Stone dragon scales are a type of body armor that appear in UnNetHack and SlashTHEM. They are made of dragon hide like all dragon scales.


Stone dragon scales are not randomly generated, though they can be wished for or found in bones.

A stone dragon that is not killed by disintegration has a 13 chance of leaving behind dragon scales, while a dragon revived by the wand of undead turning or spell of turn undead only has a 120 chance to leave behind scales. Blue dragon scales dropped this way are always generated +0 and uncursed.


While worn, stone dragon scales confer 3 base AC and stoning resistance. Uncontrolled polymorph while wearing stone dragon scales will turn the wearer into a dragon - in UnNetHack, it will turn them into the corresponding dragon, while in SlashTHEM it will turn them into a stone dragon. Doing so while wearing the scale mail will additionally revert them to scales.
