  • Kills from pets or minions also trigger the effect, but kills from followers don't.
  • The explosion drops several large piles of gold in addition to their normal loot.
  • The explosion does not cause any damage.


  • This gem will have no effect in Greater Rifts.
  • It is also the only gem that gives no real combat effectiveness by itself. The massive quantities of gold offered, however, do prove very potent when coupled with items like Goldwrap and the Custerian Wristguards.
