In The Lord of the Rings and The Unfinished Tales Tolkien refers to the stone that was situated in the Dome of Stars in Osgiliath as the master of the seven seeing stones. That stone was lost in the kin strife of Gondor in the third age. However, in the Simarillion an 8th stone is mentioned, supposedly located in Tol-Eressia. This stone is also said to be the master stone.
