Warp stones are specially fitted khaydarin crystals outfitted into the armor of protoss, particularly the power suits of the Templar.[1] These crystal matrices were hand crafted works of art, and were infused with psionic energy. When a warrior is critically injured, these stones will warp the bearer away from combat and back to safety, as their psionic waves can be detected.[2] On certain infiltration missions, these warp stones must be removed to avoid detection.[1]

In high templar light armor suits, warp stones can be activated manually.[3]
