Gemstones are precious rocks usually found underground. They can be sold or used as crafting materials. They come in six varieties, ordered from most abundant to rarest:
- A great way to remember the order of the gems is the acronym A.T.S.E.R.D.
- Gems are more common in the Underground Jungles.
- Gems are also easier to find in the Underground Ice. Here, they can also be found sticking out of blocks making a faint glow.
- Once mined, gems can not be placed again prior to 1.2.
- You need one of each to make the Jungle Armor prior to 1.2.
- As of 1.2 Gems can be used in the creation of the Phaseblades, Colored Torches, Stained Glass, Multicolored Stained Glass, Robes, Staffs, Colored Hooks, and Large Gems.
- As of 1.2, Gems all received a graphical update each with a unique cut.
- Amber is a similar material to gemstones, however it is not found naturally underground. It must instead be extracted from silt or slush.
