    Are there any examples of the mystical properties possessed by certain jewels? The wikia says Topaz is good for anti-spirit tasks, though I'm not sure where this is actually mentioned in the VN. Do we have any information about other jewels?

    I may have already asked this, and if so, I apologise, but does King Hassan let his targets know the crimes for which they're being executed, or does he just sneak in, kill, and sneak out?

    I think it's in the prologue, when Rin tries to attack Saber with a spell?

    His very presence lets them know that they fucked up.

    Seeing their life flash before their eyes probably covers the rest.

    Tell them their crimes? No since he didn't do it for Ozy. But he does need to show himself to the people he's targeting before he can attack.

    It's less he shows himself and more that the person being targeted knows that King Hassan is there to kill them.

    Topaz is mentioned in the prologue as the gem Rin uses for her wind spell against Saber, which makes it likely but not certain that it's naturally wind-aligned. She also uses a topaz to blow up Caster's minions in UBW. Neither case seems to mention a particular effectiveness against spirits.

    - I take from my pocket a topaz with a wind spell stored in it. Then, I launch all the magic energy it contains at her without processing it … !
    This thing, which can blow away a house without a trace, is a bundle of wind spells I've stocked up over time.
    It's one of the ten jewels I've been putting my magical energy into for seventeen years without rest.
    (Prologue, Day 3)


    - Tohsaka jumps out in front of me and throws a jewel at the bone creatures.

    "Ein Körper ist ein Körper!"

    She fills my vision with pure white.

    "----"
    That must have been some sort of release spell.
    There is no sign of destruction in the hallway, and only the scattered remains of the bone creatures are there.

    "Thanks, you helped me out. I rarely use the topaz, so it took me some time to get it ready."
    (UBW; Day 7; Command Spell, second time)


    The only other instance of a particular gem I have noted is that Rin's little owl familiar is made of amethyst.

    - It is the corpse of an owl.
    It is a bird made from crystal. It is simple, but suited for spying, and must have been made by Archer's Master.
    "…Heh, that lady is unlucky. I could have made her my student if she were less talented."
    She steps on it.
    The amethyst crystals are crushed to powder, scattering star-like dust.
    (UBW, Interlude 11-2)

    other than what seika said
    the same jewel is going to correspond to different things depending on the foundation you're running.
    That's mentioned in case files 1 when luvia is doing the dowsing.
    get googling some new age stuff

    Literally the previous page in default page size.

    probably still better than most humans

And Archer vs Caster points out that even Shirou can detect it when it's right in front of him.
