So much fear and doubt over so small a thing...

A secret only fire can tell... (2 variations)

'To Frodo's astonishment and distress the wizard threw it suddenly into the middle of a glowing corner of the fire.  Frodo gave a cry and groped for the tongs; but the wizard held him back...No apparent change came over the ring...The room grew dark and silent...then he stooped and removed the ring to the hearth with the tongs, and at once picked it up.  Frodo gasped.'

Chapter II The Shadow of the Past p49-50
