  • One can be found in the Tower Section of Blind Cliff Cave.
  • There is one located in an urn inside of the Shrine of Mehrunes Dagon. (This may be a leveled occurrence, however it has not been confirmed. The Shrine of Mehrunes Dagon is known to have different loot based on level)
  • There is one near the Shrine of Mehrunes Dagon. Take the side path to the left and follow it up the mountain, then look for a small altar on the right.

  • Temple of Dibella's Inner Sanctum on a bookshelf.
  • Two may be found in the Snow Veil Catacombs. These can be collected at any time but also during the "Speaking With Silence" Thieves Guild quest.

Grab the dagger and remove it. The pedestal will activate and open a passage to a hidden treasure. Next to the chest is a Flawless Amethyst.

Corpse lootEdit



  • Talen-Jei employs the Dragonborn to find three Flawless Amethysts, which will be faceted into a wedding band. The reward for fetching them all is a weak poison.
