[Mining] Mining Jewels?

I can't set my shovel to mine jewels.

1. Where is the book, I can't find info online.
2. Will I mine crystal blackrock in Termur without jewels active?

you can't mine jewels
you must be GM to get big gems
you need to buy and read a book in Ter Mur to mine small gems

there is no settings like 'mine gems' (two options are 'ore' and 'stone and ore')

the best way to get CB is to kill ore elementals

As CorwinXX said, you'd probably get more CB from digging with gargoyle pickaxes and killing the spawned elementals (don't know if the naturally spawning Dull Copper and Shadow elementals have them), but I THINK you can get some from regular mining in Ter Mur (only) at GM mining.

I'm still trying to shake the cobwebs out (family issues caused me almost 2 years of minimal play), but I think that was how it worked.

Are there not 3 options with a pick-axe if you have Stagian Abyss??

Regular just ore
Mine Stone and Ore
Mine Gems and Ore?

The gems and ore setting is for chances at the small gems you can purchase from the an NPC?

... If you need crystalline blackrock, hit the golden elemental room at Blackthorn.
You will get more than you can use there.

The drop rate of CB at Ter Mur with GM mining is abysmal. :(

Edit:
Also, if you need small gems, they drop 2 per kill. You can gather a rather nice amount out of them.

Yes, I always have those three options available when I mine. Reading the book enables you to mine small gems along with ore.
