A Gemstone is a small item with no useful abilities on its own, but incredibly valuable. Gemstones in the Geneforge Series are all green in appearance. Gemstones are prized amongst all merchants who will buy them for a high price.


While Gemstones lack any abilities, people still use them. One, of course, is making jewelry, such as the necklace of Shanti. Another, much more practical use would be in the creation of magical supplies. All crystal weaponry requires the use of a gemstone. In addition, a wand requires a gemstone, a Stick as a base, and one or more special ingredients to infuse power.
