Crash Bandicoot N Sane Trilogy Gems Locations Guide will help you find all colored gems in the remastered version of Crash Bandicoot which was just released on the PS4 as the Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy. It has three games bundled together on a single disc. As you play the game, you will come across different gems that you can collect to unlock achievements.
These are not your regular find-and-collect-type of gems. Before getting these gems, you will first need to complete some tasks. There are two main types of gems in the game. The first ones are the Colored Gems while the others are the Clear Gems.

Crash Bandicoot N Sane Trilogy Gems Locations
To obtain colored gems you will need to complete some challenging tasks and then later you can obtain the clear gems as well which require you to clear a level after destroying all the crates. This method of obtaining gems is similar to all three games.
Breaking up boxes to obtain gems might sound easy, however, it is not. Expect many deaths in trying to accomplish this feat and some of the colored gems require you to clear certain areas without dying. This guide will tell you how to obtain all the gems along with the locations where you need to complete the tasks.
In our N. Sane Trilogy Gems Locations Guide, we’ve detailed everything you need to know about collecting all the Colored Gems in Crash Bandicoot.
The following tables contain the gem colors along with their locations and the challenges needed to obtain the gems from all three games.
Crash Bandicoot Gems
Each stage has 1 gem, unlocked by smashing all the crates. Levels that get you the white gem can be completed even after losing a life, but for coloured gems, it must be a perfect run without losing a life. In special levels however, you can die as many times as you like and still get the gems.
