Wild Force Shard
this was the term used by the Jedi Order of the Old Republic to describe any artifact - usually a crystal - which had been imbued with the power of the Force. The shard actually resonated with the Force, sending out ripples of energy that affected the world around it. Because the shard simply existed in the Force, it lacked any affinity to the Light Side or the Dark Side. Instead, it simply altered the effects of the Force in its vicinity. Although any Force-sensitive individual could hold the shard and use it to augment their own powers, such use was frowned upon by the Jedi Order because the shard could amplify either side of the Force, potentially turning a good Jedi down a path of evil.
