Prospecting is a Jewelcrafting ability which allows the gathering of gems from raw ore that can be obtained via the Mining skill. Five ore of the same type are consumed per prospecting attempt and produces 1-3 gems, with the most common result being a single gem prospected. The gems acquired are of types which could be found by mining a mineral node of the type of ore consumed. For example, prospecting [Iron Ore] can produce [Jade] and [Citrine], which would normally be found on an iron node.

Only common ores can be prospected. [Dark Iron Ore] and quest ores that are not used in crafting cannot be prospected.
