Uncut sapphire detail.png

An uncut sapphire is a blue gem used in Crafting and Fletching. An uncut sapphire can be cut by a player with level 20 crafting by using it with a chisel, which makes the uncut sapphire into a sapphire and yields 50 crafting experience.

Uncut sapphires can be obtained in several ways. Players can get them randomly while mining ores, as drops from monsters (mainly those which have access to the rare drop table), gem shops or as a reward from Random events. Uncut sapphires are also a common reward of the Gnome Restaurant activity and from Managing Miscellania. Players can also earn an uncut sapphire as a reward from the Misthalin Mystery quest.

With level 40 mining and the quest Shilo Village completed, players can mine the gem rocks in Shilo Village. Gem rocks may also appear while playing the Tai Bwo Wannai Cleanup activity, where players can mine them 3 times. Another method to get uncut sapphires is by Wall safe cracking in the Rogues' Den, but this requires level 50 Thieving.

Players can use the Fletching skill to cut a sapphire into sapphire bolt tips by using a chisel on a 'cut' sapphire at level 56 Fletching. Cutting a sapphire into bolt tips grants the player 4 Fletching experience and gives the player 12 sapphire bolt tips.
