Refracting Icicle and Frost Atronach
Refracting Stalhrim Armor and Weapons

What is this mod

  • This mod will replace the game's vanilla glass male/female armors and weapons, and it does not change any equipment rating.
  • The shield is clear and transparent.
  • The transparent weapons are available in the optional download.
  • The optional download has a list of female armors for the default glass female armor.
  • Please check the FORUM's "What's in the Glass mod options download" list for the complete list.
  • The MAIN download's Skysan_GlassAW.esp mod activator file is "empty" to show this mod's items from the .BSA files.
  • It is required to see the light refracting shield in the 1st person view.
  • The MAIN download has an optional Skysan_GlassAW.esp mod activator file that will show 4 other standalone glass female armors.


Please click the PERM icon above.

Check this video before reporting bug

The MAIN download does not have the transparency (see through), and only the glass shield has the transprency.  
Please see the following video that shows this mod's light refracting Chillrend equipped on the right hand while the game vanilla unmodded Chillrend equipped on the left hand.


Please install the MAIN download file first, and you can stop the installation if you don't want the optional files.  Please do not mix install the MAIN download and the aMidianBorn download. 
MAIN download: Do not use the aMidianBorn download.
  • The default option has the game vanilla armor and option.
  • The optional Standard Extra item option will install the mod esp file and the CBBE armor, Nikitaa, Crusade UNP and 7Base extra female armors.

Glass options download: Do not use the aMidianBorn download.
  • The MAIN download must be installed first.
  • All optional female armors are for the game vanilla female glass armor.
  • The transparent weapons is for the game vanilla glass weapons.
  • The Glass texture options are for the game vanilla glass items.  

The aMidianBorn option: Do not use the MAIN download or the Glass options download.
  • This download has both the Bos option and the Glass Variants option, and the NMM install step will only allow only one option to use. Please do not install both if you install this option manually without NMM or MO. 
  • The aMidianBorn option download has the game default, the Crusade UNP/7Base, the SpiceGear UNP, Nikitaa, and iLoveCleavage options.
The NMM sometimes deactivates this mod's MAIN download ESP file when installing and uninstalling the optional download, so please check the SkyrimSE in-game Mod list.

The lastest MAIN download's optional Skysan_GlassAW.esp mod activator file with extra standalone glass female armors will let you see 4 other glass armors at the same time.

Use another glass texture mod

You can use another glass texture mod, but you won't see the semi-refracting crystal appearance on some of malachite pieces.
This video is illustrating the aMidianBorn glass texture usage with this mod, and the helmet was modified on all malachite pieces while the legging was only modified on half malachite pieces.  The legging will illustrate the malachite pieces without the transparency which won't have the semi-refracting crystal appearance.
