The egg was Nyra and Kludd's first egg. It had been previously called "The Sacred Orb" and was laid in The Shattering. Eglantine found it when she discovered that Nyra was only pretending to be her mother. She captured the egg and refused to let it go when a fire started. Eglantine only let the egg go when Boron commanded her to. The remains of the egg was later found by Nyra, who swore to kill Eglantine for dropping the egg.
