How to get Gems in Disney Dreamlight Valley
The main way to find Gems in Disney Dreamlight Valley is to look for tall black rocks emerging from the cliffs around your town. If you hit these with your pickaxe until they break, there’s a slight chance that you’ll get a Gem as a reward.
Some of these tall black rocks have Gems sticking out of them from the start, which means they’re guaranteed to provide a Gem when broken. Others won’t reveal that they have Gems inside until you’ve hit them a couple of times with your royal pickaxe.

The easiest way to increase your Gem haul is to give a character the mining trait when you level up your friendship with them. If you then invite them to ‘hang out’ with you, they’ll occasionally boost the number of Gems you earn when breaking rocks!

As you can see from the table above, each type of Gem has an even rarer ‘shiny’ variation which glows stronger and can be sold for an average of four times the amount of Star Coins. You’ll find them in the same locations as their regular variations.
Some quests will require you to find a specific type of Gem, so it’s a good idea to keep at least one of each type safely in your storage. That way, when you come across these quests, you won’t have to spend ages mining to find a certain Gem.
