Location and Uses

The sprite for the Smooth Gem

The Smooth Gem is a mystical stone used by the Zora Queen, Oren, to contain her powers and prevent herself from growing gigantic.[3]

After Yuga seals Hyrule Castle, Link is able to travel to Zora's Domain, where he discovers that the Queen's gem was stolen by the Shady Guy.[4] Link must track the thief to Kakariko Village and confront him. Explaining that he was unaware of the Smooth Gem's importance, the Shady Guy gives Link the Pegasus Boots out of remorse,[5] but is unable to return the Smooth Gem because he has already sold it to the Street Merchant.[6] In order to return it to Oren, Link must purchase it for 200 Rupees and present it to her in Zora's Domain. Afterwards, Oren rewards him with the Zora's Flippers out of gratitude.
