Statistics
Type Gem
Max stack 999
A Gemstone Cave, where higher concentrations of Gems can be found.

Gems are valuable materials that can be found in veins underground, embedded in Stone blocks or on the sides of Stone blocks, which will drop the gem when mined. Gems can be placed on any side of blocks after being mined.

Gems can also be found in higher concentrations in rare Gemstone Caves, which can contain multiple Gem types lining their blocks, and have their own unique background wall that cannot be collected or used by players.

Gem rarity is not affected by depth; you will find as many gems near the surface as right above the Underworld. However, gems are far more common in the Underground Jungle. Some gems are less common than others; refer to the list below for each gem's rarity, in descending order.
