The mask grants you a +4 bonus on all saving throws against visual effects, including gaze attacks and many illusions. Once per day as a standard action, you can cause the lenses to glow with a pale green light, during which time, you can target one creature within 30 feet. The targeted creature must make a DC 15 Fortitude save or be petrified, as if by flesh to stone, for 1d4 minutes.

This gold-plated mask is fashioned to resemble a bunch of snakes. When the Sandpoint Heroes encountered the vampire Xanesha atop the Shadow Clock in Magnimar in Lamashan, 4707, she was wearing this mask, and used its powers against the party.
