The Ancient Tablet is an item in Skyward Sword. It is comprised of three fragments: Emerald, Ruby, and Amber. It is kept Inside the Statue of the Goddess on an altar that is revealed after Link hits a Goddess Crest with a Skyward Strike. The full tablet resembles a map of the Surface, and each fragment corresponds with a certain region. When a fragment is placed in the altar, it creates a pillar of light that cuts through the cloud barrier, creating a path to the Surface from The Sky.

As the second fragment of the Ancient Tablet, the Ruby Tablet is found within Skyview Spring. After Fi deciphers a message from the Goddess, it appears in a burst of light in front of the Goddess Statue. Fi suggests that Link takes it back to the main Statue of the Goddess in Skyloft, which in turn opens up a path to Eldin Province.

The Amber Tablet is located in the Earth Spring. Like the Ruby Tablet, it only appears after Fi explains that Zelda has departed for the Lanayru Desert. Once again, Link must place the Amber Tablet in the altar inside of the Statue of the Goddess, this time to open the path to the Lanayru Province.
