry like this is around the necks of High Elf Sapiarchs. — Gabrielle Benele It's not High Elf work, Gabrielle. This is Aldmer craftsmanship. Syrabane taught my ancestors how to thread silver like this for talismans and magic pendants. We lost the knack for it though. Classic Altmer, right? We forget all the important stuff! — Amalien It's certainly lovely on its own, but take a closer look. See the intermittent tarnishing? I'd say someone strung beads or pearls on this. Perhaps both. If what Amalien said about Syrabane's influence is true, some magic pearls might not be far off. — Verita Numida
