Rare Jewels are a set of rares that can be found throughout the Spore galaxy. Like all other sets of rares and artifacts, they are randomly scattered, meaning that there is generally no way of knowing or predicting where they will end up in any specific game.
The combined value of the Rare Jewels is $450,000. However, if you have all of them in your cargo hold at the same time, the set will sell for $4,500,000 instead.
Purple-ish Gems of Rabban AnkottEdit
"The historic significance of these particular gems is that they were ordered by the Twelfth King, Rabban Ankott for his wife, The Seventh Wife of Rabban Ankott. The acquisition of these gems led directly to the arrival of the Eighth Wife of Rabban Ankott, as purple-ish was the favorite color of the Fifth Wife of Rabban Ankott, not the Seventh."
"These gems are so named because of their tangerine color and their diamond-like shape. Unfortunately, they taste awful and aren't nearly as valuable as diamonds."
"This piece of mysterious substance is 100 percent Amethyst."
"This rare gem is noteworthy due to is brilliant shade of green. We are tempted to say that this green gem is far more beautiful than even emeralds, but that would be silly, because this is an emerald."
"A wise man once said: "Just find the Jade, and You've Got it Made!" Congratulations! You should be very proud."
"This beautiful blue artifact is known as Lapis Lazuli. Creatures have toiled vigorously and tirelessly throughout the galaxy to mine this semi-precious stone for over 6500 years. You came along and just found one lying there."
"My ex-fiance once told me that giving your significant other an opal as a gift spelled certain doom for the relationship. I guess she was right. I recommend holding on to this for yourself."
"Great! You found the rubies! Only 24,000,000 more and you can make yourself a pair of slippers so you can go home."
Note: The in game graphic for Rubies is cyan colored. This appears to be an error overlooked by Maxis.
Extra note: The description is an obvious reference to The Wizard of Oz, in which Dorothy has to put on a pair of ruby-covered slippers and repeat the phrase "There's no place like home!" several times to return home.
"This rare jewel is made of sapphire, which is one of the hardest of gem varieties. It is used in creating such Items as infrared optical equipment, watch crystals and high-durability windows. So, scientifically speaking, don't put it in your mouth."
Note: The collector's icon appears to share the same icon as Lapis Lazuli.
"Turquoise is an opaque, blue-to-green mineral that is a hydrous phosphate of copper and aluminum, with the chemical formula CuAl6(PO4)4(OH)8·4H2O."
