This item is used in the Stoneback Shield schematic.

Description: This is the large gem from the headpiece of a Greater Gorgon which has retained some of her magic. A Hero can use this jewel to cast the spell Petrify thrice. Holds a maximum of 3 charges.
Usable by: All Classes
Effect: Cast Petrify
Charges: 3
Found: Hellfire Mountains West (Snake Pit), Fertile Plains (Ruined Shrine).
Weight: 0.01

Note: One of the most powerful readied items for any hero class, including even Wizard. The spell cannot be resisted by foes (except of Thallis Dwarves), so just for comparison, in one-vs-one battle (like with Nomad Champ): 4 slots readied with the Invisibility Gems mean 4 x 5 = 20 turns of immunity, while 4 slots with the full (*3) Jewels mean 4 x 3 x (3 or 6, depending of enemy's MGR) = 36 or 72 turns. Though the Wands / the temple enchantment of the Invisibility (acting 10 turns with 2 turns cooldown) is obviously even better (4 x 2 x 10 = 80 ensured turns - plus breaks in between).
