Curse of the Neverborn's Blood
Sunbeam (Artefact 4)
Prototype Orichalcum Beamklave
A simple hollow golden cylinder roughly a foot long, its outside is simply ordained with a sunburst pattern which also acts as the grip. The inner surface of the cylinder is covered in intricate essence circuitry, the study of which could reveal much about the nature of celestial exaltation, though at the expense of a unique artefact.
