This quote refers to the Arkenstone, and Thorin's memories.... he is in a somber, dreamy state, as the dwarves shared their stories.

"The Arkenstone! The Arkenstone!" murmured Thorin in the dark, half dreaming with his chin upon his knees. "It was like a globe with a thousand facets; it shone like silver in the firelight, like water in the sun, like snow under the stars, like rain upon the Moon!"
