Gem rocks are a decent option to train mining but most people prefere mlm to it because of the afk gameplay. I belive that if we buffed the gem rocks slightly with the posibillity to get better gems more players would use this content.
For example the posibillity to get dragonstones, onxyes and zenytes.
my suggestion for rates could ofc be tweked but i think these would be good enuff without crashing any of these gems.
1/250 for dragonstone
1/10k for onyx
1/60k for zenyte
I think this would be great for the mining skill, it would help skillers and low levels and could help some Ironmen aswell.
Me? -Playes Osrs with passion damn i love that game

First of all, gemrocks are already a good method for training mining and don't need a buff. It would be better to buff methods of training which are currently largely ignored. For instance, the first one that comes to mind is mining mining lovakite in Lovakengj, which is extremely slow for the amount of experience you get, even at high levels, especially considering there's no profit either.

Second, the rates you propose are high enough to almost double the expected profit-per-rock. Considering gem rocks are already one of the most profitable methods of mining, this would entirely unbalance them. Given the activity is generally pretty easy, doesn't require much focus, and has no risk, that would be pretty substantially unbalanced.

So in general, no support. If we are working on buffing content, I'd rather see content buffed that's not already entirely viable, and instead buff content which is largely ignored until it is viable (at least, for some level range) to increase the total amount of player choice available.

No support for adding onyx and Zenyte there, even for someone who thinks skilling is hard done by compared to PvM that'd be insane. I would support adding dragonstones only if the rate they were dropped by some monsters was reduced to offset the amount that would come in through mining. I would also only support it if it was locked behind the Karamja diary so bots would be less likely to profit.

Hey now that's a pretty decent idea. Being able to get dragonstones, but only if a certain tier of the diary is completed? That would be a cool update.

That said, I would personally like them to introduce a new sink for dragonstones before implementing a new source.
