Diablo II Gems

Precious gems embody innate magical abilities. When set into a socketed item these gems can add powerful magic effects. Higher grades of gems have stronger effects. There are five grades of gems: chipped, flawed, standard, flawless, and perfect. Once inserted, gems cannot be removed from a socket. Touching a gem shrine either produces a gem or upgrades one gem (randomly chosen from your character's inventory) to the next higher grade. The skulls of some demonic creatures, inscribed with eldritch symbols, are said to work much like gems.

Upgrading Gems
You can upgrade gems by using a Gem Shrine or by using the Horadric Cube. You can use the Horadric Cube to convert gems into higher quality gems. Place 3 Gems of one type into the Horadric Cube and hit the Transmute button.

Vendors do not normally sell Gems
If another player in a multiplayer game sells a Gem to a Vendor you may be able to buy it.

Vendors also will not typically pay you full price for socketed items.

Gem effects Stackable
If you place 3 Gems of the same type in a sword you will receive the bonus of all three.

The first Gem that is placed will determine the color of the weapon. If there are several different types of Gems in a sword, it will randomly display an attack based on those types of Gems in the sword. So one swing will show cold damage, while the next shows poison attack but all of them are working at the same time.

Note: For Emeralds, when calculating the final damage after the gems have been added, the damage (but not the length) is added up.

The real damage of poison internally is held as damage per frame and duration in frames, in many cases (including gems, skills, items and so on), the true poison damage is actually a non integer number and the shown value is truncated, meaning you can, if the fractions add up, see some "bonus" effects which is in fact not a bonus, just fractions adding up and being shown when the game truncates the poison damage.

Once the final damage has been calculated by adding the Emeralds, it does X damage total, over its Y duration.

Sapphires
The Freeze Durations are cumulative.
