I thought the idea was that gems would only be found by mining. Not sold.

Now? If I'm reading this correctly, you can buy gems to sponsor 3d training time for the art staff.

What did I misunderstand? Or is this just a chance of policy?

(Yes, I read the two-part news post)

    It is new, but not really a change in policy.

    In Robs posts where gems where introduced he said:
    "The only possible exception I can see is if Xin or Lillian wanted to design a gem and put it up for sale or bidding. Titan-created gems might become an occasional and special thing in the future. But programmatically generated gems for sale by us never will be. "

    This is such a special sale. I am not a member of Team Erfworld and cannot speak for them but I assume this means that you will never be able to buy the gem shapes which are minable so far.

    There might be new gems which are buyable, either for cash only or also for Shmuckers (Shmuckers only would be rather pointless since you can buy Shmuckers for cash) and there might be new minable gem shapes which presumably also would never be buyable. Frankly, this might be the only way to make a profit giving all the time and effort invested in setting up the gem thing if cryptocurrencies keep plummeting.

    And even if Rob is reluctant to make more special sales for real money unless absolutely necessary it might be a great way to get some Shmuckers out of circulation.

    It definitely counts as a special thing, and it's a way to decirculate shmuckers and bring in cash. So yea.
