The Arkenstone was a wondrous gem sought by Thorin Oakenshield which had been discovered beneath the Lonely Mountain by Thorin's grandfather Thrór, and then shaped by the Dwarves. The Arkenstone had been the family heirloom of Durin's folk, but was lost when the dragon Smaug stole the mountain from the Dwarves.
Since the original was lost to a dragon, our own Mike Froebe has accepted the challenge to cut a new and more powerful Arkenstone. Can't wait to see the results. His design sheet is attached. Will you accept this challenge as well?
