Default Answered: Gem Hunt question

Hi everyone I was wondering if this typically happens or if it's something weird with my account:

I had a hard time getting my Crown of Wonder--I just couldn't find the corona topaz. Luckily after months I found it and got my crown. Then, I started collecting gems again, either for another crown or to trade with Doug. And again I can't get the corona topaz! All the other gems, but not that one.

Is that typical to keep having problems finding the same gem?

Thanks for any thoughts on this

PS I forgot to mention: I've been checking the Barking Mad mine like crazy... For like months now. Argh! Maybe one day I'll find that naughty corona topaz

I've found numerous Web Wonders on everyone else's accounts, but not my own. *sigh*

I hope you find that Corona Topaz soon.

When I found the Red Ruby Heart at last, I was ecstatic. It took me another 4 months to get another one for my second crown.

But I know it's not like that for everyone.

Hm... perhaps you aren't going to a certain cave a lot. There are certain gems that are only in one cave. Especially the rare ones, and the Carona Topaz is a rare gem. Here's a guide: http://www.webkinzinsider.com/forum/f138/guide-artes-gem-hunt-explained-198771/
And here's another one: http://www.webkinzinsider.com/forum/f138/guide-gem-hunt-locations-4056/

I think it is probably just luck. It took me forever to find the River Ripple (a common gem!) to get my first crown, but now I keep getting it over and over

I also had trouble getting a paticular yellow gem.. I can't remember which one though.. maybe the same one as you. I recall finding to Webkinz Diamonds before finding it.

On my very first crown I ever got, the aurora stone was my problem. I normally keep at least 2 of each gem now. I try to get the top gems first then work my way down to the easier ones to get.

That's the key: The Corona Topaz can only by found in the Barking Mad mine, so keep searching there until you find it. Once you do, keep going to that mine for a few more days, as a number of times I've found the same top row gem several days in a row. One lucky streak (glitch??) every blue gem I found in the Howling Horse mine for about two weeks was the Ocean Sapphire. My daughter got a similar streak with the Ruby Heart and the Webkinz Diamond.

I couldn't say if it's typical, but it happens to me too. Currently, the gem that's playing hard-to-get for me is the Red Ruby Heart. I've been going the the Muzzle Mouth Mine every day for over a month now and it's still eluding me!

As for your Corona Topaz, keep going to the Barking Mad Mine and don't give up!
