That little cutscene isn't all that important, but the fact that it's missing could be a sign of an important glitch. Make sure you wander around the area and look at everything, to see if it triggers. Do you get the meeting with the werewolf? If you don't, you might want to restore from a previous save and see if it works when you get to that point again.
Sometimes Witcher saved games become glitched for no apparent reason, and going back to a previous save fixes the problem.
Sometimes the game itself got glitched during installation, and you need to uninstall and reinstall the game to fix it.
So try restoring from a previous save. If that doesn't work, move your saved game to your desktop, uninstall the game, then reinstall the game, move your saved game back to the saves folder, and then try it.

The power stone is important, so it's probably the one they're talking about. The quest log asks for a "Magic Stone" in the phase title, which is sort of weird, since everywhere else, it's called a "power stone."
It sounds to me like what you need to do is uninstall The Witcher, then reinstall it. Do you have a disc that came in a box, or did you get it from Steam or GOG or some other digital store? If you have a digital download, make sure to verify your files before you install the game again; if the installation file got munged during download, it won't do you any good to install the same broken file, and you'll need to re-download.
Good luck, and let me know what the results of re-installing are.

I'm glad you've gotten unstuck!
I apologize for forgetting about the seeing stone. But I did tell you that you hadn't gotten the Magic Stone journal update, and you said you looked for another stone and didn't find one, so I guess we share the blame on this one.
The next time you get stuck, hold down the Alt key (or turn on Show Object Names in the Options menu), so you can easily check to make sure that you've taken everything you're supposed to take.
If you just want to check once in awhile, the Alt key will do it. If you'd like to have object names turned on all the time, choose Options from the main menu, choose the Game Options tab, then check the Show Object Names box.
Here's that Salamandra Hideout withOUT object names on:
And here it is WITH object names on, showing that seeing stone:
