- What to Do with Aquamarine
In Stardew Valley, Aquamarine is classified as a Mineral, belonging to the group of six common gems. Despite being necessary for just one non-vital recipe, Aquamarine remains a sought-after resource for many players, particularly those dedicated to the Gemologist Profession. This guide is designed to assist you in locating more Aquamarine and provides tips on efficient farming and optimal usage.
Stardew Valley: How to Setup a Tree Farm
A tree farm can be a useful way to get foraging resources without having to trek halfway across Stardew Valley.
Where to Find Aquamarine
To find Aquamarines, you must descend to the 40th Floor of the Mines. The Nodes show up after this level, and you will have the opportunity to mine them as you continue down the path toward the bottom of the Mines. Those persevering to reach the deepest floor may later encounter Aquamarines in the Garbage Can, although the odds are relatively low.
Best Ways to Get Aquamarine
Other than breaking Aquamarine Nodes, the alternative methods for getting this gemstone are mining Gem Nodes, looting Dwarvish Sentries, collecting Fishing Treasure Chests, and panning at waterways.
Gem Nodes randomly give one of the six common gems. But they are an excellent way of collecting Aquamarine as you find them on any of the Mine Floors.
Dwarvish Sentry Drops
Dwarvish Sentries have a 10% chance of dropping Aquamarine. You can find these enemies in the Volcano Dungeon and farm them for extra gemstones.
Fishing Treasure Chests
4% of the time, the Treasure Chests you retrieve from the water grant Aquamarines. Keep an eye out for the box icon in the fishing gauge, and when spotted, employ the same technique as you would when reeling in a fish to secure the treasure.
Panning in the Rivers
Whenever a block of water glistens, there is a 1.6% chance of obtaining an Aquamarine from it. To check for the presence of this precious gemstone, make sure to equip the Copper Pan and interact with these shimmering blocks.
How to Farm Aquamarine
Farm Aquamarine on your farm by placing one gemstone in the Crystalarium. The device will duplicate your Aquamarine every few hours, enabling automated reproduction. The Crystalarium machine unlocks once you reach Mining Level 9 and requires the following ingredients: 9 Stones, 5 Gold Bars, 2 Iridium Bars, and 1 Battery Pack.
What to Do with Aquamarine
You can sell Aquamarine for 180 Gold—the price goes up to 234 if you are a Gemologist. It is also possible to use it in Forging weapons, increasing the Critical Hit ratio of melees. Alternatively, you can gift Aquamarine to Emily, Clint, and Dwarf, as these characters love this gemstone.
Crafting-wise, the only recipe that involves Aquamarine is Marble Brazier, a light source. But you can purchase this item for a fair price at the Carpenter’s Shop. So, no need to hoard Aquamarines.
