A gem of seeing was a magical gem.[4][5][6]


The gem looked like a regular gem. It was exquisitely cut and polished. Casting detect magic on the gem was the only way to determine if it was a genuine gem of seeing. Often the gem was mounted in a frame and attached to a pole for ease of use.[3][4][5][6]


The gem gave the user the ability of truesight. When an individual looked at an area through the gem, the gem detected all illusions and invisible creatures or items. It was also able to detect astral, ethereal, and phased creatures. The maximum viewing distance of the gem was 300 ft (91 m), at this range only large creatures or objects were detectable.[3][4][5][6]
