Prosthetic Eye of the Mine Princess

This prosthetic eye is covered in a thin layer of decorated gold made to look like an eye with an Iris of sun rays. The Eye used to belong to a young dwarven woman who early in her life inherited her family's mining corporation after the death of both her parents in a cave in. She lost her left eye in battle against a horror of the deep that she fought over the control of the monsters lair that happened to contain a gold vein. She used the first mined gold to make this prosthetic and had her seer enchant it for her. 
The Princess of the Mines were somewhere in the Iron City when the undead broke through the defenses. Her Eye is probably still attached to her skull somewhere under the Irontick mountains.

The Eye can only be used by a person missing an eye. Wearing it gives the person +1 Charisma and the ability to once per day Detect Gold (as Detect Magic, but detects gold instead. The Gold has to be of a value of over 10 gp), Light (the Eye lights up for 3 turns).  
It does not give the user it's sight back, and any negative modifications for the loss of an eye are still there.
