Gemstones, or Gems, are any of countless varieties of precious stones valued by the peoples of the Mortal Realms.[1a][2a][3a][4a]

Creation

Most gems originate from minerals that have been dug up from the Realms. Mineral gemstones occur naturally as a result of the pressure created by subterranean strata. These minerals are then cut and fashioned into pleasing shapes and are often fashioned into trinkets, such as jewellery.[1b][2a][3a][4a][5a]

The Prime Innerlands of the Realm of Shyish were known to have an abundance of mineral veins containing gemstones in the Age of Myth.

As Currency

All manner of different genes are used all across the Mortal Realms as currency, especially in the Free Cities of Sigmar's Empire. [7a][19a]
