A zenyte, the highest level gem.

Gems can be obtained from Mining, as a frequent drop from a wide range of monsters via part of the rare drop table, occasionally given out as gifts from various random events, or from trading with other players. Some gems can be purchased or sold (or stolen) at a gem shop identified with a red gem icon on the map (Gem shop icon.png).

Using the Crafting skill, gems can be cut and made into jewellery and then enchanted using the Magic skill. Gems can also be cut into gem bolt tips.

The chance of mining a gem from most ore rocks or Motherlode Mine ore veins is 1/256. Wearing a charged amulet of glory increases a player's chances of finding gems from mining to 1/86.

It may be worth noting that the gems found randomly whilst mining most ores do not grant any mining experience. However, this is not the case with gems mined from the gem rocks in the northwest corner of Shilo Village.
