Mind Stone (Vision / Loki’s Sceptre)– Thanos sent Loki to bring back the Teserract. During this war, Loki was entrusted with the Mind Stone and it was held in the Sceptre. This stone was retrieved by the Avengers after the war. Tony’s experimentation with the Mind Stone led to the birth of Ultron and it eventually led to the birth of Vision; the stone sits on
Reality Stone (Aether) – Aether is a red floating liquid that attached itself to host and makes them stronger. At the end, it was given to The Collector for safekeeping. But the entire house of the collector was wrecked during Guardians of the Galaxy.
