Ten randome things: Reader Request Month, day 39

Ten fictional gemstones:

  1. Shikon no Tama, a.k.a. the Shikon Jewel or the Jewel of Four Souls (from the animated series InuYasha).
  2. Arkenstone (from the novel The Hobbit by J. R. R. Tolkien)
  3. Tear of Offler (from Terry Pratchett's Discworld novels)
  4. The Wayne Diamonds (from the movie Batman & Robin)
  5. Chaos Emeralds (from the Sonic the Hedgehog series of video games)
  6. The Quantum Gemerald (from the Futurama episode "Less Than Hero")
  7. Heart of Kandrakar (from the W.I.T.C.H. comic book series)
  8. Sardion (from the novel The Malloreon by David Eddings.)
  9. Heart of Ahriman (from the novel The Hour of the Dragon by Robert E. Howard)
  10. The Heart of Ymir, from the manga series Ragnarok)

Today's list is for angelchicken, who wanted to see gems! [sic] mentioned in a list. This list was... well, I was going to say "inspired by" Wikipedia's list of fictional gemstones, but "lifted from" is probably more accurate. I really did select these 10 randomly from the thirty-plus gemstones listed there, so at least I've got that working for me.
