I own this replica and I don't believe it to be screen accurate. However, it IS officially licensed by the Tolkien Estate/Saul Zaentz/whoever holds all the rights to all things Tolkien. It is based on the book description. It is a very nice piece of crystal and was bigger than I was expecting. (I know, I know, that's what she said haha)

I'm sure WETA will offer once the second or third film comes out... Very much look forward to that day

So the arkenstone is just a crystal golfball.

Mmm that's very cool, about being officially licensed by them. I think I will be buying this because it is book-accurate indeed! (Haha good one).
Yep! I think that too and I'm looking forward to that day. Eventhough I think I'm gonna buy this too. I really like it
HA HA HA HA! You made my night with this xD

Looks real nice, but i thought the Arkenstone was more of a teardrop shape in the movie, am i wrong? Good excuse to re-watch this weekend - I'll tell the wife it's for 'Research' purposes!!

Wikipedia says that it is a sphere in the movie. I dunno.
Does this replica have a thousand facets like book says it should have, or only a couple hundred?
(No, I don't expect you to count, but someone should know...)

Well the first picture makes it look like it only has around a hundred while the third puts me under the impression that it has around six hundred.
Looks like a great replica though, I'd love to have one.

I assume these are for general sale, where is such a thing found?

Thanks to all you sleuths out there (petesss) for confirming my thoughts.
As much as this Arkenstone is more of a representation from the book, and as lovely as it is, i do hope that a movie accurate piece becomes available from someone like Weta or Noble.
It's something that i would expect Noble to produce, giving their past offerings, i wonder if there are plans for such a thing, need to wait and see. Perhaps they are holding out until movie 2 & 3 are released as the Arkenstone will be more of a big deal after these movies, and they will have to keep some things in their back pocket for future release?

Yeah, I believe Noble and probably WETA will create too. The only thing is that perhaps I will be buying the one from Noble. Why? Example: the Evenstar from The Lord of the Rings. WETA and NC made it. BUT if you see the Evenstar in the movie NC has the more accurate version... yeah, yeah I know WETA is WETA but just saying. Few days ago I compared Noble and WETA versions with the Evenstar in the movie and just realised that! Incredible but truth. So in simple words: I do hope they make the Arkenstone and propably I will be buying the one from NC
