Gem Value

One gem is equal to whatever time is left up to an hour. This means if there is 02:03:00 (hh:mm:ss) left for the egg to hatch or breed, it will cost three gems to finish it (2 Gem template's for the hours + 1 Gem template for the 3 minutes). However, if you wait four minutes until 01:59:00 it will only cost two gems. There used to be a glitch that allows players to spend one gem when the timer shows 00:00:00, the notification now asks: "Finish it now for nothing?"

Obtaining Gems

Free gems can be received via friends who gift. Up to 500 gems can be received daily (assuming 500 friends willing to gift), but only three gems a day can be sent to people on a player's friends list.

See the Strategies page for additional information on gifting gems.
  • The Dragonsai Gifting Tree can be purchased for 100 gems, and will allow the player to give away three additional gems per day.

Free gems can also be obtained by winning in the Colosseum. A silver trophy awards two gems and a gold trophy awards five gems. A bronze trophy does not award any gems.

Gems can be obtained by getting the Gold Treasure chest (which is done by coming in first place in a race) at the Dragon Track. Awards can include one to two gems.

Gems can be earned with Gemstone Dragons in the Gemstone Island

Gems can be obtained if a goal that requires the user to breed an epic, oppositegemstonePepper, or Forest dragon is completed. The gems awarded range from one to five, depending on the difficulty of the particular dragon in question to breed.

As of March 26, 2013, gems can also be obtained by sharing the completion of some goals on Facebook or Twitter.

The Dragonsai Bush, a limited event reward decoration introduced during the Season of Goodies, allows the player to give away one additional gem per day.

For DragonVale's 1 year anniversary, Backflip Studios gave 25 free gems to the accounts of those who logged in between September 14, 2012 and September 17, 2012.

Between June 20, 2013 and June 23, 2013, Backflip Studios offered 30% free gems with every purchase, exclusive to Google Play users. The announcement had a typographical error, in that it indicated "July" rather than "June".

For DragonVale's 2 year anniversary, Backflip Studios gave 25 free gems to the accounts of those who logged in from September 13, 2013, onwards by entering "2years" into the Redeem Code Screen and following the steps to collect the gift.
