Final Fantasy 15 Dino stone locations for The Aspiring Artisan, A Stone-Studded Stunner, Reliable Royalty, No Pain, No Gem and A Treasure Beyond Measure

Where to find the valuable stones for journalist Dino.

You first meet Dino in Final Fantasy 15 very early in the course of the story, but returning to him later opens up a series of fetch quests. The first few are pretty simple - head for the marker, locate the ore he's after, and return to him - but the last one is beat left until after you've finished the main story.

Each one gives you a dollop of EXP and a Bracelet, which each one offering increased strength over the previous mission.

Need more help? Our Final Fantasy 15 guide and walkthrough can provide tips on main story, as well as the open-world's many quests and activities. Learning how to get AP fast, EXP fast and money or Gil fast will aid you in many optional dungeons and tombs - including how to open and explore their locked doors. There's also plenty of interesting side-quests, too, such as the Scraps of Mystery and Professors Protege frog locations. And if you want to get around easier, you can rent a Chocobo, learn the infinite sprint trick and later in the game, get the flying car Regalia Type F. There's also more to see and do with DLC, such as Episode Gladiolus and Episode Prompto.

A Treasure Beyond Measure stone location

Emerald Stone location in A Treasure Beyond Measure

You'll find this as you explore Costlemark Tower, which we have a walkthrough for in that previous link.

It's specifically located after you descend a couple of long spiral ramps - there are more pockets of enemies along the way, but you'll eventually reach the bottom. Head through the exit in the north wall, crawl through the small gap, and turn left into the corridor. The Emerald Stone will be in this room.
