Floating Stones are a large flora species found exclusively in the Grand Reef and Deep Grand Reef. Currently, the Floating Stones serve only as decorations and cannot be interacted with or scanned.


The Floating Stone resembles a suspended blue orb, with a jade green pattern on it. The orb is caught up in a maroon colored net of what appear to be its roots. This also suggests that the orb is floating.

Floating Stones emit a bright cyan bioluminescent glow.



  • It was originally envisioned that the Floating Stones would explode upon impact, thus creating a natural underwater minefield.[1] This may no longer be implemented.[2]
  • Floating Stones used to be much larger on average than the current ones in the game.
