Gemstone armour is a set of level 80 all-class armour released on 3 April 2017. Pieces of this set can be obtained as drops from dragonstone dragons, onyx dragons, and hydrix dragons.

Uncut dragonstones, onyx, or hydrix gems can be used to add charges to the armour of the respective enchanted dragonstone, onyx, or ascendri bolt effects. Wearing the full outfit provides the same effects as the enchanted bolts, with the same activation chance. Players will start receiving the effect with a minimum of three different pieces equipped, which provides the bolt effects at 40% of the base frequency. A fourth armour piece increases this chance to 70% of the base frequency, with the fifth bringing it to 100% (i.e. the original bolt effect activation chance).

The set effect can activate regardless of the weapon(s) equipped, it is not limited to Range-only. Melee and Magic both benefit from the set effect as well.
