    I'm working on another area of my rares collection and this one i know very little about (except that they exist).

    Does anyone know how many different types of uncut gems are out there and where they came from?

    There is a group of gems from the Veteran Reward Gem Cart that are a different graphic than the NPC gems. Many don't realize this and buy them as "rare".

    *adds to her to do list: make a graphic of mining cart gems*

    Well they used to. Mind you I haven't tested it lately, but I remember at least the amethysts, citrine and sapphire used to be larger versions. I'll see if I can double check mine that when I get time. EA might have fixed it, but it was a big hullabaloo when Imbuing game out because the ones from the mining cart weren't recognized as gems.

    Until it can be tested, I'd say use caution on buying any types in that thread as I'm sure some stock piled them unless EA reverted the graphic entirely.
