Heat is another commonly found shard type. It is commonly used in cooking, heating homes, and forging metals. These are thought to work similarly to how a novaborn creates heat and fire from their body.
Often red and orange in color, heat shards can be tuned to many different temperatures as controlled by a novaborn. However, it will need to recharge after a while depending on the temperature it reached and its overall size. With the presence of an energy shard, heat shards can produce an almost constant heating effect.
