«A crystalline gem that goes beyond the earthly world. It shines with condensed hopes and dreams of universes that once existed. »

Protogems (Chinese: 原 石 YuánShí, "Primary Gem") are the prime currency in Genshin Impact. They can be used to:

  • Refill of original resin.
  • Purchase of intertwined Destinations or Encounter of destiny in the Gangas de Paimon, or directly in the Gachapon menu. Each destination costs 160 Protogems.
