Bag full of gems detail.png

A bag full of gems is obtainable from Prospector Percy's Nugget Shop for 40 golden nuggets, from Belona's Mining Guild Mineral Exchange for 20 unidentified minerals, or from Dusuri's Star Shop for 300 stardust. Each bag contains an assortment of 40 noted uncut gems.

The chances of an individual gem being an uncut onyx is 1/100,000,000, making the chance per bag approximately 1/2,500,000. In terms of probability, this makes it the rarest drop in the game.[1]

The bags are exclusive to the stores they are bought from and therefore cannot be sold to another store in exchange for a different currency.

Percentages[edit | edit source]

The probabilities in this section are an estimation based on the data of opening 1,916 bags full of gems, totalling 76,640 uncut gems being obtained.

According to these estimates (excluding an uncut onyx), a bag would be expected to be around 27,779.24 value of gems on average, making a golden nugget worth 694.48, and a Stardust worth 92.6. The uncut onyx adds just 0.06 coins per bag due to its rarity.

Comparatively, the price of soft clay is currently 186, making each soft clay pack worth 18,600 and each golden nugget worth 1,860.
