    I. Introduction
    ================
    
    This FAQ was made because many people seem to have trouble with finding all of
    the Spirit Gems in the game, so I decided to make it. Please note that you
    shouldn't email me about me being too vague with the locations or something,
    because I did the best I could to type them up. Feel free to email me with
    corrections or something, though. With that said, let the guide begin.

    II. Spirit Gem List
    ====================
    
    In this section, I will list the locations of the Power, Wisdom, and Courage
    Gems in the game. These are also known as Spirit Gems. What are their use, you
    ask? Well, south of Molida Island is a hidden island known as the Spirit
    Island. There, you can trade in your Spirit Gems to gain new abilities for
    Link, which can be really useful. There are 20 of each gem, To find the Spirit
    Island, sail south of Molida Island to locate a hidden island by the three-rock
    formation.
