Skyfire is a type of stone that makes up the Orb in the Sky. If a dragon is holding or wearing it, telepathic NightWings won't be able to read their minds, hearing a low humming noise instead.[1] If a telepathic NightWing is holding it, they won't be able to read minds at all.[2]


Skyfire is glittering[3] and scorched-looking black with flecks of silver and otherworldly metals.[4]


The Jade Mountain Prophecy

Moon Rising

Onyx kept a piece of skyfire in an amulet around her neck, claiming that the skyfire had fallen out of the sky and burnt a hole through her mother's head.

Turtle said that he found a large piece of skyfire that fell into the ocean while he was swimming. Some small pieces broke off of it and Turtle had them placed into a golden armband. Towards the end of the book, Moonwatcher asked Turtle to remove some of the pieces and give them to Qibli and Kinkajou as a gift so that they could keep their thoughts private.

Winter Turning

Moon told Turtle to give Winter one of the rocks so that it could shield Winter's thoughts as well.

Escaping Peril

Part of the reason why Moon decides to tell Peril about her powers is because Peril can't have skyfire, as it would burn from her firescales.

Talons of Power

While Anemone is casting a spell on Kinkajou's skyfire to heal her injuries and make her love Turtle as much as he loved her, Turtle cast a spell on it at the same time to protect Kinkajou from Darkstalker.

Later, Turtle gives Anemone skyfire to protect her from Darkstalker's telepathy.


  • The rock appears to have an "evil sense," as described by Moonwatcher.[citation needed]
