If you find gems in your inventory, you have acquired different, highly valuable, Starstones. Found throughout Bahari Bay and Kilima Valley, this is how to get Starstones in Palia.

Where to Find Starstones in Palia

Starstones are gems that randomly drop from mining nodes. They’re added to your inventory at the same time as the stone, ore, flint, or clay when the deposit breaks apart. No matter where in Palia you’re mining, there’s a chance of a Starstone dropping.

Added to boost the earning potential from mining, selling them isn’t the only thing they’re good for. Villagers love them, especially when you gift them the gem that matches their Star Path. You’ll be rewarded with unique dialogue as well as a significant Friendship increase. You’re only able to take advantage of this weekly, with it resetting Sunday at 9 p.m. PST.
