A God's Locket of Retribution, as illustrated in the Manhua adaptation.

God's Stone of Retaliation is a rare mineral material that can make most witches' abilities powerless, but useless against Extraordinary witches.[1] This stone in a raw state is extremely tough and it can resist to cuts and gunshots, but is fragile once extracted.[2] For a long time, humans could only manipulate it by soaking it with either witches' or demons' blood, which will make it melt.[3] While in the Mist, Nightingale sees them as black holes.[4]

Despite the Stone's reputation as the absolute anti-witch weapon, non-Extraordinary witch Isabella could disable its effects. These stones were sold by the Church, but because of the high prices, only nobles could afford even the tiniest piece of stone.

Later on, it was shown that Isabella can transform them into Magic stones, which can probably explain how the Chaos Beast can create them as well. At that time, it is also hinted that the God's Stone of Retaliation may be alive as exemplified by its symbiotic relation with the rats seen at Hermes.[5]

Spoiler Warning
The participants of Project Gateway had their forms warped and reconstructed and after ten million years of evolution turned into a special crystalline body known as God's stones of retaliation. [6]
