The malleable grey brooch can be found in the Travelling Shop for &&&&&&&&&&+14000 A$35.00. It can be consecrated to a god, at which point it becomes a holy symbol for that god and changes appearance.

Description

Before being consecrated:

This odd little trinket certainly doesn't look like much, being a small wad of a soft, putty-like substance stuck to a silver clasp.  You could probably wear it as a brooch if you wished, but it's hardly likely to impress anybody as it is.

After being consecrated:

A [design] brooch.
This curious little brooch seems to be made entirely of [material], formed into the shape of a [design].  A delicate silver clasp is attached to the back to enable it to be fastened to one's clothing.  Something about the craftsmanship gives you the sense that this was not made by a mortal hand.
The [design] [glow colour].

The holyness line when looking at the item is common with other consecrated items, not just the brooch.

Usage

To turn it into a holy symbol to your god, consecrate it.

Once consecrated it can not be reconsecrated to another god.

> consecrate malleable brooch
You begin to perform the ceremony of consecration.
You clear your mind and focus on the glory of Pishe.
You reach the climax of the ceremony and cry out to Pishe, Goddess of Slight Showers.  The malleable grey brooch pulses in your grasp.
You feel the soft clay of the brooch start to warp and weave in your hands, taking on an entirely different appearance.

Variations

Its new design and material depend on the deity it's consecrated to--and there are multiple possible appearances per deity.
