The shop's front tells the tales of what is sold within; huge pieces of petrified wood, too heavy for any man to carry, decorate the outside of the shop. The walls are made of stone slabs, still somewhat rough and bumpy. It looks like the shop is made almost entirely out of things you could find in, well, "The Underground".
Just inside the door, shiny stones like crystals hang from the ceiling, collecting light and playing it across the walls in miniature rainbows. Stones of all shapes and sizes sit on the floor, and upon shelves scattered about the store. Glass cases display beautiful gems and jewelry of all colors, dazzling the eyes. The shelves and counter tops are made of different kinds of stone, some more roughly cut others. There are many varieties of marble and other attractive stone.
Pets: Any mining creatures of reasonable size are allowed in the Underground.

So far, there are three shops which deal in gemstones in addition to credits. Those shops are: The Veil, The Heavy Hammer, and us (The Underground).
This is a basic guide for how much each gem is worth in those shops. Each gem has a base price, and a fluctuating worth depending on the individual gem. Be sure you agree with the shopkeeper's price before selling your gem!
We suggest you turn in your gems here at the Underground - other shops may not give you such great value for your stones! (The Underground is the only shop that will give you pure credits for your gems.)
5 Credits + 4-sided die Each Jade Copper Onyx Moss Agate / Agate Jasper Tin
10 Credits + 4-sided die Each Pyrite Azurite Hematite Charolite Amber (empty) Zinc Tiger Eye
15 Credits + 4-sided die Each Chrysacola Crabfire Agate Sodalite Fluorite / Rainbow Fluorite Labradite Apatite
20 Credits + 4-sided die Each Turquoise Lava Rock Garnet Aventurine Amethyst Marble Bronzite
20 Credits + 6-sided die Each Rhodonite Multigems Lapis Smokey Topaz Quartz Topaz Serpentine
25 Credits + 6-sided die Each Malachite Aquamarine Cherry Quartz Fossils Rose Quartz Heliotrope Citrine
30 Credits + 6-sided die Each Chalcedony Carnelian Malachite Sapphire Tanzanite Crystal
35 Credits + 6-sided die Each Sunstone Smokey Quartz Ruby Silver Emerald Iron
40 Credits + 10-sided die Each Starstone Gold Amber (full) Paridot Elemental Crystals (fire, water, earth, air)
40 Credits + 20-sided die Each Alaxandrite Diamond Starstone Opal Moonstone Titanium
50 Credits + 20-sided die Each Divine Crystals (chaos, order, tainted, pure)
Due to the great need of raw materials (such as iron, copper, gold, and silver) in the Gemstone Workshop, we here are the Underground are perfectly willing to trade gems for metal ingots!
Ingots are easier to carry around than all those ores, but they still contain enough material for one amulet or ring base.
How do you exchange gems for ingots, you ask? Ingots are worth a certain amount of 'points', just like gems are worth credits. When you want to exchange the two, you'll have to match the ingots' worth in points with your gems' total worth in credits.
Beware, you won't get credits back if you buy less than your gems are worth. If your gem is worth 15 credits and you buy one Bronze Ingot for 10 points, you'll just lose the last 5 'credits'. Sometimes it might be better to spend those leftover 'credits' on an extra ingot and sell it afterwards.
