An Eth rune is a low tier rune that can be socketed into armor and weapons in Diablo 2: Lord of Destruction and Diablo 2 Resurrected. An Eth rune provides Regenerate Mana 15% when inserted in shields or off-hands, body armor and headgear, and -25% Target Defense in weapons.
You can cube 3 Nef runes together to get an Eth rune. You can also obtain an Eth rune from normal countess. You can get an Eth rune from the normal hellforge quest.
An Eth rune requires level 15 to use. When you socket an item with an Eth rune, you increase the level requirement to level 15, unless it was already higher.
