The gem list is set up with the range of prices Arte may offer -- Overstocked prices are drastically lower than even the lowest offered prices. Arte will say, "Oh no, not another one! I've got more of these than Webkinz have fur!" on a really bad day. You may also hear him say, "I usually snap these up, but I got a whole bunch yesterday. Here's what I can offer you." These are the times when you keep that gem for your collection. When you find the Gem of the Day, Arte will congratulate you with, "Congratulations! You found the gem of the day. I could really use one of those," and offer you about double the normal price. Gem of the Day prices are the high end mark in the price list.
When you open up your little mine chest at the Curio Shop or in your room, you'll see the gems are arranged in a pyramid. The first level is the "big rare" at the top of the pyramid -- Webkinz Diamond, Earth Emerald, Red Ruby Heart, Ocean Sapphire, and Corona Topaz.
The second level is the Unicorn Horn, Yum Zum Sparkle, etc. through the other colors in the middle of the pyramid. These are "uncommon" gems.
The third level are the "common" gems, like Booger Nuggets, Goober Glitters, and Zingoz Zincoz. You can find them in up to three different mines, and don't sell for much.
The gem locations appear to move around inside the mine, even on a daily basis. There is no surefire way to guarantee a gem, even of the color you're looking for.
The best idea seems to be to stick to one mine until you find all gems listed for THAT mine and then move on to the next.
The placement of the gems seems to be random, changing even within the same hour. They don't come in any predictable location. Although we know which mine to look in, we cannot say exactly where to look inside the mine.
