Fragile items are destroyed when thrown, kicked, hit with a force bolt or wand of striking, or dropped from a height (from levitating, riding or down stairs).

Items in your inventory are safe from shattering.

The following items are fragile:[1]

Breaking eggs that you have laid or mirrors carries a Luck penalty.

Fragile items inside containers can break when the container is kicked, thrown, or otherwise abused. However, the algorithm used in this case is slightly different: cameras, melons, and pies will never break, eggs have a 13 chance of being damaged, and other fragile objects have a 67% chance.[2] For stackable items, each damaged stack will lose only one item. Items inside a bag of holding or a nested bag are immune.
