Nethicite (破魔石 [hamaseki] or 'destruction magicite' in Japanese) is a form of Magicite that can absorb magical energy. They have so far appeared in the Ivalice games.

It appears that nethicite does not form naturally, and must be manufacted instead. The art of manufacting nethicite has long since been lost to mankind - indeed, if they themselves ever knew how to produce it - but the Archadian Empire has recently (in FF12) started experimenting on the subject, and several test pieces are in use around Archadia.

Besides the manufacted pieces of nethicite from Archadia, there are several old pieces dating to the times of King Raithwall. Instead of making them himself, however, they are all pieces of a bigger piece of nethicite given to him by the Occuria.
