Invasions and Quest Gems

Gems originating from invasions and quests other puzzles make up the largest group of non-stolen gems in existence.

Several invasions have yielded gems as prizes, most notably pig and chicken invasions, but also including imp invasions on the Northern Trader Route.

a small golden egg -- chicken invasions, weighs 5 stones
an uncut diamond * -- imp invasions, weight unknown, presumably salable at the gem shop

Volcano Quest: Mibgluc's Revenge

Not to be confused with opals of the same name from nipoh oshu, these are fake gems salable at the pawn shop, not at the gem shop, and were given out as consolation prizes.

I am not as knowledgeable about the Taisidon 1/Taisidon 2 gems as I should be, due to serious problems with my original quest run. Everything I know about these quests, however, is here. The variants on the non-normal treasure gems are listed above; those unique to the quests are here.

Taisidon 1

Early runs had Taisidon Emeralds rather than Taisidon emeralds.

Taisidon 2

a tiny animite nugget
a crystalline dragon tear
a large piece of dark amber
a small blue diamond
a large blue diamond
a huge blue diamond

The Feast of Eluned

The gems from this event are also found at Pirate's Plunder; since Pirate's Plunder has its own set, I'm only listing the pearls here.

Pirate's Plunder

Arguably the best large-scale event up to Corik's Secret, the end treasure of Pirate's Plunder was a grab-bag and given out at random. One of these gifts was a box with several gems in it. Note that the amethyst crystals do *not* have a pin on the back.

a large flawless diamond -- 2 stones
a chunk of blue glass
a small glass marble
a huge emerald
a cluster of amethyst crystals

The Gnome Quest

The Gnome Quest had a decided tendency towards recycling gems and treasure from other sources. Only the gems indigenous to this particular quest are listed here.

a copper-laced quartz
a bronze-laced quartz
a silver-laced quartz
a gold-laced quartz
a platinum-laced quartz
an animite-laced quartz
a shiny gold nugget
a polished jade sphere

Two of the end treasures on this quest were gem collections, complete with carrying case and key. For differentiation purposes, the descriptions of the cases are listed here as well. Please note that some of the gems are in both collections. As for the forging metals, I don't personally consider them gems; however, for completion purposes, I do include them in the sets, and have a specimen of each of those contained in these cases.

These were found in the sandbox as well as the non-normal quest variants.

Taisidon Safari

Taisidon Safari had two sets of gems.

Fang Oysters

Fang oysters are like free underwater Darkbox; they're located in Corsair Lagoon, beneath the elsralael hunting areas, and they bite your hand off if you mess up. Unlike Darkbox, however, is that when you mess up, instead of ranging from cuts and bruises to a severed hand, it *always* severs your hand. Beware, and take an empath or lots of herbs and patience with you. These are also located off of Ratha; however, the generation rate is extremely low and pearls are harvested almost immediately.

Diving Cliff Oysters

Oyster beds lay at the base of the diving cliffs at the north end of the beach, and sometimes held pearls. I have not yet had a chance to test whether or not there are any differences between the black and white pearls and those found on Taisidon or in the regular treasure system or even in fang oysters. However, the grey pearls do not appraise as much as those found either in fang oysters or in the normal treasure system. Those listed in yellow are currently in my possession.
