Stones

The type of stone used affects the price, multiplying it by some amount. For example, something made from lapis lazuli will cost twice as much as the same item made from amber.

It also affects the item's description. Different stones have different colours and different descriptive adjectives. So, while a bloodstone choker looks like this:

This dark red choker is made of small chunks of gleaming bloodstone, carved by an expert hand and suspended at intervals on a fine gold chain.  The finely facetted stone is a delight to behold.

A malachite choker will look like this:
