A Grand Soul Gem is an item in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.


Soul gems are used for enchanting weapons and armor at an arcane enchanter or recharging previously enchanted weapons. After using a soul gem (with the exclusion of Azura's Star and The Black Star) it is destroyed. The grand soul gem is the largest soul gem that can be obtained in the game. A filled gem is also required to craft an arcane enchanter in a homestead if the Hearthfire add-on is installed.


Soul gems are purchasable from most alchemical and magical merchants. They can also be looted from mages and necromancers. They are also obtainable by mining geode vein in Blackreach.
