Precious Gems Mod 1.4.7 adds 9 new ores:

In order from left to right: Sapphire Ore, Amethyst Ore, Ruby Ore, Topaz Ore, White Gold Ore, Glow Ore, Copper Ore, and Blaze Ore. Glow Ore and Blaze Ore both give off light, Aquamarine below.

These can all be crafted into blocks from their drops shown below:

Glow Shards and Blaze Shards can both be crafted into torches like this:

They look like this when placed in the world:

Blaze shards can also be crafted into blaze rods and blaze powder:

All of the new ores except for Blaze Ore and Glow Ore can be crafted into tools and armor. Sapphire, Ruby, Topaz and Amethyst all have the same properties as diamond, White Gold has the same properties as gold, and Copper has the same properties as iron:

There is also a weapon called the Sword of Virtue which is considered to be all powerful, way more so than diamond, but is also very resource heavy to craft:

Glow Blocks and Glow Shards can also be used to smelt, Glow Shards are twice as powerful as coal, and Glow Blocks are ten times more powerful than Shards. It is the same with Blaze Blocks and Blaze Shards:

Obsidian Shards can be crafted like this:

They are used in the crafting of the Sword of Virtue, as well as some experimental items that will hopefully be added soon:

Elves are small human like mobs which drop Blood to be used in crafting the Sword of Virtue:
