The Shard of Gluttony is one piece of the Sihedron (also called the Shattered Star) made from inubrix, which is a pale skymetal. Its owner can cast a vampiric touch spell daily. The curse of this shard results in the owner always feeling hungry and thirsty. Additionally, the owner is at risk of immediately consuming all food and drink on his person.1
