Unusual Gem??

I have four of these what purpose do they serve? I know I have to take one of them to an appraiser in Riften, other than that are they related to any other quests?

That's it's own quest, they're called Barenziah's stones and there's 24 of them. I don't know what happens when you get all of them - I only have 6 - but I'm hoping you get something pretty good cause they're scattered all over skyrim.

*minor spoilers*

there are 24 of them, when you find them you get a quest to find a crown, then you put it back together and display it in the thieves guild

I just wiki'd it, if you get all 24 you are awarded a perk that increases your chances of finding a gem in chests!

Specifically, talk to the girl with white hair in the Ragged Flaggon. You gotta go through the Ratways under Riften. I think her name is Vex.
