Silmaana-Halms also known as silmírë, Scirána and Silemmir is a silver powder refined from the stalks of silmanar, a plant related to parsley and water hemlock, native to temperate tallgrass prairies and steppes. Silmaana is prepared by boiling silmanar stalks in water, then filtering and boiling the extract to dryness. Silmaana scars the skin and gives 2-20 hits; it and similar toxins are used by a number of cultures for personal decoration (scarification) or identification of slaves.
An antidote against Silmaana proves to be the Stag's Purse.
