Why Do You Need Emeralds?

Disney Dreamlight Valley Emerald

In Disney Dreamlight Valley, you can do farming, fishing, and other such activities to earn a few hundred-star coins. But that is a time-consuming and less-surprising way to earn money in the game. Everyone loves surprises and wants to gain more rewards with less effort. Emeralds behave the same way, as they act as speed boosters for your cash and item upgrades. Gems like Emeralds are useful in the following ways.

To Earn Money

Money is required to purchase many items in the game and unlock the quests. You can use the rare Emeralds and exchange them at Goofy’s shop to get cash. If you do not want to get coins in return for the precious gem, you can just accumulate them as Emerald is an asset in itself. 

To Complete Quests

Gems not only give star coins but are required in certain missions and quests. For example, a mission, “Dreamlight Valley Economy 101,” requires us to sell gems at Goofy’s store. Another task, “With Great Power,” requires players to have three unique gemstones to pass through the Mystical Cave. Similarly, Emerald gem is mandatory in crafting a device to bring back Minnie Mouse in “Memory Magnification,” a friendship quest. 

To Craft Recipes

Players can use gems like emeralds to craft recipes using a crafting workbench. For instance, the Green Light Low Beach torch requires Verdant Peridot as a recipe material. If you want to discover new recipes and meals in the game, we recommend you check out All Recipes.

Emeralds Location And Perks

There are more than a dozen gems in the game, and specific locations are allotted to each of them in the Valley. The Emerald gem is green in color. It is more precisely dark green, not to be confused with Peridot, which comparatively has a lighter shade of green. So, it is not that difficult to differentiate it from other gems. You have to go to some specific locations where the chances of finding this gem are higher.  

First, you must get a Pickaxe next to the Plaza Valley’s well. The Pickaxe is used to smash the rocks to get Emeralds. After grabbing your Pickaxe, dive into the locations where chances of coming across emerald are high. 


Gems are scattered all over the Valley, but there are some hot spots for each gem, where the chances of getting the specific gem are high. Emeralds are found on tall black rocks on the cliffside. You can locate and see the gems even from a distance because most of the gems have a shiny surface. There are two best places to harvest Emeralds in the game, which are:

Forest Of Valor:

Forest of Valor

The Forest of Valor is present at the east of Plaza. You’ll need 5000 Star coins to unlock this area. Look for tall black rocks in the Forest of Valor and collect your favorite emeralds.

Glade of Trust

Both of the areas require 5000 Dreamlight coins to unlock them. Pay to unlock and then look for tall black-colored rocks with gems or jewels appearing on them. Emerald appears dark green, smash the rocks and harvest the gems.

Secret Tips To Farm Emerald

If you find it difficult to find Emerald gems, the following tips can be useful to you.

Focus On The Green

Look for gems with green color gems appearing on them. As the emerald is dark green, you will most likely come across it while searching out black rocks showing green gemstones on top of it. Even if no green gemstone appears on the rocks, try your luck; you can still find a shiny Emerald. 

Take The Help Of Your Mining Buddy

Before mining the Emeralds, don’t forget to take the village mining friend with you. If you don’t have a mining friend, go and adjust the character skill to mining and take the mining buddy with you to increase the chances of bagging the emeralds. 

Level Up The Mining Mate

Leveling up the character skill and the mining buddy is extremely helpful in hunting emeralds as it enhances the chances of getting rare items and bonuses. Level up and get a helping hand from your mining buddy in quenching the thirst for Emeralds.
