Diablo 2 Gems List

Diablo II Gems
Precious gems embody innate magical abilities. When set into a socketed item these gems can add powerful magic effects. Higher grades of gems have stronger effects. There are five grades of gems: chipped, flawed, standard, flawless, and perfect. Once inserted, gems cannot be removed from a socket. Touching a gem shrine either produces a gem or upgrades one gem (randomly chosen from your character's inventory) to the next higher grade. The skulls of some demonic creatures, inscribed with eldritch symbols, are said to work much like gems.

Upgrading Gems
You can upgrade gems by using a Gem Shrine or by using the Horadric Cube. You can use the Horadric Cube to convert gems into higher quality gems. Place 3 Gems of one type into the Horadric Cube and hit the Transmute button.

Gem Effects Stackable
If you place 3 Gems of the same type in a sword you will receive the bonus of all three. Keep in mind that Gems give a random statistic within a range when socketed so three gems of the same type and quality will not create the same amount of damage every time depending on the gem.

The first Gem that is placed will determine the color of the weapon. If there are several different types of Gems in a sword, it will randomly display an attack based on those types of Gems in the sword. So one swing will show cold damage, while the next shows poison attack but all of them are working at the same time.

Socketed Items
Smiths of ancient times mastered the art of bestowing magical properties upon weapons and armor by setting them with powerful gems. Most surviving examples of this art have long since been stripped of their valuable stones by ignorant thieves, rendering their true power silent until new gems are found and set into their empty sockets. The exact nature of the enchantment depends on the type and quality of the gemstones inserted into the item, as well as the item type
Socketed items are easy to identify as their names appear in gray text when highlighted. While in your inventory, you may insert a gem into a Socketed item by left-clicking on the gem to pick it up, and left-clicking over the Socketed item to fuse the gem and the item together. You cannot place a gem in a weapon, helm or shield unless you first remove it and place it in your inventory. Once fused, you will not be able to remove the gem from the item.
Socketed Weapons and Armor allow you to customize your armor and weapons giving it added magical properties such as enhanced statistics, resistances to attacks and more.
Only Helms, Shields, and Weapons can be socketed. Not all weapon types can be socketed. Necromancer Wands and Throwing Weapons cannot be socketed. The max number of Sockets a Socketed Item will have is 3. Each weapon type always has the same amount of sockets, so a Dagger will always have 1 socket if it is Socketed.
