Gems that appear as dull and blotchy, not unlike old dirty glass, until interacting with socketed jewelry from Flintheart's Fine Imports.

There are 2 types of tarina, standard and pure. The standard will change the appearance of tarina settings as documented below. Pure tarinas will have the added affect of causing room messaging (atmo messaging) to occur.

Tarina's will last indefinitely while inactive, however once you place one into a setting, they begin to degrade. You can APPRAISE your tarina to estimate the amount of time left before it fades away. Once the appraisal value reaches zero (0) is when that will happen. You can extend the duration of your tarina by removing it from the setting when you are not needing to display it.

As only the atmospheric pulses cause the decay, the standard tarinas can remain in a setting indefinitely. If room atmospherics are desired, then the pure tarinas will need to be replenished as they degrade.

Released at Hollow Eve Festival 410.
