Gem rocks can be mined through the Mining skill in Shilo Village after a player has completed the Shilo Village quest or in the Lunar Isle mine after Lunar Diplomacy. A Mining level of 40 is required to mine gem rocks, granting 65 Mining experience per gem. The rocks regenerate 100 seconds after being mined. Wearing a charged amulet of glory increases the speed at which gem rocks are mined by approximately 200%.
The Shilo Village mine in the north-west part of the village has two sections: overground and underground. The underground section is only available for players who have completed hard Karamja Diary, and it includes significantly more gem rocks than on the surface as well as a Bank Deposit Chest.
Gem rates[edit | edit source]
When a gem rock is mined, one of the following gems is produced:
|Uncut red topaz||1||15/128||4,047||24|
Taking this into consideration, mining a gem rock is worth 776 on average.
Locations[edit | edit source]
|Lunar Isle mine||4|
|Shilo Village mine||7|
Trivia[edit | edit source]
- When a gem rock is mined, the experience lamp sound will play. This is also the same sound as when a gem is mined from a normal ore rock.
