Uncut sapphire detail

An Uncut sapphire is a blue gem used in Crafting and Fletching. An uncut sapphire can be cut by a player with level 20 Crafting by using it with a chisel, which makes the uncut sapphire into a sapphire and yields 50 Crafting experience.

Uncut sapphires can be obtained in several ways. Players can get them randomly while mining ores, as drops from monsters or by selecting them as a reward from Random Event gifts. With level 40 Mining and the 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 quick way to get uncut sapphires is Wall safe cracking in the Rogues' Den, but this requires level 50 Thieving. Uncut sapphires can also be found in the King Black Dragon Lair. Uncut sapphires are also a common reward of the Gnome Restaurant minigame and from Managing Miscellania.

With a Divination level of at least 26, 3 uncut sapphires may be transmuted into 1 uncut emerald. This costs 2 bright energy and yields 5.7 Divination experience.

Members can use the Fletching skill to cut a sapphire into sapphire bolt tips by using a chisel on a 'cut' sapphire at level 56 fletching. Cutting a sapphire into bolt tips grants the player 4 experience in the fletching skill and gives the player 12 sapphire bolt tips.

There is a cave to the north-west of Rellekka where up to 8 uncut sapphires can be mined for The Tale of the Muspah quest. These rocks do not respawn.

  • Prior to the introduction of the Grand Exchange, the examine text on uncut stones said 'This would be worth more if it was cut'. However after the Grand Exchange was introduced, such description no longer matched the actual market facts and thus this was changed.
  • Although formally released on 8 May 2001, uncut gems were briefly obtainable following the 17 March 2001 cooking update, before the crafting skill was fully implemented.
