Gemstones!This mod adds gemstones to the world, which can be mined and crafted into tools and blocks.
It includes amethyst, ruby, emerald, sapphire and cubic zirconia (yup, I'm avoiding diamond), but I'm planning to add more gems in a near future.
The recipes for tools are the same as the normal ones (replacing iron, stone, etc. by gemstones), and a block is made of 9 gems.
This version adds no new gems, but it should be working with the new item definition rules which came with minetest 0.4.dev-20120122-1.
The mod depends on MarkTraceur's add_tool, but I think I'll write my own function for tools if it doesn't get updated soon.
The latest version is gemstones 1.5.0
You can find all versions in the downloads page.
