Gems are valuable crafting materials found underground. There are currently 7 gem types. Gems can also be placed on any side of a block after being mined. They are found in any underground layer, except for The Underworld.

Gems are found in the following forms;

Gems can also be found in higher concentrations in rare gemstone caves, which can contain multiple gem types lining and embedded within their Stone Blocks.

On the 3DS version 3DS version, mining gems also has a chance of yielding a Broken Heart during Valentine's Day.

Gemstone cave[edit | edit source]

A Gemstone Cave, where higher concentrations of Gems can be found. Most of these Gems are in placed form, while a few are embedded in Stone.
Two Gemstone Caves, with walls reflecting the Gems found in each

A gemstone cave is a rare, irregularly shaped room often found in the cavern layer. It contains a high concentration of placed gems on multiple stone surfaces, as well as a few gems embedded in stone. Most gemstone caves contain one or two types of gemstone, but can rarely contain three or more types. The type of gem found in such caves is easily identifiable by the Gem Wall the cave utilizes, but this wall cannot be collected to obtain any items.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Caves with Dirt Walls are considered to be within the surface layer and will not contain gems.
  • Gem rarity is not affected by depth; there are as many gems just below the surface as near The Underworld.
  • Gems are less common in the Underground Jungle. Regular non-Jungle underground biomes contain much greater quantities.
  • Making Stained Glass is the most profitable way to sell gems (except on Mobile version Mobile where it is much less valuable).

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The stats of the staffs made from gems are directly related to the value of the gemstone being implemented, with the diamond staff having a higher damage than the amethyst staff.
    • Amber is an exception, being weaker than ruby staffs.
  • In real life, some gemstones and minerals have been used as a dye, with azurite and cinnabar being especially the case. This could be interpreted as the colored robes found in the crafting menu.

History[edit | edit source]

  • Desktop 1.3.1: Inventory, placed, rock and stone sprites updated.
    • Large Amber can now be crafted.
    • Gem Locks can now be crafted.

Footnotes[edit | edit source]

  1. 1.0 1.1 Before 1.4, Amber could not be mined naturally. It could only be obtained from an Extractinator. It can appear in placed form when placed manually by players, but was never found placed naturally until 1.4.0.1 in the underground desert.
