The Ore as seen in the menu.

Jewels (宝石, Houseki?) in Final Fantasy IX are items usable for healing HP within battle, and for equipping as add-ons. Jewels can be equipped by anyone, and some teach either Dagger or Eiko summons. Also, in Dagger's case, jewels boost certain summons' attack power, while in Eiko's case, they may change the effect or element of a specific summon's attack.

Friendly monsters[edit | edit source]

On the world map, the party may encounter certain friendly monsters that ask for a particular jewel. After the jewel is given to the friendly enemy, the party is rewarded with AP. Most of the enemies only ask for Ore, but the later ones will request rarer jewels, but will also give rare jewels in return. Starting with the Nymph, the rarer jewels given out are those required by the next friendly enemy in the sequence.

Other appearances[edit | edit source]

Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]

The different gems on Carbuncle's forehead.

Depending on which jewel Eiko has equipped, the eidolon Carbuncle's summon ability changes. This also changes the color of the gem on its head.

The jewels are based on the birthstones. As such, when equipping as an add-on and if the player has all twelve jewels in their inventory (minus Ore), the jewels are listed in the same order as the birthstones where each gemstone represents a month.

The Ruby is the only jewel that does not augment the power of an eidolon.
