A Palantíri (or singular Palantír) also known as Seeing-stones, the Seven Stones' and the Seven Seeing-stones are magical artifacts of Middle-earth, which may feature in Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor. The Palantíri allows communication with similar stones by peering into it, and would later be utilised by Sauron to corrupt Saruman. Its gaze may pierce anything, but shadow. There are different types of Palantíri, such as: the four minor stones, of Minas Anor, Minas Ithil, Amon Sùl, and the Tower Hills; The two major stones, of Isengard, and Annumínas, and, not mentioned here, and the master stone at Osgilath. The minor stones only faced one direction, and that was all you could see through them. The major stones had the power to converse with the other stones, and the master stone could see all other stones without being known as well as conversing, and looking in all diretions as the major stones do.
