the Eye of Magnus

The Eye of Magnus is a huge, mysterious glowing orb that the Dragonborn and Tolfdir find at the excavation site at Saarthal. The Eye is subsequently brought back to the College of Winterhold for closer examination by Tolfdir and there it also comes under the scrutiny of Ancano.

The longer the Eye stays at the college, the more energy it seems to emit and it soon creates a magical barrier which entirely engulfs the College.
