For the item, see Heart Stone.

Heart Stones is a quest in The Elder Scrolls V: Dragonborn. The Dragonborn must retrieve a Heart Stone and deliver it to Neloth in Tel Mithryn. This quest is repeatable and can be done any number of times.


Ask Neloth if he needs any help with his research:

Can I help with your research? "I'm running low on heart stones. If you have any with you, I'll buy one. Otherwise, I can tell you where you might find one."

Where can I find a heart stone?: "Every time the Red Mountain belches, more of them land here. Look around for impact craters, exposed rock, that sort of thing. You may need to pick away at it to pry the heart stone itself loose, but you look... strong. Good luck."


This quest can be completed by obtaining a single Heart Stone. The quickest way to obtain a Heart Stone is by mining one from the vein that is outside of Tel Mithryn Kitchen, just to the right of the building.
