| The Palantíri (sometimes translated as "Seeing Stones") are stones that can be used in communication with one another, and also to see many things across the face of the world. When its master looks in it, he can communicate with other Stones and anyone who might be looking into them; people of great power can manipulate the Stones to see virtually any part of the world.
The Palantír of Elostirion, also known as the Elendil Stone is stored in the tower Elostirion on the Emyn Beraid. The stone is aligned westwards towards the Master-stone in the Tower of Avallonë, along the length of the Straight Road; because of this, it can not communicate with the other three of Middle-earth.
