I find a rare hand cannon that looks like it was carved from the dark heart of one of the cracked moons
. It feels good in my hand, and glows like starlight when I prime its magazine.
I am instantly and totally in love.

Thorn is the name of an exotic hand cannon. Although its nature is largely unknown, the weapon is stated to glow when the hammer is primed.
Thorn was briefly described to media at the Reveal Press Conference as a reward for completing a mission at Charlemagne's Vault and concept art was shown on a slide at Bungie's GDC 2013 panel.
No further information has been made available by Bungie.
