Ever notice the size of the gems in game?
Ever notice how pronounced the size of diamonds (and other gems) are on jewelry?

How many carats do you think a diamond would be if this was real life?
How many carats do you think would be on the diamonds on jewelry?

my headcanon has been that Gielinor has an unusual abundance of easily accessible mineral wealth very close to the surface. Hell, there are still lots of outcroppings above the surface that are nowhere near depleted yet.

(and with the mining and smithing rework, they'll never deplete!)

The value of such materials is determined by the labor involved in extracting and producing it, and the scarcity too. On a planet like Gielinor, metals and precious minerals are going to naturally be cheap. You know how cheap gold is anyway, too.

Can't really say how big those diamonds actually are because
