"Palantír of Elostirion" (MECCG)

The Palantír of Elostirion, also known as the Elendil Stone after its former owner, was one of the Palantíri. It was stored in Elostirion on the Emyn Beraid, and in later years guarded by Círdan.

The stone was aligned westwards, along the length of the Straight Road and could only be used to look west across the sea, to allow Elendil to see the Undying Lands.

It was also used by Wandering Companies to catch a glimp of Varda. One such company, led by Gildor Inglorion, was encountered by Frodo and Sam in September T.A. 3018. They had just returned from Elostirion.

It remained in its tower until the end of the Third Age; it was then taken back into the West aboard the White Ship.
