The Starstone tuning orb, a key required to enter the Starstone Barrows expedition, can be acquired through quests or by crafting the orb at a stonecutting table. One member of your party must have the orb to enter the expedition. That person’s orb is consumed upon use.

 Several quests give this orb to allow you access to the expedition: Starstone of Shattering (Expedition) and Reaper’s Locus (Expedition). Each of these quests will give you one orb.
