The Foundation Stone of The Great Temple of Istar is not only a physical object, but also the foundation of the faith that the temple was built upon.

Age of Despair[]

When the fiery mountain crashed into Ansalon, the Temple of Istar was sent deep into the ground, which then filled with water that became the Blood Sea. Parts of the Temple were forced into the Abyss, where Takhisis found the foundation stone of the temple. She placed the stone in the Nerakan Forest, planning to use it as a gate to enter the mortal plane.

Berem closed the gate when he pried loose a green jewel, preventing Takhisis from fully entering Krynn.
