Emits a faint light from the location it is placed
Glowstone is a Consumable Item in Elden Ring. Most Consumables grant various effects such as restorative properties for recovering HP, removing certain negative status effects or applying temporary buffs and debuffs, while others can be thrown at enemies to deal damage.
Polished Ruin Fragment that shines brighter than Rainbow Stone.
Emits light from the location it is placed, illuminating surroundings.
However, the effect is short-lived, and it lacks the diverse colors of rainbow stones.
May serve some benefit in dark places, or at night.

The most important exploration item. At least, glowstones are the most important item if you want to be able to see things in the dark with the telescope. Every other light source (torch, lantern, starlight) goes away when you use the telescope but glowstones do not.
Best item in the game
Having these require dewkissed herba has to be the biggest oversight regarding this item. Its literally pointless as soon as you get a torch or the lantern. And early on you will never be able to craft these so what the **** is the point of them.
I love these things. It's a pity they don't last long.
My new source of light. I'm kinda tired of the lantern, and I don't want to remove my weapons. Lovin it and seems super easy to farm!
Wish we can craft arrows out of these.
I really wish DS1 had these.
I go through these like candy. The lantern is NOTHING compared to these funny glowy rocks.
“Faint light” my ass, these things are like shining a flashlight in your eyes. Very useful if you’re like me and forget to buy a torch/lantern on your characters and go somewhere dark
You can light up a whole room with just one of these.
This passes through the breakaway floor in Sainted Hero's Grave.
When used as a lightsource the glowstone will last for 2 minutes before despawning. Whether that's from when you press "use item" or when the stone hits the ground I'll leave for someone else to figure out.
I like to pile as many of these as I can in one spot, and create my own personal sun for a few minutes.
Either this is subject to the same 'doesn't shatter on a kill plane' issue as a Rainbow Stone, or it doesn't explode when a drop is fatal vs a Rainbow Stone, but I've tried to use this the same way and invariably it won't pop and the drop will kill me if I don't double-test with a Rainbow.
Extremely useful in a variety of situations where you need all hands free and a strong light source. In particular I like to use these to check a room I'm about to drop into for traps, as it shines like a million candlepower floodlight and makes it easy to see whatever's waiting to kill you.
Toss one down from a cliff, if it does not break, you can safely drop down too
"Faint light" is a severe understatement. This thing is bright as hell. Easily as bright as raising a torch you're holding in an offhand, or using the Starlight sorcery. Even better, it's white light, so in practice it actually does a better job illuminating dark areas than those alternatives do.
These are immensely useful in caves, its as bright as a torch when holding L1 (raises brightness and range) but doesnt seem to negatively affect your stealth as of 1.02. I can be in its light yet still undiscovered at the same range as darkness.
