—In-game description, The Sacred Stones
The Gold Gem (金宝石 Kin hōseki) is a rare gem that is exclusive to Fire Emblem: The Sacred Stones. The Gold Gem serves no other practical purpose apart from providing gold through its sale to a vendor (20,000G). Due to the valuable nature of the Gold Gem, it is thus very difficult to obtain, requiring one to go through the whole Lagdou Ruins and defeat the Draco Zombie that holds it on the final floor. The Gold Gem, alongside its other lucrative gem counterparts, is substituted by the Bullion in later entries to the Fire Emblem Series.
|Name||Uses||Worth||Effect(s) / Note(s)|

|Dropped||Boss Draco Zombie (Lagdou Ruins Floor 10)|
- If the name of the item is taken literally, it is somewhat paradoxical, as a gem cannot be made out of gold. It may simply refer to the color of the gem.
