Gemstones are precious treasures that can make you rich in Resident Evil 4 Remake. So, keep reading to learn about all the best ways to obtain Gemstones in the game.

Finding treasures and trading them with mysterious merchants for weapons and upgrades was one of the core mechanics of Resident Evil 4. So, it’s no surprise that it made a comeback in the new remake as well.

However, the trade is not as simple and straightforward as it sounds. A treasure sold on its own will not fetch a good price unless it is inlaid with gemstones. Gemstones in Resident Evil 4 are precious stones that are designed to elevate the value of any antique treasures you may find throughout your journey.

Although Gemstones themselves are considered treasure items that can be sold on their own, it is almost never recommended. That’s because, by combining your treasures with Gemstones, you can sell them at special pieces. Moreover, you can combine different types of Gemstones to earn special bonuses.
