The Yellow Gem is an item used to craft Ancient items. It is required in two crafting recipes; Magiluminescence and Star Caller's Staff.

The Magiluminescence is an amulet that emits light, increases movement speed, and provides a Sanity boost when worn.

The Star Caller's Staff summons a Dwarf Star that emits light and heat. It can also be used to Cook Food.

Gathering Edit

Yellow Gems are obtained by mining Ancient Statues, breaking Relics, destroying Broken Clockworks, and opening Ornate Chests.
