All crafted socketable gems are named in a particular two-part pattern:

<Stat_prefix> <Gem_name>


a name that defines what stats the gem have. All gems with that name share those attributes, though the values will vary.
<Gem Name>
the base material used to make the (socketable) gem. The better the base material, the greater the resulting attributes.


While there may be some overlap between Epic BC cuts and Uncommon Wrath cuts, generally the Wrath cuts are still marginally stronger (and easier to acquire).

To find the gem you want, you can search for the <Stat_prefix> part of the name, depending on what socket and stats you are looking for, then use the quality selector on the Auction House UI to specify what amount of the desired stats you want (and how much gold you are willing to spend). Alternately, you can choose in the subset of gem the color you want and specify the quality, then it will produce a longer list of gems you can choose from.

Meta GemsEdit

Main article: Meta gems

While meta gems share in the (prefix) (gem name) naming scheme, there are many effect combinations, making a table by attributes impractical. See Meta gems for a full listing.


Both of these can be crafted into purple 'Purified' gems (Spell Power and Spirit)

Both of these can be crafted into prismatic Enchanted varieties that add a value to all stats.
