Rock Troll Memory Magic users can remove, store and return other people's memories using magical purple rocks. It is not unique to Rock Trolls, as it can be learned and practiced by other wielders of magic, such as Ingrid. ("Family Business", "Smash the Mirror")
- When Belle is looking up information on how to retrieve lost memories, she is reading a page about Rock Trolls. It says:
Trolls are creatures who are said to be formidable
telepaths and are said to ably employ subtle acts
of persuasion to bend others to their will.
Some earlier scolars [sic] even went so far as to
say that they have the ability to restore
memories that have been lost.
The Talismanic Adornments of
the Rock Troll
Trolls can cast powerful enchantments – in particular spells used
to wrest someone's heart or mind.
They do this by the emanation of a magical frequency generated
through the crystals they wear about their body. The power of
this working is increased by their entire number acting
*Anglo-Saxon runes, which transliterate as "troll necclace" [sic]
- The crystals used by Ingrid to steal and return people's memories in "Smash the Mirror" and "Shattered Sight", and by Grand Pabbie to retrieve Belle's memories in "Family Business" are amethysts, which are believed to help people who suffer from a faulty memory.
- During the first Dark Curse, Henry has an amethyst on his bookshelf. ("The Stable Boy")
- Another amethyst is sitting on a shelf in Mr. Gold's pawnshop. ("An Apple Red as Blood" et al)
- An amethyst is also sitting on a table in one of the Storybrooke Elementary School classrooms. ("Darkness on the Edge of Town")
