Eightfold Blessings of Amaterasu on the Weight Stone under the Sunlit Watery Heavens (水天日光天照八野鎮石, Suiten Nikkō Amaterasu Yano Shizu-Ishi?, localized as "Eightfold Blessing of Amaterasu") is a mirror that Tamamo-no-Mae wears on her body. It is the temporarily released form of the Weight Stone of Tamamo (玉藻鎮石, Tamamo no Shizu-Ishi?), a sacred regalia among sacred regalia, which was enshrined at Izumo after being brought from heaven by "Takehinateru no Mikoto." According to the descriptions of the Nihon Shoki, it was taken from Izumo at the order of the Imperial Court and then later enshrined at Kawachi. It possibly later came to be known as the Yata no Kagami, the divine repository of Amaterasu, and it is thought to be the prototype of the To-Kusa no Kan-Dakara (十種神宝, ? lit. "Ten Kinds of Sacred Treasures") of the Mononobe clan, which holds the power to revitalize souls and life-force.[2][3]

The mirror levitates around Caster in battle, which she uses it to hit enemies in close combat. She doesn't use this Noble Phantasm much[3], but once its function as a Noble Phantasm is activated, she summons a circle of levitating Ofuda surrounded by a number of glowing Torii, charges the mirror with energy, and stands in the middle of the circle to draw in the energy. The energy drawn in allows her to use her curses without the need to expend any magical energy for a limited time, comparable to performing as if she has an infinite magical energy supply.[4] This is because the costs of using the curses are set to zero.[1] It is normally a divine treasure of the land of the dead that can even bring the deceased back to life, done by deploying boundaries that can isolate the principles active in the world of the dead, but the Servant form of Caster hasn't been granted the authority to use that much power.[1][2] Its rank as a Noble Phantasm is D, an awfully low rank contrary to its original rank, but that is because only a very small part of the original ability can be drawn out.[4] Otherwise, it could have been an EX ranked Anti-World Noble Phantasm that has the range of covering a single country, and it could be used by Tamamo-no-Mae only while in her nine-tailed form.[1][4]

To activate the Noble Phantasm, Caster recites the following incantation:

God who resides in Izumo.
Aesthetically certain,
Breath of the soul.
Residing in the mountains and watery heavens, Amaterasu.
Let this freely become the proof of purification.
Thy name is Weighted Stone of Tamamo.
Become the sacred treasure, Mirror of Uka!
Just kidding☆

出雲に神在り
審美確かに 魂に息吹を
山河水天に天照す
是自在にして禊の証
名を玉藻鎮石
神宝宇迦之鏡也
なんちゃって☆
