The Sacred Chalice of Rixx was a chalice of historical importance to the people of Betazed.

In the 24th century the chalice was in the possession of the Fifth House of Betazed. Lwaxana Troi would quite frequently remind people that she was the holder of the chalice, in addition to being a daughter of the Fifth House and heir to the Holy Rings of Betazed. (TNG episodes: "Haven", "Half a Life", DS9 episode: "The Forsaken")

Her daughter Deanna Troi once commented that the chalice was an old clay pot with mold growing within. Even Lwaxana did not truly consider the chalice to be of any particular importance. She only busied herself with what she called a dusty old clay pot and the many other traditions of Betazed so that she would not have to dwell on the very real possibility that Deanna would die before she did. (TNG episode: "Ménage à Troi", TNG novel: Q-in-Law)

The Sacred Chalice of Rixx, along with the Holy Rings of Betazed, were kept at the Troi estate on Betazed. During the Dominion War the planet Betazed was invaded and conquered by the Dominion. Both items were destroyed when the Troi estate was demolished during the invasion. (ST - Tales of the Dominion War short story: "The Ceremony of Innocence is Drowned")
