The Silex is an item that allows a person or group to have an unlimited supply of each Element, along with energy to pour into patterns. Those who control an Element may remove that Element's stone to allow many people to use the Silex from different locations, or one person can wear it as a necklace. With the Silex, patterns that would be impossible with any person can be laid and fueled, such as bringing dead persons back to life. Ryker Slade used the Silex to bring the other Arch Mages back to life after it was retrieved for him by Nolen and Gabriel.
The Silex was made by Pike Bronwen at Ryker's request.
