How to Get Gems in Nightingale

Craig Robinson

Gems are one of the earliest types of materials you’ll need to gather in Nightingale. When you start structuring your early game base, you’ll need to create Glass to assist the player with basic crafts and building pieces. Here’s a closer look at how to get Gems in Nightingale to assist you with early game crafting, along with tips on finding better gem materials as you progress.

Players can find gems in Nightingale’s early game in their starting biome by finding stone blocks with crystals around boulders and hillsides. This grants you Quartz, the early game gem-type resource that can be mined.

Where to Find Cut Gems in Nightingale

Gems are a type of gatherable material in Nightingale, which takes the form of several resources. In the early game, the best way to get Gems is to mine Quartz nodes, requiring a crude pickaxe to mine. You can find Quartz blocks all over the Abeyance realms, often found near rocky and hilly areas of the maps. The Forest, Desert and Swamp areas should have a few rocky or hillside areas to mine. Look for the rocks with the gem-like deposits inside or sticking out of the rock, and you’ll find Quartz.

Sapphires and Rubies From Chests

In addition, players can also find uncut sapphires and rubies from looting chests around POIs. These can be smelted down into gems at your crafting stations, and increase the item level of the glass or other items that require gems to craft. You should ideally save these items for later, but if you’re in need, feel free to craft the item using them.

Mine Amber with the Pickaxe

When you get your hands on a simple pickaxe, you should now be in a position to start mining Amber. Amber is often found inside caves, which are randomly generated around large hillsides. The mouths of caves often face bodies of water, so it is something you should keep in mind if you’re in the Swamp or Forest Biomes. Deserts often have large bluffs, so you should be able to spot cave mouths from a considerable distance away. You can also get Coal, Shimmering Ore, Sulfur and Magnesium from caves to assist your resource variety as you progress.

It is worth noting that as you progress through the cave, you’ll want to use different tiers of gem materials. You’ll want to get higher tier items to increase the item level of your crafts, helping you to improve the strength of your items. In addition, each type of gem grants different buffs. Amber grants a decent amount of crit, while sapphires and rubies alter ice and fire damage resistance, so it’s something to consider when crafting items with your gems as you complete builds.

This concludes everything you need to know about Gems in Nightingale. Good luck with your gem gathering and improving your crafting as time goes on.

Nightingale is a PvE open-world survival crafting game with a few unique features for the genre. First among these is the Realm Card system, whereby players can discover and craft Major or Minor realm cards to influence aspects of procedurally generated worlds or character attributes respectively. You may find yourself in a more forgiving or hostile world depending on the Major cards you use, but the Minor cards can give you an edge against foes with boosts to damage, health, stamina, or other aspects of survival. The game is set in the Victorian era and has more than a little influence from Steampunk fiction, so if that’s anything like your thing, you’ll love this world!
