The Stone Mirror, otherwise known as Kyouseki (mirror stone), is an extraordinary item found throughout the Fatal Frame series. The stone mirror is the third of three recovery items, the other two being Herbal Medicine and Sacred Water. The item consists of a highly polished stone resting on a small cloth. According to in-game descriptions, the stone houses a protective spirit that gives the item its healing effect.
The stone mirror, when held by the player, revives the character automatically after all of their health is depleted. This can only be done once for every stone mirror, and only one can be held at a time. The potency of the stone mirror makes it one of the most valuable items in-game, and it is subsequently rarer than the other two restorative items. The stone is only activated when the player's health is depleted and cannot be used through the Menu Screen.
Fatal Frame II: Crimson ButterflyEdit
Fatal Frame III: The TormentedEdit
Fatal Frame IV: Mask of the Lunar EclipseEdit
- The stone mirror, along with most other recurring items, received a slight change in design for the release of Fatal Frame IV: Mask of the Lunar Eclipse. The old design consisted of a small polished stone resting on a folded purple cloth. The new design is, more or less, the same, however, the stone is noticeably more intricate and the whole design seems more bright and detailed.
- Many cultures hold superstitions about mirrors. Many believe mirrors are able to reflect the soul, which could indicate why the stone mirror is given its abilities in-game.
