An amulet that saves the bearer by killing the person he holds most dear
Within the vicinity, a seemingly insignificant presence disturbed the inner core of Tasmear. It traveled through the connecting hot streams that were networked throughout the fathomless interior of the earth, cooling the sizzling streams of some of their effervescence as it passed, adding an element of sapphire incandescence in its wake, flavoring the dull earth with its magical elegance.
At first floating unseen down a hot stream, LifeShaker made its escape, slipping away from the one who had temporarily possessed it. The amulet had given newfound life to that creature, but the illness that would have seeped through to kill him instead poisoned the person of this world that he loved. This portion of LifeShaker's power was a dastardly trade off, bringing health back to one but shaking the life out of another.
The sapphire glow of the amulet remained as it reached the lake and sunk to its depths, but the glow was fading, as was the life of the one it had sacrificed. When it reached the bottom of the lake and buried under sea level to continue its journey, the amulet was hiding itself from every living creature. During that instant, LifeShaker's glow in its sapphire dissipated its final spark, culminating the life on this world of its victim at the exact moment that the poison would have ended the life of its last would-be possessor
