The Time Stone is one of the six Infinity Stones, the remnants of singularities that predate the universe. It has the ability to manipulate time, even in places "beyond" time, such as the Dark Dimension.
It was contained inside the Eye of Agamotto under the protection of the Masters of the Mystic Arts, who swore to protect it. Doctor Strange came across the relic in Wong's library and used it to force a bargain with Dormammu.
Doctor Strange later relinquished the Stone to Thanos in exchange for sparing Iron Man's life.
Stone Color: Green
Original Containment Unit: Eye of Agamotto
When the universe was first born, the Cosmic Entities fashioned the remains of six singularities into concentrated ingots which became known as the Infinity Stones. As indicated by its name, the Time Stone held dominion over the forces of time.
The master sorcerer Agamotto fashioned a containment device to better wield its dangerous power. When Agamotto founded the Masters of the Mystic Arts, usage of the Eye became forbidden, though Cagliostro was permitted to study the artifact and eventually wrote how to control the relic in his book.
The Masters would subsequently swear an oath to protect the Time Stone with their lives.
