Gems! Gems everywhere! This mod adds a ton of new gems to the game that can all be crafted into new tools, armor, and even colored glass!


You’ll now be able to craft armor from Emeralds but you’ll also be able to utilize new gems like rubies, amethyst, sapphires, and onyx, amongst many, many others.


Tools are all relatively similar to what you’re used to in terms of crafting but they all have different specs and durabilities. Below is a chart to help differentiate between each gem and what they may be worth to you. So not only will you have aesthetic options but you can even craft based on strength and health.



If you’d like to craft colored glass from these gems, just smelt the gem into dust, combine it with sand, and then smelt that into glass.




If you’ve ever wanted more precious gems from Minecraft then this mod more than has you covered. This would also be a fantastic resource for currency systems in multiplayer servers.

  1. This mod is awesome, but I’m having an issue in multiplayer where Phoenixite armor crashes the game when you try to wear it, and then the person wearing it can not rejoin as the server apparently can not render the armor…. how do I fix this?

  2. Are you able to find the gems naturally? Like, not in creative mode?

  3. what is the best of them all?

    • The best one is ruby and sapphire. This is clearly the best gem in this mod because they have the most durability and the most enchantability. Efficiency doesn’t matter as much because it would run out faster. Damage also doesn’t matter as much because you can just use an existing ore axe or sword to deal much more damage. Depth doesn’t matter at ALL. It will matter more if you just like the looks of it. (This is just my opinion)

      Hopefully, this helps!
