Jewels

All about Jewels
In FF9, Jewels serve a few different purposes. First, specific Jewels allow appropriate characters to learn various Summons. Additionally the power of certain Summons is proportional to the quantitiy of a specific type of Jewel you keep in your inventory. The most important thing to keep in mind is this - never sell your Jewels unless you know EXACTLY what you are doing - and how it will impact your game in the future. This is one of those nuances of FF9 that bugs a lot of people.

Ore
Ore can be won from multiple enemies all throughout the game. If you're on the first three discs, don't worry about selling off some - but be sure to keep at least 75 or so on hand. You can use it to heal your characters in battle (it will restore 4 times the number of Ore in inventory HP.)

Peridot
When equiped, Peridot is used to learn the Thundara and Ramuh skills. You can steal it from: Griffin, Mistodon, Stroper, Grenade, and Tiamat enemies. It can be found in a chest in Pinnacle Rocks and synthesized later in the game. If you use it in battle, it will give you HP based on the number you have in inventory.

Sapphire
You can first acquire Sapphire by killing off Gnolls when you first leave Conde Petie, as well as Drakan and Red Dragon enemies. Sapphires let you learn Fenrir and High Tide. They can also be synthesized later in the game. Theoretically you can get HP by using them in battle (proportionally linked to the number in your inventory), but you probably don't want to do that.

Moonstone
When you first get to the Conde Petie mountain path, collecting all four colored gems and placing them in the stone monolith to the right of the Moogles will net you a Moonstone . This will allow you to learn Beast Killer and Shell. This one can NOT be synthed later, so be sure to grab it while you can!
