Spirit Tracks Force Gems
Force Gems are the rewards that Link acquires in the Legend of Zelda Spirit Tracks after completing various side quests. They usually involve Link hauling over ice, lumber, or even Cuccos from one location to another in order to improve the lives of the citizens of New Hyrule. When Link acquires a Force Gem, one of the rail maps will shine, causing new Spirit Tracks to form and often times leading Link to acquiring secret items, heart containers, discovering more rabbits, or finding other secrets.
