|Examine||A rune essence chip that has been broken into shards.|
Rune shards can be made by using a hammer or a chisel on a piece of rune essence or pure essence to crack them into small pieces. The shards can then be ground down into rune dust in a pestle and mortar.
Rune shards and rune dust appear in the Garden of Tranquility quest, when rune dust must be added to a plant cure potion to revive some badly damaged vines in Bernald's garden behind his house in Taverley.
