Morrowind: Items

Soul Gems are used to capture Souls in order to use their energy to recharge magical items or to create your own. For more information on this process, see Enchant and Soultrap. The gold values given on this chart are for empty soul gems. Once filled, the value will be higher, depending on the size of the soul.

Name ID Weight Value Max Soul
Petty Soul Gem Petty Soul Gem Misc_SoulGem_Petty 0.2 10 30
Lesser Soul Gem Lesser Soul Gem Misc_SoulGem_Lesser 0.5 20 60
Common Soul Gem Common Soul Gem Misc_SoulGem_Common 1.0 40 120
Greater Soul Gem Greater Soul Gem Misc_SoulGem_Greater 1.5 60 180
Grand Soul Gem Grand Soul Gem Misc_SoulGem_Grand 2.0 200 600
Azura's Star Azura's Star* Misc_SoulGem_Azura 2.0 5,000 15,000

* Azura's Star is a special soul gem, given as a reward for Azura's Quest, and is fully described on the Azura's Star article. Unlike other soul gems, it will not be destroyed when used, so you can use it again and again.

The price of a filled soul gem is: soul size × value of empty gem.


Many vendors sell soul gems. Two vendors have restocking supplies: Fadase Selvayn in Tel Branora restocks Petty, Lesser, and Common Soul Gems. In the Tribunal expansion, Elbert Nermarc in Mournhold restocks Common, Greater, and Grand Soul Gems. The best way to get them is to search bandit caves, as soul gems are often found in random loot.

Lesser and Common Soul Gems can also be found on dead Bonelords.
