1. WHAT ARE OCULI?

In Lemuria, the world of "Child of Light", Oculi are special gemstones that 
give added strength or abilities when equipped. (Though not used in-game, the 
single form should be "oculus".)
The glowing switches that Igniculus activates are also referred to as oculi.

In our world, "oculus" is the Latin word for "eye", and an architectural term 
for a circular opening in a building's roof or wall. 
For more detail, see Wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oculus

===============================================================================
===============================================================================

2. CRAFTING OCULI

Oculi are found in treasure chests and dropped by enemies throughout the game. 
However, to get more varied and powerful types, you will need to craft them. 

You can combine two or three oculi at a time. There are two simple rules:

  1. Merging three identical oculi will create a stronger form of that colour.

  2. Mixing certain colours of oculi will create new colours.

Whether you merge oculi or mix colours first, it will not affect the overall 
amount or type of simple oculi required to create a complex one.


In more detail:

 MERGING OCULI TO CREATE STRONGER FORMS

 3 raw oculi = 1 tumbled 
   3 tumbled = 1 faceted (= 9 raw)
   3 faceted = 1 brilliant (= 27 raw)


 MIXING COLOURS TO CREATE NEW OCULI

The oculi being mixed need to be the same quality, and the resulting oculus 
will also be that quality.

 Tourmaline  =  Sapphire  +  Emerald
   (teal)        (blue)      (green)

  Amethyst   =    Ruby    +  Sapphire
  (purple)        (red)       (blue)

   Citrine   =    Ruby    +  Emerald
   (gold)         (red)      (green)

   Diamond   =  Sapphire  +    Ruby    +  Emerald
   (white)       (blue)        (red)      (green)

    Onyx     = Tourmaline +  Amethyst  +  Citrine
   (black)       (teal)      (purple)     (gold)

   Spinel    =  Diamond   +   Onyx
   (brown)      (white)      (black)

Note that the colour mixing follows the rules for colours of light rather than 
paint: primaries of red, blue and green, merging to white.


 SPECIAL CASE: THE PRINCESS STONE

There is one further oculus that can only be created at the highest level: 
combine a Brilliant Diamond, Brilliant Onyx and Brilliant Spinel to create 
a Princess Stone.

3. VALUE CHART

Each type of oculus can be "valued" by how many basic oculi - raw sapphires, 
rubies and emeralds - are required to craft it.

            |  Sapphire  | Tourmaline |            |            |            |

            |            |            |            |            |            |
 -----------+------------+------------+------------+------------+------------+
            |            |            |            |            |            |
  Brilliant |     27     |     54     |     81     |    162     |    243     |
            |            |            |            |            |            |
