Garnet is a classic red gem that you can mine in Story of Seasons: Friends of Mineral Town. They can be found from the very first level of the Lake Mine, making them one of the easier minerals to get for gifting and selling.

How To Get Garnet

Gems like Garnet can only be found by breaking rocks with your Hammer at the Lake Mine. Just keep digging and smashing until you finally find a piece of Garnet.

Tip: You’re more likely to find a Garnet on levels that end in the numbers 6 or 7.

Also, upgrading the Hammer to the Cursed/Blessed or Mythic level can allow you to charge it and simultaneously break all the boulders on the map, saving you a lot of time while farming for gems.

Remember that you can only access the Lake Mine during Winter, when Kappa’s lake freezes over.

In later stages of the game, though, you can find a Travel Stone on Level 255 of the Spring Mine which will allow you to instantly teleport anywhere in Mineral Town on a whim.

Selling Garnet Gems

Garnets can be sold to either Zack or Huang for 75 G.

To sell your Garnet to Zack, simply drop your gems into the Shipping Bin and wait for him to pick them up at 5:00 PM every day.

As usual for Huang, you’ll need to head to his shop and talk to him over the counter.

While selling to Huang might feel tempting to do all the time, remember that selling your Garnet via the Shipping Bin will count towards the list of shippable items you need to achieve for full completion.

This is important because shipping all possible items is a requirement for marrying either Kappa or the Harvest Goddess.

You can track your progress by checking the Shipping List on your bookshelf.
