Large Gems are items designed for the PvP game Capture the Gem, and are dropped when the player dies, even if they are in Classic or Softcore mode. With each different Large Gem that is held or carried in the player's inventory, a hologram of it appears above the player's head. If two or more different Large Gems are carried, their holograms will revolve in a circular pattern above the player's head. They are immediately deleted if placed in a player's trash slot[1].

Large Gems can be placed into a Gem Lock to function as a key. This is primarily used in making adventure maps.

Each Large Gem can also be combined with a Minecart at any Anvil to produce a Gem Minecart. The Gem Minecarts are mechanically identical to the regular Minecart, but are aesthetically representative of their Gem type, and sparkle.
