Stasis Shell

You render an important object impervious to the rigors of time, encasing it in a smooth, almost imperceptible layer of crystal.

Component Cost: 1,800 gp
Market Price: 9,000 gp
Key Skill: Arcana
Level: 16
Category: Warding
Time: 1 hour
Duration: Until moved

You perform this ritual on an object in your possession, encasing it in a thin layer of crystal. Until a creature moves the object more than 5 squares in a single round, that layer of unbreakable crystal protects the affected object from all damage and from all effects of age. It is as if time has stopped for the object.
