Hidden amongst the Earth's Cry the Tfurtsu Stones are named after their discoverer, Tfurtsu Eo, an eccentric old man who was always rambling about some theories or the other. The stones were discovered when Tfurtsu was looking for some mineral samples. After wandering for tree days through thick forests, he hit upon the stones which surrounded a large unbreakable glowing crystal. Elated by his discovery, he set up camp, and within a week, a multitude of scholars, artists and scientists joined him, and a joint expedition was launched to discover the meaning of the stones. In the end, is was Tfurtsu himself who came up the the answer. The stones were laid by people of long ago, who used the stones as a calendar. they were set up so that once a month, the sun would bounce off the stones and enter the various holes cut in them. There, they were guided by mirror tubes until they hit the giant crystal, which shone with a brilliant light. Any crystal bathed by that glow would remain lit for what seemed like forever, but, when broken would promptly fade into a shade of itself, forever black, and forever sharp. It was not long until a small industry rose up, selling the crystals and their dead versions. However, interest soon died off, as the prices were too expensive. Now it lays there, abandoned, except for a few visitors who wish to gain such a light. As for old man Tfurtsu, he died, happy at his discovery. He lies buried at this place, close to the crystal that would bring about both his fame and his end.
