Possible Telesma are grouped into four categories:
- Mundane: Any mass-produced of-the-shelf item or device (e.g. a commlink).
- Selfmade: Any item hand-crafted by the enchanter himself (e.g. a piece of jewelry).
- Unspoiled: The item must consist only of pure natural components untouched by machinery or industrial process (e.g. a knife made of flint).
- Exotic: Rare and unusual materials, often body parts of critters (e.g. a unicorn's horn).
