Gems are obtained from mining, trading with other players, and as occasional monster drops. Using the Crafting skill, uncut gems can be cut, combined with precious metals to make jewellery and then enchanted using the Magic skill. Gems can also be cut into gem bolt tips. Gems up to diamond were previously rewards from the removed random events, but still remain as common rewards from Treasure Hunter.

Obtaining gems[edit | edit source]

  • Monster drops: the statues in Bandos's throne room frequently drop cut gems from sapphire through diamond, making the room popular for some gem hunters who can kill the statues easily. Completion of The Chosen Commander is required for access to the throne room
  • Purchasing or stealing them from gem shops identified with a red gem Gem shop map icon.png icon on the world map
  • Mining gem rocks
  • Geodes: obtained while mining
