Uncut gems.

An Uncut Gem is a gem that hasn't been cut. You can get these from mining ores or random events. Uncut gems are also a frequent drop from a different variety of different monsters. Generally sapphires, emeralds, rubies or diamonds are dropped by monsters, or are given away at random events. Most of the time when you get gems, they will be uncut. This way, you can cut them to get Crafting experience.

Uncut gems can be mined from the Gem Rock in the north-west corner of Shilo Village, Lunar Isle Mine and sometimes in Tai Bwo Wannai Cleanup minigame. You can only mine gems in a member's worlds. It is also possible to steal gems from the safes in the Rogue's den.

Uncut and cut gems can be purchased, stolen, or sold at a gem shop. They can be identified with a red gem File:Gemshopicon.PNG icon on the World Map. There is one in Al-Kharid and one in Falador.

  • Uncut gems used to have the examine text "It would be worth more cut" but it was changed since uncut gems are generally worth more than cut ones.
  • You need a higher crafting experience to cut ruby than sapphire, but in real life, ruby and sapphire just are both different varieties of corundum.
  • All gems are cut with a chisel. However, in real life some of the gems (such as diamonds) are the hardest materials and can only be cut by another diamond.
