Guide is calculated based on 750 gems per hour.

Mining gems in Shilo Village Mine with Karamja gloves 3 or 4 and a Dragon pickaxe can be very profitable. Players can bank in the conveniently located Bank Deposit Chest. All in all, players can average up to 300-750 gems an hour and get roughly between 228,297.45 and 570,743.63 profit predicated on levels, efficiency, and luck.

If a player has obtained the gem bag from the Motherlode Mine they can use it to save inventory space by storing standard uncut gems. This can be combined with fletching uncut opal and uncut jade into bolt tips, leaving the remaining 24 inventory spaces to be filled with uncut red topaz, maximising profit in the above ground mine.  

Players who have completed the Hard Karamja Diary may wear the Karamja gloves 3 to gain access to the underground portion of the gem mine, which has an additional 48 gem rocks, and a Bank Deposit Chest.
