The Resurrection Stone was one of the Deathly Hallows and one of Voldemort's Horcruxes. According to legend, whoever unites it with the Elder Wand and the Cloak of Invisibility will be the Master of Death. Created by, or given by Death to, Cadmus Peverell, the second of the Peverell brothers, it had the power to bring people back from the dead, but not to render them as if they had never died - that is, as clearly defined spirits, not as living people. On its surface is drawn the symbol of the Deathly Hallows: a circle inscribed in a triangle, down the middle of which ran a line. Legend has it that Cadmus Peverell, the first owner of the Stone, used the Stone in a desperate attempt to bring his beloved back from the dead; he succeeded, but only in that he managed to bring back her ghost. Driven mad from the knowledge that he could never bring her back fully, he killed himself.
