Spirit Gems are items in Phantom Hourglass.[1]

Location and Uses

Spirit Gems are hidden and can be found by opening Treasure Chests, solving puzzles, purchasing, checking the mail, or completing certain events. There are three in total: Power, Wisdom, and Courage, and each has a different effect depending on which Servant Spirit is equipped, and of those there are 20 total Spirit Gems of each version to collect over the expanse of the World of the Ocean King.

For the Spirit Gems to have any effect, they must first be taken to Spirit Island. When Link collects ten of a certain Spirit Gem type, he sees an ability enhancement on the part of his Sword or in his physical skill set,[1] however, upon collecting all 20, Link is upgraded with the full extent of the Servant Spirit's power.
