Dark Sun: North & South Tablelands Games
Once owned by Shurpanakha, Oathkeeper of the Sacred Flame
A magical necklace of this sort appears to be a normal piece of nonvaluable jewelry until it is placed about a character’s neck. Even then, the true nature of the item will be revealed only if the wearer is a priest (excluding druids).
Bead of blessing—as the 1st-level spell of the same name
Bead of curing—cures blindness, disease, or serious wounds (as the appropriate spells)
Bead of karma—allows the priest to cast his spells as if he were four levels higher (with respect to range, duration, etc.)
Each special bead can be used once per day. All powers of the special beads are lost if they are removed from the necklace.
