Location and Uses
Gems are valuable Materials that can be used to upgrade Armor, craft new gear, or be sold at a high price to shops and merchants. Gems are generally found by breaking Ore Deposits, with Rare Ore Deposits more likely to yield rarer varieties. Gems include Amber, Diamond, Opal, Ruby, Sapphire and Topaz. Gems can also sometimes be found inside Treasure Chests, as well as dropped by Stone Taluses and Stone Pebblits. After Pelison moves to Tarrey Town, he will open a stall there that sells a few Gems at a high price.
The gems that sometimes drop when you break ore deposits fetch a high price when sold." — Tip (Breath of the Wild)
- "I also buy all sorts of things, if you're in need of rupees. Gemstones in particular fetch a high price!" — Beedle (Breath of the Wild)
- "I need to procure other jewels too, so keep bringing me what you find. Bring me 10 at a time, got it? As for what kinds of jewels I want to buy, well... That's likely to change every once in a while." — Ramella (Breath of the Wild)
