Emerald (エメラルド emerarudo ) is a key item in Resident Evil 3: Nemesis. Before checking, the name of this item is "Green Gem" (緑の宝石 midori no hōseki ).
This gem is the necessary item for opening the Raccoon City Hall, which is locked by the automatic mechanism - the clock, that opens the gate only in operating hours.
Initially, the clock, that contains twelve different gems lacks two of them. One is emerald, and the other one is sapphire.
"A clock is not functioning. Two gems are missing from the hour plate." says the clock, when it is explored for the first time.
"It seems that this is not enough to make the device to work" says message after setting one of the gems. The gem disappears from the inventory after setting and can be seen on the clock.
This gem has two possible locations, depending on where Jill has met Carlos in the game. If Carlos was at the restaurant, then the gem's location is at The Raccoon Press. If Carlos was at the press office, then the gem will be in the restaurant basement.
