Regardless of the type of gemstone used during construction, these golems were highly resistant to physical damage and were practically unstoppable when unleashed.
In order to control a gemstone golem during battle, a circle of at least a dozen wizards, led by a superior, was needed. Directing the golem required the circle's complete focus, and any interruption resulted in the golem wandering aimlessly. The control extended for one mile beyond where the circle was first formed. Gemstone golems were deactivated when not in use by a circle.
