Soul Gems are used for resurrecting yourself and your allies, as well as keeping weapons and armor enchanted.[1] In order to fill a soul gem, the Soul Trap ability must be used. The highest rank of this ability will automatically place Soul Trap on the player's weapon.[1]

The following table shows the original Soul Gem information. It has since been updated. As of Update 12, all Soul Gems were replaced with Grand Soul Gems, as One Tamriel removed the need for level-based content. If was further updated in Update 14, renaming them all to Soul Gems.
