Cap Shard is a bluish ice that is born of the magical energies coursing through the Ice Cap region. This blue ice is all over Ice Cap, mixed in with the natural ice and snow. It is mainly of value to markets close to Ice Cap. Cap Shard takes hundreds time longer to melt than normal ice. This makes it useful for refrigeration or to cool the drinks of some wealthy personage of Cinazan.
When Cap Shard is put under extreme pressure, it becomes as hard as a gemstone, changing into Lapis Ice.
