Gems

This article is about the (non-cuttable) gems primarily produced from ore and sand mines. See also Cuttable Gems.

Gems are a product (or by-product) of Mining. There are seven known types -- diamond, emerald, quartz, ruby, sapphire, opal, and topaz. Every gem comes in one of four sizes: Small, Medium, Large, and Huge. An individual Mine will produce only one type of gem (determined by location), but the gems produced can be of any size. Naturally, the rarity increases with size.

Occasionally a Water Mine will cough up a gem, although they mainly generate cuttable gems.

Obtaining

Gems (and coal) are acquired when ore nodes in a mine are broken (by being used in 7 workloads). The size of the gem is random. There is some evidence to suggest that when more nodes are broken in the same workload, the gem sizes on average tend to be larger; however, it's still perfectly possible to pull a Huge gem without exploiting this (I have seen no evidence of this at all - Taemon the Mining Nut). Sand mines are thus valuable for gem mining, as it's easy to plan in such a way as to break 5+ nodes at once (assuming there are 5 different colors present in the field). See the Sand Mining Guide for more detailed information.

Locations

Gems geographic distributions have changed since previous tellings. Though the boundaries have not yet been extensively explored, gems appear to correspond to regions.
