365 Days of Middle-earth ~ Day 261: Nimphelos

Nimphelos (S. ‘whitefrost’) was the great pearl given to the Dwarves of Belegost as part of their payment for the delving of Menegroth. The size of a dove’s egg, the pearl had originally been found off the Isle of Balar by the Falathrim, and it had been given to King Thingol by Círdan.
