The Devil-Stone is a 1917 American silent romance film directed by Cecil B. DeMille and co-written by his mother Beatrice and his some time lover Jeanie MacPherson. The film had sequences filmed in the Handschiegl Color Process (billed as the "DeMille-Wyckoff Process").

Only two of six reels are known to survive, in the American Film Institute Collection at the Library of Congress.[1][2]

This was the last of Farrar's films for Paramount.


Fisherwoman Marcia Manot (Farrar) finds an emerald which belonged to a Norse queen, and is cursed. Fortune hunter Silas Martin (Marshall) marries her to get the emerald.
