Warp stones are specially fitted khaydarin crystals outfitted into the armor of protoss, particularly the power suits of the Templar.[1][2] These crystal matrices were hand crafted works of art, and were infused with psionic energy. When activated manually[3] or the bearer is critically injured,[4][5] these stones will recall the bearer away from combat and back to safety,[2] as their psionic waves can be detected.[1][6]

On certain infiltration missions, warp stones were removed to avoid detection by foes.[1] Conversely, the same channel could be blocked to prevent the protoss from recalling troops.[6]
