From Exalted - Unofficial Wiki
This artifact looks like a set of chainmail, made out of a glass/crystally substance, tinged with the colour of the character's magical material. this chain shirt is connected to bracers on the wrists by inch thick chainsrunning from the bottom of the sleeve to the bracers.
With the expeneture of 5 motes, the chain shirt unfolds and projects a translucent supreheavy plate of the characters magical material around the character. it confers;
- stam x2 LBlig001/IridescantDiamondArmoury/B soak
- stam hardness
- no mob pen
- no other armour allowed
with 4 motes, the bracers can summon a translucent shield, again with the colour material thing. it gives +2 hand to hand save, and +3 range bonus
with another 4 motes, you can summon a sword with the same effect as glorious solar saber
All 3 effects last until the user wishes to turn them off (or 1 day, whichever is shorter)
