A Purple Gem is a refined item used to craft several Magic items. It requires a Prestihatitator to prototype, and costs 1 Red Gem and 1 Blue Gem to craft.

Purple Gems can be obtained by mining Ancient Statues, destroying Broken Clockworks, opening Ornate Chests, or as a drop from both variants of the Clockwork Bishop. Maxwell starts out with a Purple Gem in his inventory.

Purple Gems are used to craft the Shadow Manipulator, Bat Bat, Telelocator Staff, and Nightmare Amulet. Three Purple Gems must be installed in a Telelocator Focus before it will function, and they will be consumed when the Telelocator Focus is used.

Gift Icon Downloadable Content Edit

In the Reign of Giants DLC, the Purple Gem has a 0.01% chance to be dropped by Tumbleweeds.

In the Shipwrecked DLC, fishing with a Trawl Net in Deep Ocean has a small chance to catch a Purple Gem. The chance is higher during Hurricane Season and Dry Season. X Marks the Spot treasure chests occasionally contain a Purple Gem. Additionally, the Slot Machine has a small chance to yield 3 Purple Gems as a possible reward. Purple Gems are used to craft the Howling Conch.

Don't Starve Together icon Don't Starve TogetherEdit

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

Prototype TipsEdit

  • Thanks to periodic Hound waves, purple gems are renewable, even in the base game, as both Red Hounds and Blue Hounds drop Red and Blue Gems, respectively.
    • Since the July 30th, 2015 update, they are also renewable by fishing up Sea Worthers, Toy Boats, and Sextants from flotsam and trading them to Wolly for Purple, Blue, and Red gems, respectively.
