Description:The great pearl given by Elu Thingol to the Dwarf-lord of Belegost.
"One [pearl] there was as great as a dove's egg, and its sheen was as starlight on the foam of the sea." The pearl was obtained by Thingol from Cirdan, whose people acquired pearls in great number from the waters around the isle of Balar.
