The Fregosi Sapphire[1] (also referred to as "Herman"[2]) is an object that appears in the Sonic Boom television series. It is a sapphire from the Ancients that is a source of great power. It is currently kept by Knuckles the Echidna.[2]

Description

Appearance

The Fregosi Sapphire is a football-sized blue gemstone which appears as cluster of rugged crystals. Very pure, it gives off a faint glow and sparkles.

Abilities and traits

Described as (ambiguously) powerful, the Fregosi Sapphire is a great source of energy which can be harnessed as a power source for machinery. It is so powerful that it can increase a robot's power and durability to the point that it becomes nearly invincible. Even a fragment of it packs quite a punch.[2]

S2E20 Sonic and Knuckles

Knuckles guarding the Fregosi Sapphire.

The Fregosi Sapphire was uncovered at Mr. Slate's dig site of an Ancient ruin on Seaside Island. After Dr. Eggman failed to steal the Sapphire at its showcase, Knuckles the Echidna volunteered to guard it. The Fregosi Sapphire was eventually stolen again by Eggman, who used it to power his Mega Bot. The gemstone was soon retrieved by Team Sonic and returned to Knuckles, but a fragment broke off it during the escapade, one which Tails installed into Bea the Bee as her power source.[2]
