The Diamond of Kalea is located on Kalea's extreme west coast and called as such because its completely made of a crystalline substance called Skyglass. Home of the Alvina of the Stars, cultural mecca of knowledge seekers, and rife with Ethaefal, this remote city shimmers with its own unique light.

[Bharani Library] A Wealth of Knowledge

Deliath had woken up early and finished her work at the Catholicon before seeing that it was still light. She'd adjusted well to Lhavits odd sleeping nature and saw it as far more productive than her time in Sunberth, and it had given her much more time to admire the beauty of Leth's night time.
Sighing, she glanced around, wondering what she could do, before she remembered a place she had been told of. A library that was far more extensive than Sunberth's had been.
Smiling, she realised she was already on Tenten peak, which meant that the library couldn't be too far, and joyfully she set off, a slight skip in her step.

It wasn't too long before she found herself outside the Bharani Library. It was a beautiful structure and she couldn't help but admire it for a few moments before stepping inside.
Its interior was just as beautiful, if not more, and for a few moments she found herself awestruck. The only books she'd seen before were the few in the Sunberth library and they weren't in the best state.

Grinning widely she began checking the shelves, her eyes scanning each individual books title and her lips silently mouthing the words.
'A brief history of Lhavit, The uses of Skyglass, Scavenging and repurposing scrapped cloth'
Her hand landed on the last book that she'd read and her brow furrowed. She hadn't heard the word 'repurposing' beforehand and it had peeked her interest.
Carefully she pulled the book out and opening it, her eyes scanning the first page.
'Old discarded scraps of cloth can be salvaged and repurposed into something more valuable' she read and the word began to make sense now that she was reading it in context.
She began reading the book, as it described the process of finding scrap cloth on the streets, in other people's waste that they'd thrown away, or buy asking people if they had any tattered cloth they had no use for. The book also expressed the writers disapproval of theft, describing it as an activity that only those with very loose morals took part in, and that everything could be obtained without stealing from others.
The book then went onto describe possible accessories like hairpieces and bracelets that could be made, before beginning to describe the process.
Deliath rolled her eyes as soon as the book mentioned sewing. It was something that she had never learnt as she had always been content to wear clothes with holes in them.
Still she continued reading, enjoy the feeling of holding the book despite its contents now making very little sense.
It explained how to lay out small scraps of fabrics next to each other, and then the process of sewing the scraps together to make a larger, more 'unique' piece of cloth.
'Unique?' Deliath thought to herself. 'More like downright ugly!' she smirked slightly, before skipping over the pages until she found something that didn't involve sewing.
It was a bracelet that was craftable from longer, thin pieces of cloth.
'Tie eight strands together and begin to knot them together. First knot together strands one and two, then three and four, then five and six, so on and so forth.' she read in her mind, skipping a few parts that didn't look important. 'No tie together strands two and three, four and five, blah-dee-dah, leaving only strands one and eight not knotted. Repeat from the first step.'
In her mind it looked simple enough, and it looked like something she would be more than willing to try, but the book was beginning to bore her. It contained three ways to create things, two of which required sewing, something that Deliath wasn't too bothered about learning, and the part that she could try was quite wordy with lots of numbering and confusing knotting patterns.

Sighing, she closed the book and put it back before beginning to check the other books.
