Orange Gem is an item used to craft several Ancient items in Don't Starve. It can be used to craft The Lazy Forager, which automatically collects items, and The Lazy Explorer, which teleports the player a short distance across the screen. 

Gathering Edit

Orange Gems are obtained by mining Ancient Statues, destroying Broken Clockworks, breaking certain Relics, opening Ornate Chests, and hammering Ancient Pseudoscience Stations in the Ruins.

Gift Icon Downloadable Content Edit

In the Reign of Giants DLC, Orange Gems have a 0.02% chance to be dropped by Tumbleweeds, making them a renewable resource. In the Shipwrecked DLC, Orange Gems can be found in buried X Marks the Spot treasure chests.

Don't Starve Together icon Don't Starve Together Edit

In Don't Starve Together, the Dragonfly has a chance to drop Orange Gems upon death. Orange Gems can also be gathered in the Caves from Cave Holes using The Lazy Forager, and be inserted into Cratered Moonrocks to acquire a Orange Moonlens.
