The Pulsating Worldstone Shard is dropped by Baal on Destruction difficulty. It is the key leading to the secret uber boss Samael, Herald of the End.

Pulsating Worldstone Shard
As you touch the crystal your mind is filled with fractured memories from long ago


"...and that is why neither of our brethren will find us here. We will forge a new world and our children will know peace."

*Transmute*

Once put inside the Horadric Cube and transmuted (with no other items), the description will change to the following (in this order):

Pulsating Worldstone Shard
"A Sanctuary, forevermore. Free from the Eternal Conflict and the dangers beyond the Veil."


"The Veil? Inarius surely you haven't succumbed to Itherael's prophecies... nothing more than an attempt to explain the unfathomable."

*Transmute*


Pulsating Worldstone Shard
"The Stone has been, is, and will be the axis of our worlds. What came before is irrelevant!"


"Lillith... the High Heavens, Burning Hells, Sanctuary. These worlds, dimensions, are but a grain of sand in the universe."

*Transmute*


Pulsating Worldstone Shard
"There are many more worlds than those upon which we have stood. The Worldstone has existed since the Dawn of Time and kept us safe in the sea of possibilities, yet we can't be sure what lurks just beyond our understanding."
*Transmute*


Pulsating Worldstone Shard
...


The destruction of the Worldstone has not only exposed Sanctuary to the direct influence of Heaven and Hell. It has exposed to us all to an even greater threat.

This shard is the key, its full potential must be unlocked.

*Transmute*


Pulsating Worldstone Shard
It which bears the writings of genesis

It which can manifest their son and his disciple

It which is of the brother, savior and sacrifice

It which is of many and may cleanse the soul

It which is the splinter of the spirit in a land Unformed

At this point, the Pulsating Worldstone Shard must be transmuted with the following items:

Its description will then change to the following:

Pulsating Worldstone Shard
The Worldstone crystal has been reforged


It must now be imbued with Knowledge and Arcana
Four Greater Signets of Learning
One of each Fauztinville Great Rune

The Way will be made clear, stand ready

Transmuting the Pulsating Worldstone Shard with four Greater Signets of Learning and three Fauztinville Great Runes (one of each type) will create a Dimensional Key, which provides one charge of the skill Beyond the Veil, which opens a portal to the Edge of Nothingness, Samael's lair, if used in Act 5 Destruction difficulty. The Pulsating Worldstone Shard itself is not consumed by this recipe.
