I'm having trouble obtaining it for the Rare Lagiacrus armor. Is there a specific way of getting it?

Break both parts on its spine and carve it.Also obtained as an quest reward.

Jewel/Gem are supposed to be rare but it is one of the easiest rare item that drops like candies especially when you dont need it.

Im having much much harder times with Ceadeus sub's Hair,luckly it is a G1 pushover.

There are actually two kinds of Sand Jewels that are dropped from Jhen. Though for some reason I can't seem to get the one that's needed for the torso armor piece of Rare Lagi.

There isnt other way around it.Killing it and carve from it yeilds the best chance.Desire sensor is messing with you i guess.

I got 2 of it in my box and im still deciding what should i make.

Did you mean Jhen's Earth Heavenly Jewel?

You can just carve it off G rank Jhen or G rank Crystal Jhen. You get them in the quest rewards too and for breaking both tusks.

Yeah I meant that. I guess I'll have to opt to repelling and breaking his tusks.

If you want to kill them and get the carvings. There is a 50 min version of Crystal Jhen , and the new 50 min version of G rank Jhen as DL quests. There are 8 carves per JM. So it is worth going for the kill. But the downside is that you have to watch for ship status.

I can't seem to kill either of those on my own. Is there a particular strategy that you would recommend?

Nice.

I used Bracchi Hammer.

Hammer is the best weapon for breaking the cracks on the fin. Which is going to help in reduce JM's HP during phase 1.

This is the only thing I don't like the game, Bracchi weapons are just universal replacement for every single elements. Bombardier skill is easiest to activate. And they're way overused.
