Here is a link to the guide for transfiguration http://www.carls-sims-3-guide.com/skills/collecting/worldadventures/transfiguration.php

Thanks! Thought I had seen it somewhere, didn't know if I was remembering wrong or not.  :D   (Now my quest is to get one of each... how many gemstones are there again? :o)

Thanks for the list wildredchild, but are you sure that 21 is the right number? I just got my geode and septarian nodule skulls and counted, and I have 22 not including flourite. And slingsby has 24 in that photo which doesn't include tiberium or flourite :S I hope I'm not missing any...

I could be wrong, but that is what I counted in actual types of gems.  Could you please look through your data and see what I may be missing?

Edit: I was missing Soulpeace *headdesk*

I think there may be one or two duplicates ... I promise to visit that household and check early this week.

I think that's the full collection - apart from the new one that came with Ambitions.
What a great collection! :o  Wow!

I see an Egypt room in back. I'd love to see the pics of that room too.

It would be fun to have a Post Your Collections picture thread!

I agree!  need more pictures!  I keep trying to have a 'treasure room' and as far as I've gotten is one in my Wishmaster Challenge.  And I have a total of 6 figures from all the places total!  Of course my sims weren't rolling any wish to go on adventures - only things like....'write a novel'  "hey... we're in Egypt, I think I'll write a novel." ::)

I steer away from display rooms for gems, when you have a board breaker and an retired one you get a lot, I learnt the hard way of selling them all!  ;D

I just stick them in a treasure chest until I am ready to do something like make skull cuts in every gem type.  The artifacts from the different countries also go into treasure chests.

This isn't a very good shot, but this is the room i stick all my gems, metals, and pieces of sarcophaguses, etc., in. It was a fuller a few days ago before I made all the skulls out of them.

Yeah I do the same, ever since having to put all valuable stuff in the family inventory for renovating the house etc. The basement has changed more than the house!  :)

I'm very jealous, Pally.  :-[ I am awful at finding in game gems...

Anyway, here's a hilarious picture of my current sim and his toddler, Isidore...He's teaching her early how to run a buisness.

"Loiral...?"

Completely wrong. He's insulting her!

Yay, my 1000th post.  I have never been with anything like this for this long.  This site and everyone here are so awesome.  This was my idea of a party picture, lol.

Awesome Saltypaws.

TollingBells - I kinda cheated, using the collector thingy (the one that looks like a butterfly that you get from happiness points). That's the only way I've ever done it. I don't know how people find them without it.

I use that alot too.  What I used to do before I got the collection helper, was just made sure their needs where all the way up and start hunting.  I don't have near that many though, those pics are quite impressive.

<blush> I'm flattered by the comments on one of my cellars. However, the question was Skull Cut Gems, was it not?  Here they are, with their values ...


Left to Right, starting with the top row ...
Septarian - Alabaster - Soulpeace - Lapis - Pink Diamond - Diamond - Tiberium - Amethyst - Sapphire - Emerald - Ruby - Citrine
17.830 - 1,640 - 41,110 - 660 - 20,520 - 5,300 - 5,800 - 370 - 1,390 - 650 - 420 - 730
Bottom Row ...
Geode - Soulpeace - Septarian - Luminorious - Soulpeace - Rainbow - Turquoise - Tanzanite - Smoky Quartz - Topaz - Jade - Luminorious
5.920 - 37,640 - 15,810 - 8,,640 - 10,390 - 13,040 - 950 - 2,020 - 490 - 440 - 3,740 - 6,620

The Geode and Septarian skulls came from the usual process: 5 different cuts.  So we used Split and Heart cuts, then filled the rest of the 5 first spaces with Split cuts.  Then used the last 3 spaces on the Carter XL for the other 3 different cuts, and using 3 different gems to make sure the Geode/Septarian was in the majority.  I think what we used affected the final Skull colour.

Hope that helps/encourages?  ;D

Thank you - how kind!   <blush>

I try to build a separate cellar room for each collection [France, Egypt and China] and put all the stuff on display cases.  I frequently build a second, deeper, cellar for the Sarcophagus collection and odd storage boxes for gems [cut and uncut], Time Machine and that sort of thing.  Depends on the size of the lot, of course.
