You can't mine them. THe only places to get them is sending the ships to Pirate's Tomb, when they get an upgrade, VERY rarely from Hunters for Hire, and apparently very rarely from certain quest. (Diablos i think, either hi or low rank in port.)

Even if you get them, you still need rare g-rank stuff to turn them into Tru Armor Spheres. Either Meldspar Ore of Flutterflies. Easier to mine in the volcano, really.

Apparently, much later, the peddler lady will get a stock upgrade that sells armor stones, but for now, no dice.

You can kill 3 birds with one stone if you just go mining in G Rank Volcano with a Gathering Set. You'll get a lot of Hvy and Tru Armor Spheres, Allfire Stones/Meldspar Ores, and potentially good charms. Trade the Allfire Stones and Meldspar Ores for resources. I believe they go for 150 a piece but you'll have multiple stacks before you know it.

You need to max the boat to level 3 and wait for a special condition that gives the boat an extra star. Honestly not worth it because that condition is very uncommon.

by gathering set you mean gathering skill +10 with talysman and decoration, or a specific armor?

thanks.. i being farming the volcano with no luck, so maybe thats what i need.

and thatll be great then if i can mine the spheres and then transform the meldspar into resources (no other crazy use for them e.g. awesome upcoming arnor set?) that will be awesome!!
thanks so much sir.

Yes, like the starting Leather armor is a decent gathering set as it has Gathering+1, Whim, and Spd Gathering and has enough slots to make Gathering+2 easily. Ultimately you would probably want to get the Azurous X set with a Charmer+4 charm at least. With that you can get Gathering+2, Whim, Spd Gathering, Charm Hunter (20% chance of getting 2 charms instead of 1 when gathering). Incidentally there is a pitifully easy G Rank quest where you fight 2 Azurous that you could probably solo in a matter of minutes.
