Fëanorian lamps

 / Feanorian lamps / Fëanorian lamp / Feanorian lamp
   The blue-shining lamps of the Noldorin Elves, of which the Noldor themselves did not know the secret.
   They are described in earlier versions of the tale of Túrin as 'crystals hung in a fine chain net, the crystals being ever shining with an inner blue radiance'.
   Gwindor possessed one of these lamps; and it was the overturning and uncovering of Gwindor's lamp so that its light shone out that showed Túrin the face of Beleg whom he had killed.
