The Weeping Stone of Ta'bel also known as "The Sapphire of Elzx'toka Vektamana" is a non-faceted, smooth, dark blue stone about the diameter of a human thumbnail. It smells like and occaisonally weeps salt water.
Back in the Earthdawn era, a Horror named Ta'bel did the impossible and shed a tear, which became the basis for a magical gem. In 2057 , Dunkelzahn bequeathed the Weeping Stone of Ta'bel to Robert Khamdeng.
The Stone possesses powers that augment the bonded individual's defenses against illusions and negative social interactions(such as interrogation), it also improves the bonder's empathy and at highest levels can break cases of possession and mental domination, as well as forge permanent magical bonds between two lovers.
