Lesser Soul Gem is a miscellaneous item in The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion.


Soul Gems are used for harvesting the souls of unsentient creatures and then binding them into the gem. This bound soul can then be used for enchanting weapons and armor, or other purposes of the arcane.

The Lesser Soul Gem is the second smallest size Soul Gem, and can only carry white souls equal or lesser than the "lesser" category. When filled with the best applicable soul, their capacity utilized in enchanting is 300.


Soul Gems are purchasable from most alchemical and magical merchants. They can also be looted from mages and necromancers.
