Ethereal Shard is a block added by the Thaumic Horizons mod. It is a kind of "Energy Cell" for CV. It can be clicked with Ethereal Essence of any Aspect which will add to its internal capacity 4 of the CV of this aspect. For compound aspects the Vis will be randomly chosen from their primal components. Once there is Vis in this device, it will be able to output it the same as an Energized Aura Node. Adding an Ethereal Essence to this device will create a particle flying around it, colored the same as the Wisp or Aura Node this Ethereal Essence was obtained from. Particles of different aspects will form a perfect polygon around the device, and the size of each particle depends on the amount of Vis of this Aspect stored in the device. The maximum capacity of this device is unlimited.
Thaumcraft 4 Research Notes
Artificial vis storage
Research aspects in this block
"The ethereal essence left over from a destroyed aura node has long been a tantalizing mystery. It seems to retain the node's ability to store vis in an easily accessible form, but cannot charge itself without the dimensional breach at the node's heart and tends to evaporate if left unattended.
You may have discovered workarounds for both of these issues. With the proper infusion, a balanced shard can serve as an artificial node core. Though it produces no vis of its own, centivis from an energized node can easily be redirected into the ethereal shard for convenient storage.
The shard has no vis capacity on its own; you must right-click it with ethereal essence in hand to add capacity. Once it is charged, vis can be drawn from the shard as though it were an aura node.
Compound aspects can only be charged if the centivis provided contains all primal aspects present in that compound. When broken, the shard drops all essence that was bound to it."
Ethereal Shard has no known uses in crafting.
