The Power Glove is the main treasure of the Desert Palace. When worn, the Power Glove bestows upon Link incredible physical strength, allowing him to pick up small and big gray stones scattered around Hyrule. A stronger glove known as the Titan's Mitt can be obtained later on in the game. This is needed to pick up the black stones.
