Skyrim: All Stones of Barenziah locations

I have to be honest with you, when I stumbled upon any of the “Unusual Gems” you find across Skyrim, I had no idea I was sitting on a passive gold mine. These “Unusual Gems” are actually the Stones of Barenziah, and while they cost 200 Septim individually, together they will provide a far better reward. They are scattered across the Skyrim hold regions, so make sure to follow both the table and the map below to find them.
