The Sunstone (formerly Stones of Sunlight) is an essential item in Dragon Quest and Dragon Quest III. In both games, they are hidden inside Tantegel Castle and must be found in order to finish the story.
The stone is hidden down an out-of-the-way staircase in the southeastern section of the castle. A Magic key is required to access the staircase. The player must speak to the sage to receive it.
The Sunstone is in a hidden chamber on the first floor of the castle. When the final boss is defeated, the stone can be handed down to the sage that has it in Dragon Quest, fulfilling the prophetic dream that he had.
Appearing as a bonus reward independent of the plot, the Sunstone cast Kafrizzle for free when used in battle. This is exclusive to the 3DS remake.
In game description: A radiant rock that sizzles with solar heat It is one of the rarest items in Dragon Quest IX, but can be simply made with 2 lucida shards, 3 mirrorstones, and 1 Hephaestus' flame. Can be sold for 363 gold.

- The Sunstone appears in the Captain N: The Game Master episode "Trojan Dragon". Though rather than being a relic used to create the Rainbow Drop, it is established as the energy source of the N Teams' Palace of Power, which is stolen by a minion of the Dragonlord to accelerate the growth of the legendary Golden Dragon.
