She attempted to get her hands on it to use the power of the stone against the Dark One but he surprised her and Sartarius in the Southern Godmark and took the stone from her. In Sharrowdale the stone was used by the Dark One to power a portal with magic power that allowed him to travel back in time before the time of the Convocation.

Burning with rage at the mages of the Circle that once put it inside the stone, it obliterated the revived Circle and Hokan Ashir in the Bone Temple of Zarach.
