Wisdom Gems are items in Phantom Hourglass.[1]

Location and Uses

By collecting 10 Wisdom Gems, the Spirit of Wisdom increases Link's defense while allowing him to stun weaker enemies by walking into them. Getting all 20 quadruples the defense ratio. If the Spirit of Wisdom is equipped, less time will be lost from the Phantom Hourglass when hit by a Phantom; 15 seconds with ten Wisdom Gems, or only five seconds with all 20.
