Uncut sapphire detail

An uncut sapphire is a blue gem used in Crafting and Fletching. An uncut sapphire can be crafted into a sapphire, requiring level 20 Crafting, yielding 50 Crafting experience. Uncut sapphires can be obtained randomly while mining ores, dropped as loot from defeating monsters, and may by rewarded as a prize from many Distractions and Diversions.

At level 56 Fletching, players can cut a sapphire into sapphire bolt tips. Cutting a sapphire into bolt tips grants the player 4 experience in the Fletching skill, producing 12 sapphire bolt tips.


Uncut sapphires may be mined from gem rocks found throughout Gielinor at level 40 Mining. Wall safes found in the Rogues' Den may be cracked at level 50 Thieving, awarding uncut sapphires occasionally. Uncut sapphires are a common reward of the Gnome Restaurant minigame and from managing Miscellania's kingdom. Uncut sapphires can also be found laying on the ground within the King Black Dragon Lair.

Sapphire rocks

Sapphire rocks, waiting to be mined.

  • Prior to the introduction of the Grand Exchange, the examine text on uncut stones said 'This would be worth more if it was cut'. However after the Grand Exchange was introduced, such description no longer matched the actual market facts and thus this was changed.
  • Although formally released on 8 May 2001, uncut gems were briefly obtainable following the 17 March 2001 cooking update, before the crafting skill was fully implemented.
  • Up to eight uncut sapphires can be mined within a cave found north-west of Rellekka during the Tale of the Muspah quest. These rocks will not respawn for the player once they've been mined.
