The Light of Ong Zwarba


Illustration

From Dunsany's The Fall of Babbulkund:

"Such a stone is Ong Zwarba that there are none like it even in the turban of Nehemoth nor in all the sanctuaries of the sea. The same god that made Linderith made long ago Ong Zwarbaj; she and Ong Zwarba shine together with one light, and beside this marvellous stone gleam the three lesser ones of the sea."
