The Scorpion's Sting
A mysterious form of jade, darker in color and unknown in origin. The Mantis have been importing it to Mura Sabishii Toshi, but do not say from where.
The heroes were able to determine that the Daigotsu family is the one supplying the Mantis with the material. Agasha Kirari and Shiba Yuki traded the head of a ningyo for a dark jade katana and a jade scabbard.
Agasha Kirari was able to sense Earth and Jade kami a piece of uncut dark jade, but the heroes are still wary of its power.
It is all the rage in the Crane courts as a symbol of mysterious beauty, and Kakita Tensen’s wife requested a piece when he traveled to Mura Sabishii Toshi. He later declined and told her he would not get her any.
