The Philosopher's Stone was a "legendary substance with astonishing powers". The Stone created the Elixir of Life which grants immortality to whoever drinks it. It was also capable of turning any metal into pure gold. The only known Stone was crafted by Nicolas Flamel and Albus Dumbledore. Lord Voldemort used his stooge Quirrell to attempt to steal the Stone but was thwarted by Harry Potter. The Stone was then destroyed.
