There is nothing that can move in the cryogenic world. I can freeze anything in the universe!

—Ghiaccio

White Album (ホワイト・アルバム Howaito Arubamu) is the Stand of Ghiaccio, featured in Vento Aureo.

Appearance

White Album takes the form of a light-colored suit, covering nearly all of Ghiaccio's body; the only unprotected area is a small opening at the back of his neck allowing air flow.

Its head bears two short cones, positioned somewhat like cat ears. It has a spiral at its forehead, which along with its cheeks pushes a clear visor into a Y-shaped fork, showing only Ghiaccio's eyes, nose and mouth.

Its feet stand on long blades, in the style of ice skates (or speed skates).

Abilities

White Album is rare among Stands in that it appears as a suit for Ghiaccio to wear[3]. Protecting its user from harm and giving him the potent ability to freeze everything, White Album is a fearsome Stand in battle.

Thankfully, White Album possesses a weak point in the form of a vulnerable hole at Ghiaccio's neck.

Cryogenic Cold

White Album's signature ability is to dramatically decrease the temperature of anything Ghiaccio touches.

When the assassin touches something, the affected object's temperature decreases dramatically. White Album's power is so powerful it can reach temperatures of about -100 °C easily[3], freeze gasoline[4], and rapidly create a large quantity of ice out of sea water (faster than someone could swim)[5]. Naturally, the cold is dangerous to the human body: White Album can freeze people, dropping the temperature to the point vital functions are threatened[3] and can solidify limbs to the point they can break like ice[4][5].

As White Album drops the temperature, so does the ability of objects to move. At low enough temperatures, Ghiaccio can simply stop attacks in their tracks, making conventional attacks like gun shots or punches ineffective[3][6].

Ghiaccio can also precisely control his power. He can form specific shapes of ice such as blades to ice skate on[4] or redirect the freezing of a large body of water[5]. Moreover, if he cancels White Album's freezing willingly, the previously affected objects immediately return to their normal temperature[5]. If Ghiaccio stops contact with a frozen object, it will return to its normal temperature[3].

Ice Armor

White Album can solidify the moisture surrounding him into an armor of ice[4].

The armor is invulnerable to bullets[4] as it stops their movement long before they fully penetrate, and is at least strong enough to withstand Gold Experience's punches[4]. However, a massive enough object like a large screw bolt can pierce through it[7] and if Ghiaccio trips on something sharp, his armor's weight is enough to push the sharp object through the layers and threaten Ghiaccio's life[6].

White Album also enhances the physical abilities of its user. With the armor, Ghiaccio becomes strong enough to break a stone statue with a single punch[8] or can skate so fast he's easily able to reach a car running at 80 km/h[4]. Like an igloo, the inside of the armor is kept insulated, meaning he is always warm[9].

The only opening in the armor is an airhole on the back of the user's neck, making it the Stand's greatest weak spot[7]. However, Ghiaccio mitigates this by incorporating chunks of frozen air inside his armor as reserve and defrosting the air as he needs it, thus free to seal the airhole[6].

White Album Gently Weeps

White Album can decrease the temperature to reach -210°C or less, at which point the surrounding air itself freezes solid. With this technique, Ghiaccio is able to create floating sheets of invisible frozen air that are able to reflect bullets back to an attacker[8]. The two downsides of this ability is that it burns through Ghiaccio's stamina[8] and it doesn't perfectly cover Ghiaccio's body: if exposed, Sex Pistols can guide their bullets through the frozen air sheets to hit Ghiaccio directly[6].
