Prism Stones are miscellaneous items in Dark Souls.

In-Game Description

Warm pebble emitting a beautiful phasing aura of seven colors, with a very rare eighth.
The rainbow stone does nothing special, but can serve as a path marker, and can be dropped off a cliff to judge height by the sound of descent.
If a loud noise is heard upon its landing, then a fall off the ledge is surely lethal.


General information[]

Drops a brightly glowing stone in front of the player, with a short (but unskippable) animation. If there is a light twinkling sound upon the stone landing, then the player will survive the fall if they jump off the ledge with full Health. If a scream is heard upon impact, then the fall is fatal. There are 8 colors of prism stone. The colors serve no purpose other than aesthetic. The colors are purple, red, yellow, green, white, light blue, blue, and pink.


Prism Stones are a useful utility item in many ways. In addition to their usefulness in gauging falling safety, they can serve as path markers or reminders, and can help prevent new players from getting lost. They are also useful in making sure that the path ahead is safe. This is particularly useful in the darkness of the Tomb of the Giants, and on the invisible walkways of the Crystal Cave.



  • Although the description claims that there is a very rare eighth color, testing has shown that all eight colors occurred with the same frequency.
  • Prior to a patch, Prism Stones could be fed to Kingseeker Frampt for 100 souls each.
