Those are spirits from ghost profession.  That is what you take to the science lab to sell or you can just sell then through buy mode.  Wonder if you get more money by taking them to the lab or buy mode.  I think it is the same.

Pielord, is that a skull cut on the small display table? I tried to put one of each cut on that thing and when it came to putting the skull there it wouldn't fit, so I decided to add an uncut gem to that display and have some of the large cases for the skulls.
I haven't really done a lot of displaying, mainly when I have a collector, they are in it for the money so things don't usually get kept. Having said that, since playing the wishmaster's challenge where  we have got beyond the point of needing the money, I have enjoyed seeing the collections grow and I'm thinking of starting a game with a traveller/collector. When I finish wishmasters, I may even kick everyone except Dotty out and just play her to continue what is already a nice collection.
Anyway, here is my collection of gems. I'm aiming at one of each cut of each gem. Check out the gnomes, think they approve?

Wow, impressive collections everyone.  I never thought to do that, I just have everything scattered throughout the houses.

I definitely think the gnomes are checking things out. :D

I too scatter my collections all over their home and vacation homes.  
And Twinmum, I would keep a close eye on your collection and your gnomes - it looks to me like they are casing the joint  :-\.  Maybe that is what they do when they disappear:  take a gem (or gems) and run!  :)

I think it's because you use more than one skull cut gem on a small display, I only have 1 per display section. I like the idea of adding a raw example of the gem and keeping all the skull cuts together though. Sounds like it will look really great! I also want to make a sort of sanctuary for tiberium skulls and spires.

I've been keeping my gems all organized by cut and color inside a chest, but these pictures make me realize how much I've been missing out on by not spreading it all out to see in all its dragonny glory.

Amazing you guys!  But.....what's the point?  Seriously.  Is there a reason for hanging on to all that stuff other than aesthetics and a serious urge to hoard?  (Some people have dragon blood in their ancestry for sure!)  Well, whatever the reason I love seeing all those goodies and am amazed at the amount of time and work it took to get all those things.  As for me, manual uninstall without remembering to save has done me in.  Sigh.

A lot of people are just collectors by nature.  It makes them happy to find everything in a collection.  Also, when complete collections are displayed, Sims in the same room get a positive moodlet from it.  It's only for things like the Canopic Jars Collection or the Dangerous Creatures Collection, not from gems or metals (as far as I know).

Hmmm.  By nature eh? Sigh.  So that means the 500 pounds of rock samples I dragged from the east coast to the west coast kind of puts me in that category?  Not to mention several boxes of shells?  Ok, I guess I get it. lol

I think when you move from one coast to another, you're not supposed to bring the coast with you!

One of the movers who moved us asked, "What do you have in here?  Rocks?".  I didn't have the guts to say, "yeah".  lol  I'm glad I did though because my grand and great-grandkids have had a good time sorting through them and looking up what each mineral etc. is.  Even used some for school projects.  Ditto with the shells.  Gotta love the Gulf Coast of Florida for that!

I can relate, Joria.  :D When me and my mom moved in with my step father, he couldn't belive how many rocks and shells we had collected over the years. They're in a box in the shop somewhere now... ??? I'm not going out there to look for 'em, there's probably quite a few critters out there that have homes in there...

I really like your trophy room! Also, the way you use those wall lights inspires me to try it out with my heart shape cuts, would look great.

How did you make that little symbol by your personal message button? It's a link to your blog "character legacy". Can everyone make things like that?

I bought some of the Chests from France, you can get them in all the WA locations. A stone chest from Egypt, a red/blackish(brown) chest from China and then a Gold and wooden type one from France. I keep Gems and Harvestables in them.

I know this is off topic but thank you for mentioning you keep your harvestables in the chests. I have accidentally had my Sims make pancakes from flame fruit or life fruit and leaving them on the floor just seems so odd. What a great idea!
