The Resurrection Stone is a magical object that allows the user to bring back the dead, although they only exist in a shadowy and insubstantial form.

This choice ultimately led to the downfall of the Peverell family.

This is mentioned in the book "Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban" when Harry's broomstick is destroyed during a Quidditch match against Hufflepuff.
