I've had a look around the forms and web and can't seem to find an answer thus far.

The three Shilo Village gem rocks:

Pre-update these gave all gems up to and including diamonds, as well as the breakable gems Opal, Jade & Topaz. I'm mining there right now and all I seem to be getting are Emeralds, Rubies and Diamonds. I'm quite keen to still collect Saphires, Opals, Jades & Topaz's from here, is it a bug that they're not appearing? Or will I need to mine somewhere else.

The skill guide seems to suggest that the Shilo rocks don't produce anything below emerald.

The common gem rocks in Al Kharid's quarry produce opals, jades and topazes. You can get sapphires from the uncommon gem rocks there, too.

Gem rocks are now divided into several tiers, the tier shilo has both above and below ground is Precious. Each increasing tier has vastly more HP than the last with Prif gem rocks taking over 2 minutes per gem.

Common tier contain: Opal, Lapis, Jade, Red Topaz
Uncommon contains: Sapphire, Emerald, Ruby
Precious contains: Sapphire, Emerald, Ruby, Diamond
Rare contains: Emerald, Ruby, Diamond, Dragonstone
Prifddinas contains: Sapphire, Emerald, Ruby, Diamond, Dragonstone, Onyx

Overall, gem rocks got nerfed badly and gems from mining normal ores got a massive boost, a very bad design choice on Jagex's part.
