In Blood Rites, during the Soulgaze vision with his brother Thomas Raith in which he sees and speaks with their mother, Margaret LeFay give him a small gem or jewel. Margaret calls it Insight, or knowledge. And when she passed it to Harry, he saw a flash and felt a tingling pain in his head. Harry comments that you don't gain knowledge without a little pain. There doesn't appear to be any actual jewel that he holds in his hand when he comes out of the Soulgaze.

Harry hurriedly and not too neatly attached the gem to his pentacle pendant which he also inherited from his mother. It fit perfectly. He made a scouting trip to the Red Court holding facility while Susan Rodriguez and Martin were still unconscious from the Leanansidhe 's spell.  He used the gem to travel to the security holding in Nevada with Susan and Martin to break in to gain information on where his daughter was being held.
