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]

  • Mining gem rocks
  • Geodes: obtained while mining
  • Purchasing or stealing them from gem shops identified with a red gem Gem shop map icon.png icon on the world map
  • 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
  • From caskets (only the original four gems)

    • Grim gem will no longer equip when checking kills from the bank.
  • patch 23 June 2014 (Update):
    • More than one gemstone golem part can now be traded at once.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Prior to the Mining and Smithing rework, there was an 1/282 chance of obtaining gems from sapphire to diamond by mining any standard rock. It was even possible to mine multiple gems from the same rock.
  • Fletching gems into bolt tips uses the same animation as cutting the uncut gem. Fletching gem bolt tips would incorrectly use the animation of the previous type of bolt tips you make once before being corrected for the rest (e.g. if you have previously fletched emerald bolt tips, then switch to sapphire bolt tips, you will be holding an emerald for the first animation but the rest would show a sapphire correctly).
