|An astral rune that has been broken into shards.|
Astral rune shards are a quest item used in the Dream Mentor quest. They are created by using a astral rune on an anvil with a hammer in one's inventory. The shards can then be ground down to dust with a pestle and mortar to create ground astral rune, which is an ingredient for the shared dream potion needed in the quest.
