Reading the book "On Geomancy" adds a new lesser power "Geomancy" which allows you to break down gems including soul gems to create "Soul Dust" which can be used to imbue the dust of other precious gems with elemental properties for alchemy. Also allows creation of new empty soul gems using fragments and soul dust, and the ability to break down jewelry and transmute metals, ore, and dragon bones and scales for materials.

With the spell-based custom crafting menu, you can break down and craft gems and dust wherever you are!

IMPORTANT: You must locate and read a copy of the book "On Geomancy" in order to acquire the lesser power that brings up the crafting menu. There is a copy near Calcelmo in Understone Keep in Markarth. Hang a left at the main entryway and look on the pedestal near the alchemy and enchanting tables.

UPDATE: The current version gives you a menu to choose from different types of Geomancy, and separates different tasks like breaking down soul gems, refining ore, disenchanting items, or creating dust into separate crafting menus for convenience and clarity. Take a look at this video to get a general idea of these features:



This mod has several features:

Lets you break down filled soul gems of any type into varying quantities of Soul Dust (or Black Soul Dust) which can be used for alchemy, but which are more important for combining with the dust of gems or refined powder from ore/ingots to create ingredients with even more powerful effects. You can also get powders from disenchanting jewelry, and enchanted jewelry will also give Soul Dust.

Lets you break down any precious gem stone and combine it with Soul Dust to create enchanted elemental powder that can be used to create new combinations of alchemy effects for potions and poisons not possible using only vanilla materials.

Lets you create new empty soul gems of any type by breaking down gem fragments to create Fragment Dust, and combining this with a certain quantity of Soul Dust depending on what sort of gem you are creating. These recipes are balanced so that if you break down a filled greater soul gem for example, you will get slightly more soul dust from it than would be required to make a new empty greater soul gem, to make it worth your effort to create new gems to fill! You can also break down any EMPTY soul gem into soul gem fragments.

Lets you break down Ore and Ingots and combine the results with Soul Dust to create refined powdered materials for use in alchemy, which much like the gem dust have their own unique effects.

Lets you break down any standard ring, necklace, or circlet (including enchanted versions) into base powders and dust. Enchanted jewelry will also break down into soul dust giving you another way of acquiring this component aside from breaking down filled gems.

UPDATE: When items appear in your list that can be disenchanted, you will see the item at the bottom as the required item, and the price shown is the total value of all created materials if you break it down. This way you can compare the sell price of the item itself to the value of all components created, and decide whether it is worth it to break the item down or whether you would be better off selling it for gold, if you need money.


In addition to crafting through the new Geomancy menu, you will also find the dust randomly throughout the world, in various places where alchemy ingredients are found (barrels and chests, vendors, on NPC's, etc.) as well as rare recipes for powerful new concoctions. The quality of dust you find will be appropriate for the player and content level. For more information on Geomancy, see the in-game book "On Geomancy." There is a copy near Calcelmo in Understone Keep in Markarth, but it can be found elsewhere throughout the world.

The jar models were built and optimized in Blender to balance file size and resolution. The mesh complexity is comparable to mods like SMIM. The collisions are extremely natural and easy to place precisely in the world for easy shelf stocking.


INSTALLATION

Copy phigeomancy.esp and phigeomancy.bsa to your Skyrim Special Edition->Data folder, and enable it in your mod list. It is highly recommended you use Wrye Bash to create a merged leveled list (Bash Patch) to combine the edits to the random drop locations throughout the world, to ensure the items and books show up. The mod and patches are set up so that if you just leave Wrye Bash set to automatically choose which leveled list to recompile, they will be appropriately detected when you rebuild the batch patch.

SOUL GEMS FROM FRAGMENTS

Soul gem fragments can also be combined to produce whole gems. You must first refine the fragments into Fragment Dust, which can then be recombined to create the unfilled gems. Higher level soul gems may require an additional quantity of Soul Dust, which can also be created through Geomancy, by breaking down filled soul gems. To create each of the various types of soul gems requires:

Petty Soul Gem
  • Soul Gem Fragments x2
Lesser Soul Gem
  • Soul Gem Fragments x2
  • Soul Dust x1
Common Soul Gem
  • Soul Gem Fragments x3
  • Soul Dust x1
Greater Soul Gem
  • Soul Gem Fragments x4
  • Soul Dust x2
Grand Soul Gem
  • Soul Gem Fragments x5
  • Soul Dust x2
Black Soul Gem
  • Soul Gem Fragments x5
  • Black Soul Dust x2


SOUL DUST


The Soul Dust required for most of the soul gem and elemental dust recipes above can also be created through Geomancy by breaking down any filled soul gem. Here are the quantities created for the various qualities of filled soul gems:

Filled Petty Soul Gem
  • Breaks down into Soul Dust x1
Filled Lesser Soul Gem
  • Breaks down into Soul Dust x2
Filled Common Soul Gem
  • Breaks down into Soul Dust x3
Filled Greater Soul Gem
  • Breaks down into Soul Dust x4
Filled Grand Soul Gem
