Gemstones in Ores
Quartz is a very common mineral that can be found in large deposits at nearly all heights. It sometimes houses gold and silver, and is used in the creation of both Lanterns and Glass. While Mining quartz ore blocks, players will receive Quartz Chunks as well as a few bits of Clear Quartz. The latter can be used to craft Glass and Lanterns without the need to smelt the bits in a bloomery, unlike the Quartz Chunks which can only be processed into clear glass through smelting.
Olivine is a mineral primarily found underground and is used in the creation of Green Glass.
Olivine is only found in peridotite.
Crystallized Gemstones in Vugs
Vugs describe small "geode" type structures that can generate inside of quartz & olivine veins. Inside of them are crystals, ranging in size from small to large, which can be broken down into item crystals (done by crafting the block crystals with a hammer) to be used in Glassmaking. Vugs are the only way to make Pink Glass and Smoky Glass, as they are the only source of Rose Quartz and Smoky Quartz.
In addition to coming in an ore form, Olivine vugs can be found that include large olivine crystals that function the same as the other crystals do.
Smoky Quartz crystals can be broken into Smoky Quartz, and used to make Smoky Glass.
Rose Quartz crystals can be broken into Rose Quartz, and are used to make Pink Glass.
Amethyst crystals can be broken into Amethyst, and are used to make Violet Glass.
Gems do not currently have a use outside of Trading.
Peridot is found in peridotite.
