In Breath of the Wild, Luminous Stone Deposits can be found all around Hyrule, though they are most plentiful around Zora's Domain in the Lanayru Great Spring. They can be broken by hitting them with a Weapon or by blowing them up with a Remote Bomb. Whether broken or not, hitting them with a non-wooden Weapon or an Arrow generates sparks that can start Fires. When they break, they drop Luminous Stones. They may also release some Flint, with a chance to get only one or the other instead of both. It is said that these Deposits contain many Luminous Stones within them, which are easily processed.[3] When they are destroyed, Luminous Stone Deposits will not appear again until a Blood Moon passes.

Stone Taluses (Luminous) have Luminous Stone Deposits on their bodies.[4] They serve as the Talus's weak spot, and when struck, will deal massive damage and knock it over.

Tears of the Kingdom

Luminous Stone Deposits reappear in Tears of the Kingdom, now commonly found in Caves. They are vulnerable to explosions and Yunobo's Power of Fire,[5] along with Two-Handed Weapons.[6] Additionally, Fusing certain hard Monster Parts, Rocks, Boulders and Stones to Weapons allow them to easily break through Deposits. They contain many Luminous Stones, which are easily processed.[7]

Stone Taluses (Luminous) retain the features of their Breath of the Wild incarnation, with Luminous Stone Deposits atop their bodies.[8] When the Deposits are struck, Taluses suffer a large amount of damage and temporarily collapse to the ground.
