Also called the Elendil Stone, the Seeing-stone of Emyn Beraid was housed in the Elf-tower of Elositirion among the Tower Hills, west of the Shire. This palantír was aligned westwards, and could be used to see along the length of the Straight Road to the shores of the Blessed Realm. It remained in its tower throughout the Third Age, and was taken back into the West aboard the White Ship when that age came to an end.
