Finding The 4 Jewels

Find 4 Jewels To Light The 4 Towers


During the Yellow Streamer section of the game, you will have to find 4 Jewels strewn across the desert and slot them into 4 towers. Doing so will open the path to a new area.

Triangle Tower And Jewel

Triangle Tower Location

Triangle Jewel Hint Explanation

Ancient Slab Text
Beneath the feet of twins entwined in needles, there, the eye you'll find!

Twins entwined in needles refers to the two cacti close to each other in Sandpaper West.

Round Tower And Jewel

Round Tower Location

Round Tower

The Round Tower is located in the Scorching Sandpaper Far West zone.

Round Jewel Location


The Round Jewel is found at the lake in Shroom City. Line up the moon with the round part of the tower (in the lake's reflection) and then dig.

Round Jewel Hint Explanation

Ancient Slab Text
Eclipse the sun above the lake... A buried eye is yours to take.

Eclipsing refers to making the black sun line up with the similarly circular dome of Shroom city. This has to be done in the lake. The eye is buried, so you'll need to use Professor Toad to help you dig it up.

Diamond Tower And Jewel

Diamond Tower Location

Diamond Tower

The Diamond Tower is located Scorching Sandpaper Desert zone, in the left side of the area, close to the entrance to Sandpaper Minor.

Diamond Jewel Location


The Diamond Jewel is located in the Scorching Sandpaper Desert, at the left foot of the diamond tower.

Diamond Jewel Hint Explanation

Ancient Slab Text
To find my eye would be a feat... Unless you look around my feet.

The Diamond Jewel's hint refers to how the "eye" (jewel) of the tower is right at its base, near a stone block which looks like the tower's foot.

Square Tower And Jewel

Square Tower Location

Square Tower

The Square Tower is located in the Scorching Sandpaper Far East zone.

Square Jewel Location


This one is located in the Scorching Sandpaper East zone, in the upper right part of the ruins. You have to get Professor Toad to dig it up for you.

Square Jewel Hint Explanation

Ancient Slab Text
Near walls of waves, a fire's place... An eye is there, by earth encased!

The walls of waves here refer to the inscriptions seen on the ruins. "Fire's place" refers to the ruins of a hearth/fireplace. "Earth encased" naturally means that you'll have to ask Professor Toad to dig up the treasure from the ground.

Other Table Hint

Hotel Mural Hint

Hotel Mural Text
When all four Toads align their eyes, a shroomy temple shall arise!
Above the desert mushrooms rise, go spark a flame within their eyes.
Find six devout and gather all... The fire spirit they will call!
To meet the Vellumental same... The ritual is like a game... The six devout will back this claim!

The Hotel Mural text is mainly there to get you to figure out how to open up the way to the Fire Vellumental Cave, and then the Temple of Shrooms. It doesn't necessarily have any bearing on the location of the 4 Jewels.
