An uncut emerald is a light green gem used in crafting. An uncut emerald can be cut by a player with 27 Crafting by using it with a chisel, granting 67.5 Crafting experience and making the Uncut emerald into an emerald.
Emeralds can be obtained in several ways. Players can get them randomly while mining ores, or as drops from monsters. With level 40 mining and Shilo Village quest completed players can mine the gem rocks in Shilo Village. Gem rocks may also appear while playing the Tai Bwo Wannai Cleanup minigame, where players can mine them 3 times. A slow way to obtain uncut emeralds is Wall safe cracking in Rogue's Den, but this requires level 50 thieving.
Emeralds may be sold to the Gem Store in Falador west of the castle, or to the gem traders in Keldagrim, Al-Kharid, and Ardougne. The TzHaar gem trader carries one uncut emerald in inventory and will sell it for 75 Tokkul.
Members can also use the Fletching skill to cut an emerald into emerald bolt tips by using a chisel on a 'cut' emerald at level 58 fletching. Cutting an emerald into bolt tips grants the player 5 experience in the fletching skill and gives the player 12 emerald bolt tips.
Uncut gems sell at a higher price than cut gems on the Grand Exchange.
