Phial of Galadriel
It was a small crystal phial and rays of white light sprang from Galadriel`s hands as she held it. In it was caught the light of Eärendil`s star ( The hallowed Silmaril Eärendil brought to Valinor with which upon his brow he sails the sky ) imbedded in water from Galadriel`s fountain. The light seemed to be switched on by either calling upon the the mightiest Valiere Varda or simply by holding the phial up when in dire need. It seems that light was not its only force but it also raised the spirit of the wielder, strong and piercing as a silver flame, a heart of dazzling light in a globe of airy crystal sparkling with white fire which would sting like a razor-sharp blade in an evil mind.
The words that came to Frodo`s mouth explain the light so very well " Aiya Eärendil Elenion Ancalima" meaning : Praised (or welcome) Ray-of-Light (of ) Western-star (so) Exceedingly bright. That is if you translate the original Anglo-saxon name Earendel which means Ray-of-Light.
If using the Elvish name Eärendil it means Ocean or Sea lover and thus it will be "Greetings Eärendil Sparkling-star of Great Light"
T.A.3019. (16/02) The Phial of Galadriel was a gift from Galadriel to Frodo, to help and aid and light for him, as she said, in dark places when all other lights go out. It will shine ever brighter when night is about you.
(12-13/03 ) Frodo used the phial against Shelob in her tunnels. Frodo gives Sam the phial at the end of the tunnel and Sam uses it against Shelob when he thinks Frodo is dead.
( 14/03 ) Sam passed the Two
Watchers at the intrance to Tower of Cirith Ungol
by using the phial when he was searching for Frodo.
