The Shining Trapezohedron is a fictional artifact appearing in H.P. Lovecraft's short story "The Haunter of the Dark" and Robert Bloch's sequel, "The Shadow from the Steeple." The Trapezohedron serves as a window on all of space and time. By gazing into it, its wielder would summon Nyarlathotep in his avatar as the eponymous Haunter of the Dark. In exchange for horrible sacrifices, the Haunter of the Dark would reveal other worlds and arcane knowledge.
