The Attunement Sphere is a device created by the Dwemer that was used in conjunction with a Dwarven Mechanism to access Blackreach.

It is a miscellaneous item in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim given to the Dragonborn by Septimus Signus during the quest Discerning the Transmundane.


They were used in three specific Dwemer cities: Alftand, Mzinchaleft, and Raldbthar to unlock the way to Blackreach, by placing them into Dwarven Mechanisms.


  • There's also a second Attunement Sphere in Sinderion's Field Laboratory in Blackreach.
  • The attunement sphere changes color as it plays music that the Dwemer ruins uses to open ancient doors.
