Orbs of carbon waste
The common term for the excreted waste of windwhales. These “eggs” are roughly a foot across, and have a pure black appearance with a nearly mirrored finish shine to them. They are made entirely of pure carbon.
When first “laid”, these eggs have an extremely high temperature, glowing a soft red. They have been observed to scorch rock, set fire to nearby flammable materials, and violently boil water they fall into. They take a considerable amount of time to cool down, similar to heated bricks, but once cooled can be cracked open with effort to occasionally find a small diamond at their heart of unsurpassed quality.
