I've stockpiled a bunch of the flawless gems, as well as gold/silver nuggets, and so far haven't found a single use for them(Other than using a transmutation scroll on the nuggets.). Should I just sell these or is there actually a use for them?

They're not used for much. You should probably just sell them if you want the extra gold.

The mod Geomancy is merged into OOO, but you can get it separately as well:

http://www.tesnexus.com/downloads/file.php?id=9580

"Geomancy lets the player use precious gemstones as "spell amplifiers", allowing them to cast extremely powerful spells for little magicka, but destroying a gem in the process. Gem Dust allows the player grind gemstones to dust for use in alchemy (as per TES3:Morrowind)."

ooh, didn't know that was part of OOO ... makes it even more of a reason that i'll be installing it at some point (or FCOM).

I was hoping a couple weeks ago on this board that there was some kind of "smithy" mod that would allow you to forge armor/weapons out of some of the ore you can find in oblivion (kind of like madness/amber in SI)

it would be cool if the gems allowed you to inset items in the same fashion ... oh well, i'll just keep hoping that a master modder will read my mind and make it happen.........

if you use midas magic & get the ooo plugin, gold & some gems become useful.

also, i believe just with the geomancy, you can crush the gems into dust for new potion ingredients.
