The Red Gem is an Item used to craft several Magical items. It can be used to craft the Fire Staff, Night Light, Life Giving Amulet, and Purple Gem.

Red Gems can be obtained from Graves, as a drop from Red Hounds, from trading a Sextant to Wolly, from Earthquakes and Stalagmites in Caves, and from Ancient Statues, Broken Clockworks, and Ornate Chests in Ruins. They can also be found as a single, one time drop from hammering the Sunken Boat.

In the Reign of Giants DLC, Red Gems have a 0.02% chance to be dropped by Tumbleweeds.

In the Shipwrecked DLC, Fishing with Trawl Net in deep Ocean has a small chance to catch a red gem. The chance is higher during Hurricane Season and Dry Season. Magma Piles in Magma Field biomes also have a chance to drop them.

In Hamlet, Red Gems can be obtained by hammering A Smashing Pot, killing the Pugalisk, finding them atop pedestals in Ancient Pig Ruins, and mining the Petrified Eggs in the BFB's nest.

In Don't Starve Together, the Dragonfly drops 2 Red Gems upon death. Red Gem Deer also drops one of them if killed or if Klaus is killed. Red Gems can be used to craft a Scaled Furnace or inserted into Cratered Moonrocks to acquire a Red Moonlens. They can also be used to power Winona's G.E.M.erator.
