The Vanishing Stone is a mysterious stone from Martel for gathering Stardust. All fifty Stardust must be gathered to receive this item. This stone's purpose is at first unknown, but it can be used to unlock a difficult side quest with great rewards. At the bottom of the Flanvel Tower, an apparition of the Wingly Magician Faust appears. It is impossible to get past him unless one has the Vanishing Stone to dissipate the apparition. Then it is possible to continue down to fight the real Magician Faust, who gives a lot of experience and gold.
