Styx Granite is granite of Bal-Kriav that has been infused with chaotic energies from lying in this realm's waters after they have mixed with those of the river Styx. On Bal-Kriav, the Styx periodically appears in the Maitimírë lake. This fountain of water is the rift Styx Fountain. Several rivulets of the Styx also pass through the ancient vault Gamazûd.
This stone has properties of gloom and chaos, which make it useful for building temples or other structures dedicated to entropy. Various races of Drarthiel have been mining this stone since the Second Epoch, using it the constructing of great temples, strategic towers and palaces in Ugidreth, Mogdúlg, and Yastorogg.
