No Stone Unturned
No Stone Unturned
This quest begins when you find an Unusual Gem.
Walkthrough[edit | edit source]
Speak to Vex at the Thieves' Guild about the gem and she will tell you that it is a Stone of Barenziah, but a single stone by itself is worthless. However there are 23 more stones, and together they are worth quite a bit.

Recover the Crown of Barenziah[edit | edit source]
Proceed to the cave and retrieve the crown that is in a part of Tolvald's Crossing, in the south-east of the caves, that specifically becomes accessible during this quest.
Beware of the trolls, and even more so of the hordes of Falmer! A Dunmer Ghost stands near the crown, but does not react to the Dragonborn.
Return to Vex[edit | edit source]
The Dragonborn is rewarded with an active effect called Prowler's Profit.
