Tonsil Stone
Given by Patches the Spider.

The Tonsil Stone is a Key Item in Bloodborne.


In-Game Description

A latticed, deformed rock, or perhaps a meteorite.
Appears useless, but possesses some odd gravitational force that prevents its riddance. A dubious soul once said:
"Step lightly round to the right of the great cathedral, and seek an ancient, shrouded church... The gift of the god head will grant you strength..."


Possible NPC doors to obtain the Tonsil Stone from, after setting foot in the Forbidden Woods:


When the Tonsil Stone is in the Hunter's inventory, a Lesser Amygdala, in the Cathedral Ward, will teleport the Hunter to the Lecture Building on the 1st floor. To reach the room with the Lesser Amygdala, take a left at the bottom of the first set of stairs after exiting the Grand Cathedral, in the Cathedral Ward. Continue past the area with the well and down a few ramps passing two Executioners. The second Executioner stands near the entrance to the room with the Lesser Amygdala.

Walking up to the door in the room will trigger a vortex animation and the Lesser Amygdala will grab the Hunter, followed by a cut scene. Note that no Blood Echoes will be lost and +2 Insight will be gained. This can be used to reach the Nightmare Frontier faster for a player that wishes to PVP after entering a consecutive playthrough on their character.



  • The Tonsil Stone is actually given to the hunter by Patches the Spider, who, at some point, temporarily replaces every NPC hiding from the hunt in their houses.
  • It looks like Amygdala's head. The description also refers to it.
  • It is possible that the stone is made from siderite. Siderite is mentioned to be a rare stone that came from the "heavens", which has magnetic properties, and since the Tonsil Stone's description describes it as possibly being a meteorite with "gravitational force."
  • The name of this item, in Japanese, is: '扁桃石'. '扁桃' means either 'tonsil' or 'sweet almond'; '石' means 'stone' or 'jewel'.
    • Incidently, '扁桃体' is the word for the brain part: Amygdala.
    • The scientific name for amygdala is: 'Prunus amygdalus'.
