    Does anyone have some data or an overall estimate of how many swings per gem

    I've not done any official data, but typically on a dig with a human miner, using 8 gargoyle picks and 1 sturdy tool (900-1000 digs) I get 5-10 gems.

    Some days using only a shovel and digging for about a hour I can get about four gems and on other days I will get nothing, this is in caves in Malas and a Human miner. :)
