Green Gem Up Close

Gems are the sole currency in Growtopia. They can be obtained through in-app purchases, completing Tapjoy offers or through common aspects of gameplay, such as breaking blocks and harvesting trees.

Gems are spent on Broadcasts and on items that are available in the in-game store, such as World Locks and item packs.

Gems group together when there is a certain amount of gems in the tile. As the value of the gem increases, the size of the gem also increases slightly (the table below, however, does not show the size difference).

Supporter Rank

Earning 3500 gems or more through Tapjoy offers or in-app purchases grants the player the Supporter rank. If you buy $25 worth of gems, you will get super supporter status with 4 new skin colors and the /warp command since the Systems Update came out, on September 2nd.

Gem Drops

Each type of block or tree in Growtopia drops a different amount of gems. This amount is usually influenced by the rarity of the block or item, but some blocks drop an unusually large amount of gems as they have been configured to. A good example of this is the Mystery Block. When one is broken, the amount of gems it yields can range from 10 to 50. Another example of this is the Pot O' Gold, an extremely rare block that is only available during St. Patrick's Week, which can yield up to 200 gems when broken.

Methods of Obtaining Gems

There are many ways of obtaining gems in the game.


Farming is the process of harvesting a set amount of trees of a specific item, breaking the blocks and planting the seeds. The process is then repeated.
