Phial of Galadriel in the New Line film
Token of Galadriel. The Phial was a small, magical, glass light. It immediatly made evil beings become afraid and run away. The Phial contained a small amount of bright water of Lothlorien. It also contained light of the Two Trees of Valinor. On February 26, 3019, the Phial was given to Frodo Baggins as a parting gift from Lothlorien. Galadriel told him that the Phial could be a light to him when all other lights went out. Frodo first used the Phial in Shelob's lair, but it is true that beforehand, at Minas Morgul, he held it to sooth himself from the screams of the Witch-King and his Fell Beast. At Shelob's Lair, Frodo wielded the Phial in front of Shelob, large and hungry spider. She injected poison in his body in spite of his weapon. But when Sam Gamgee wielded the Phial, Shelob grew afraid and fled into her lair, wounded by the blade of Sam's Sword. Sam kept the Phial when Frodo was taken by orcs. He used it to light his path in the Tower of Cirith Ungol when saving Frodo. At the fall of Sauron, Gandalf rode Gwaihir to save Frodo and Sam from Mount Doom. He saved the Phial and Frodo took it with him when leaving Middle-Earth.
