@Zack4358 At what point do they appear ? Do you play rotationally ?

@crinrict I don't play rotationally. They mostly appear when the sim aged up. But they also appear randomly in the inventory.

@Zack4358  A Glimmerstone will appear in personal inventory when using a cauldron to cook a meal. Have any of your Sims done that?

Yes, my sims sometimes cook food at the cauldron. I wonder why this sim gets a Glimmerstone then, since non-spellcaster sims can't use them anyway, there is only an option to destroy this Glimmerstone.

@Zack4358  Spellcaster or not having the Glimmerstone appear in their inventory is a subtle hint. Kind of a nudge to remind you about the Magic Realm.  Wizard

Glimmerstone appears in each sims inventory even if they are not a spellcaster.  I destroy them and then next time i check their inventory they are back.  It started after the september 3rd update.

This happened in my game as well! I noticed random Glimmerstones in my non-spellcaster Sims' inventories but had no idea how they got there. However I can recall them cooking Mac and Cheese in my spellcaster's cauldron... definitely a bug.

I get this in every sims inventory. it happens when they travel, go to a wormhole, age up, or just at random. it happens to sims that have never touched a cauldron. I have 75 played sims in this save and every single one has had a glimmerstone. I am constantly destroying them.
