Best ore to mine?Edit
The Scrimshaw normally has a higher chance at getting an Onyx the higher level the ore is but I have heard the best ore to mine if strictly seeking exp and gems are Bane ore. I am assuming it is simply due to the fact Bane mines much faster than Rune. Can't confirm this but if anyone else can feel free to post your observations.
Does this work while mining Gem Rocks?Edit
Does the Gem finding Scrimshaw work while mining gem rocks, say the ones in Priff or in Shilo Village? It's not technically mining ore but it also isn't listed among the mining sources that do NOT generate a chance at a gem.

Low Level sampleEdit
Being of just barely a high enough level to use one figured I would use it to provide a good base sample.
I began using my Scrimshaw at level 80 while mining Bane Ore, I would use a Charged Amulet or Glory and Ring of Wealth along with a Laval Titan for the invisible level boost.
Over my 3hrs using a basic scrimshaw I was able to obtain
12 Sapphire valued at 824 each for a total of 9,888
13 Emeralds valued at 1,510 each for a total of 19,630
16 Rubies valued at 2,477 each for a total of 39,152
28 Diamonds valued at 4563 each for a total of 127,764
7 Dragonstones valued at 12,730 each for a total of 89,110
Overall I made 285,544 which amounts to a total loss of 89, 272 at the present GE price for the Scrimshaw which honestly isn't too bad considering the small chance at Onyx.
However not being able to use this Scrimshaw at concentrated Ore is truly its biggest downfall.
