A Nice Surprise!

Early next morning, Eolar takes an hour to check his Mule ‘Meldo’s’ pack. He goes through the equipment and treasure recently acquired to make a precise inventory. Eolar always likes things to be in order.
As he lifts the jewelled box found in the Aranea's lair, he pauses. It seems heavier then it should be. The tiny key is in the lock, so he turns it and with a gentle ‘click’ it opens.
Inside sits a beautiful golden necklace supporting seven different sized rubies. One very large, two slightly smaller, two smaller still and two relatively small ones. Eolar stares at the beautiful piece of jewellery.
He’s positive it wasn’t there before.

So, is Eolar going to try this necklace on, or shall we cast identify on it. I can donate a pearl.

Bodush looks at the necklace. Reaching for one of his pearls, he starts casting Identify...

Bodush takes the necklace into a private room and prepares himself.
He carefully crushes one of his pearls and pours the chalky dust into a goblet of dark red wine. Sitting down cross legged, he then stirs the mixture together with a large owl feather.
Tightly clutching the necklace, he closes his eyes and gulps the potion in one.
Upon opening his eyes, he stares intently at the necklace in his hand...
The golden chain, is merely that. Expensive and beautifully wrought, but normal.
The seven rubies however pulse with hidden heat.
The biggest is capable of producing an enormous ball of fire when thrown. The others producing lesser effects depending on their size.
Bodush shudders and then smiles.
You could destroy a small army with this!
