Once you’ve got access to either the Forest Of Valor or the Glade Of Trust, you’ll need to look along the walls for tall black rocks and smash them with your pickaxe for a small chance of earning an Emerald.

It’s never guaranteed that you’ll get an Emerald but these rocks do respawn after around five minutes, so a good plan is to keep traveling between the two locations and mining until you find what you need.

Another great way to farm Emeralds is to hang out with a character who has the mining role. You can check which role you assigned to each character by looking at the Collection tab after pausing the game.

To hang out with a character, simply find them on the map, begin a conversation, and select the ‘hang out’ option. They’ll follow you around and occasionally boost your haul when you mine for gems!

If you need Emeralds to complete a quest in the game, it’s worth pointing out that Shiny Emeralds won’t qualify despite being much rarer. Your best option is to sell these as they’re worth a lot of Star Coins.
