The Sparkling Stone (Japanese: かがやくいし Sparkling Stone) is a Key Item introduced in Generation VII. They are gifted to worthy Trainers by the tapu. It is the raw material needed to create a Z-Ring or Z-Power Ring. According to Professor Kukui and Lillie, Sparkling Stones are actually the parts of Necrozma's body that were lost due to the actions of the Ultra Recon Squad's ancestors. These parts then came to Alola after passing through an Ultra Wormhole.

Sun, Moon, Ultra Sun & Ultra Moon chapter

In The Delivery of Rotom and the Girl, Sun received a Sparkling Stone from Tapu Koko. In The Party Crasher and Guzma the Destroyer, Sun used the Sparkling Stone as a splint for his broken arm. When angered by Gladion in The Final Match and a Surprising Finale!, Sun accidentally used the Z-Move Inferno Overdrive with his Litten, Dollar, defeating Gladion's Type: Null. Due to the strain of using the attack, Sun immediately passed out from exhaustion. Hala took the Sparkling Stone in order to convert it into a Z-Ring for Sun to use. Once completed, Hala had Kahili deliver it to Sun at the Ruins of Life.

In The Wild Full-Power Pose of Fire, Kiawe is revealed to own a Z-Ring, which he received as a Sparkling Stone from Tapu Lele five years prior to the Sun, Moon, Ultra Sun & Ultra Moon chapter. In order to prevent Sun from using Inferno Overdrive against him again, Gladion had his Type: Null shatter Kiawe's Z-Ring when the latter attempted to lend it to Sun, leaving only the Sparkling Stone intact.

In The Truth and Island Kahuna Hapu, Hapu received a Sparkling Stone from Tapu Fini after it accepted her as the next kahuna of Poni Island.

In Shock!! Father in the Pendant!, Hau revealed that, in the midst of his training, he had managed to obtain a Sparkling Stone, which Olivia had fashioned into a Z-Ring for him.
