As people get closer to 60 which is the point where the right crafted armor and gems start really making your character shine, many questions have arisen regarding what gems to buy. Since me looking up every gem type for each person has already gotten a bit repetitive, I'm going to try and create a guide here to help us all out at least with knowing a little about what's what in gemcrafting.

Raw Gems:

There are two types of every Raw gem, Uncut and Flawless.

The uncut gem can be turned into various Green quality gems, while the Flawless gems can be turned into various Blue quality gems.

Cut Types:

The cut type determines what the gem can be placed into.

1H Weapon Cuts:
Rhombic (green quality)
Trillion (blue quality)

2H Weapon Cuts:
Oval (green quality)
Teardrop (blue quality)

Armor Cuts:
Oblique (green quality)
Cabochon (blue quality)

-------------------------------------------------------------------------

Each cut gem will randomly produce one of its possible effect names, so while able to narrow down the possibilities, you may have to go through many of the right raw gems to get exactly what you want.

Some effects are more rare than others, though there are no numbers out there to show exactly which ones and how rare, so keep in mind even though a gem may show only say 7 possibilities, that does not mean your chances for the gem you want are necessarily 1 in 7.
===============================================

Gem Colors:
note: its easy to mistake gem color with gem quality since there are also blue and green colored gems along with the others. Be careful not to mix these up.

I'm only including 60-80 gems as this is where these become useful. The level 40 and 50 gems of the same color will produce the same though if you wish to test them out.

Last but not least, in order to look up a specific gem on the Auction house and get more details or look to purchase it, type in <Effect Name> <Cut Name> <Gem Name> (without <>).

So, for the last in the list above for a level 80, you'd look up Rupturing Trillion Star Ruby.
