Royal Forge of Icewell Precious Gem Study V.1 ----------------------
Now that the armor is created, you are now able to set a gem within it. We have found three gems that, when faceted, will seem to add an aura that radiates from the armor.
It is our firm believe that Brell himself is pleased with the fusion of Ore and Mineral and bestows powers unto the armor.
We have discovered three different gems that can be used in the process of creating this armor: Diamonds, Emeralds, and Sapphires. These are not
normal gems that circulate throughout the economy, though. These are instead pulled from the raw ore and faceted to draw upon it's powers.
To facet an unrefined gem, you will first need to obtain a set of etching tools, which will allow you to chip away, carefully of
course, at the rough edges of the gem. To begin, first place the gem firmly into your jewelry kit and chip away at each side until a nice, smooth edge is formed. When you have finished with the lapidary, place the piece of armor you wish to work on in your jewelry kit.
Use your etching tools to form a base for the gem to be set in. Once this base has been formed, you are then ready to attach the gem to the armor. The optimum gem-armor configuration has been discovered as follows:
Diamonds for the Breastplate and Greaves,
Sapphires for the Vambraces and Bracers, and Emeralds for the Boots, Gauntlets, and Helmets.
