Gemstones are a currency in Children of Morta, alongside Morv. Unlike Morv, they are lost when the player's health reaches zero and the run ends. They may be gained from corpses, or from defeating ferocious enemies.
Leveling up Lucy can provide the benefit of player starting with 1 or 2 gem stones.
Book of Rhea can upgrade the drop chance for gemstones.
