Introduction: How to Make the Sorcerer's Stone

Picture of How to Make the Sorcerer's Stone

The Sorcerer's Stone is a very important object in the first movie of Harry Potter. Thats why I have tried to accomplish making this magical object. Since I have succeeded in making the Sorcerer's Stone, I feel that you should also have your very own. I have also put mine on a necklace, you do not have do to this step.

Step 1: Materials

You will need: 
                           A pack of Ruby coloured jewls, that are oddly shaped
                           Hot Glue Gun
                           Black Paint
                           Paper Towls

Step 2: Body

What you will do is make the actual stone. All you do is start hot glueing the jewls together, remember the stone is suppose to be oddly shaped

Step 3: Finishing Touch

The last part is simple, put black paint here and there around the stone. Then you get a wet paper towl and rub the stone, but be careful not to rub the paint fully off. The stone is suppose to look beat up because it has been around for a long time

Step 4: Necklace

To put your Sorcerer's Stone on a necklace you must find a chain or an old, athletic, stretchy headband. Then you hot glue the necklace to stone, make sure you also go over the necklace so the necklace has no way out.

Step 5: The End

Have Fun with your "new" Sorcerer's Stone!

Awesome replica! If you don't want to or can't find the right stones, you could make some Borax or Epson salt crystals! This way turned out better for me because I was too lazy to find the right stones but either way it would be cool.

SoccerChic923 (author)tjrmaster2011-07-19

store chain

KayjayUK (author)tjrmaster2015-10-26

Correct, it was more like a lump of resin that was used to give adhesion to belt drives. Possibly more like a lump of quartz

CassidyN (author)2015-11-03

I searched for "plastic rocks that look like jewels"

I cannot believe no one has commented on this! This is so GREAT!!! I've been looking at red stones online for a long time and luckily I have never found the right one to be my "Sorcerer's Stone" This looks perfect! Can't wait to make one instead of buying one! I think you just saved me A LOT of $$$$

SoccerChic923 (author)luvs2skt2010-06-10

ur welcome!

I thought it was the philosophers stone.

yea but more people respond more to sorcerers stone because it was the name of the book and movie

Only in the U.S. It was originally, and still is in European countries, The Philosophers Stone. Because Philosopher there is Sorcerer here.

KayjayUK (author)TheGeek19842015-10-26

This quite correct, it was changed to Sorcerers only in the US because it was decided by the publisher that US readers wouldn't know what a Philosopher is. This thinking was extended to the film when it was released in the US so it had the same title as the US version of the book.

I have the book and its called the philosophers stone.

Looks perfect, specially with the black paint it's much more natural.

I really like these cheap gems. Made earring with them actually:-)

zolaris (author)2014-04-25

thanks for the instructable and congratulations!

U can use those coloured stones in gardening stores

IrishSnow35 made it! (author)2014-04-10

Giant tanzanite, anyone?

IrishSnow35 (author)2014-04-06

I'm making this, not as a magic stone but as a giant gem meant for stealing from a museum. I couldn't find any gems of all one color at A. C. Moore's, so I went to Wal-Mart and got some Aqua-Gems meant for aquariums (same thing, acrylic stones) and got four packs of multicolored ones so I'd have enough of one color.

On the bright side, I've got four other colors I can use for film purposes...x3

You might try to find the stones at a Dollar Tree. They usually get items like this
