He claims he doesn't know anything about gem smuggling—says his warehouse was broken into the night after we intercepted that load eight months back." Alverez shrugged.
Он утверждает, что о контрабанде драгоценностей ничего не знает; говорит, что его склад разнесли в ту ночь, когда мы брали груз восемь месяцев назад, – пожал плечами Альварес.

A perpetual aurora borealis in gem-bright colors, captured in weightless globes the size of tennis balls, hovering to no apparent purpose…
Это северное сияние из ярких цветов, заключенное в невесомые шары размером с теннисный мяч, которые зависли за окном вроде бы без особой на то цели…

The true nature and purpose of the sacred gem was known only to the highest ranking among those serving within the Temple, and the sailor high atop the main mast asked no questions.
Истинная природа и предназначение священного камня были известны только верховным жрецам храма, и матрос на верхушке мачты не проявлял ненужного любопытства.

Again Ghwerig started to his feet and looked with alarm at his left hand, but he was reassured by the presence there of a ring which looked for all the world like one of the pair which he had fashioned from the shards of the flower-gem.
Снова тролль вскочил на ноги, с тревогой глядя на свою левую руку, и опять был обманут видом поддельного кольца.

"Mr. McChesney," he would be saying when a subordinate appeared, "this is Mr. Henry, the young man who sent in that exquisite gem about the sparrows in Madison Square.
– Мистер Макчесни, – должен бы он сказать появившемуся в дверях подчиненному, – познакомьтесь, этот молодой человек – мистер Генри, тот самый, что прислал нам такую прелестную жемчужину о воробьях на Мэдисон-сквере.

"Immortality was the prize Zhengyi offered to the dragons," Entreri said. "The gem you took from the book—the second one, not the one from Herminicle's tower—would prove intriguing for our dragon friends, would it not?"
– Женги предлагал драконам бессмертие, – продолжал Энтрери. – Разве наших приятельниц- дракониц не заинтересует камень, вырванный из книги? Я говорю о втором камне, а не о том, что ты взял в башне Герминикля.

The dwarf kept coming forward, leaning over so near to the studious man that the long braids of his beard and the gem-studded ties settled in Canthan's lap.
Дворф наклонился так близко к тщедушному Кантану, что пряди его длинной бороды и ленточки с камнями, перехватывающие косицы, задели колени мага.

Believe me, my dear Hector, were I to walk up the High Street of Fairport, displaying this inestimable gem in the eyes of each one I met, no human creature, from the provost to the town-crier, would stop to ask me its history.
Поверьте мне, дорогой Гектор, пройдись я по фейрпортской Хай-стрит, показывая эту бесценную камею всем встречным, никто из них — от мэра до городского глашатая — не остановит меня, чтобы расспросить о ее происхождении.

Spectral illumination - far too much to come from the one tiny gem in my cheek - bathed the steps.
Спектральная иллюминация, слишком сильная для какого‑то камушка в щеке, омывала ступени.

The stories which that person imparted to me regarding his relatives who inhabited the gem above-mentioned, were such as used to make my young blood curdle with horror to think there should be so much wickedness in the world.
Истории, которые имел обыкновение рассказывать мне мой друг о своих родственниках, населявших означенную жемчужину, были таковы, что моя юная кровь стыла у меня в жилах, когда я представлял себе, какие невероятные гнусности творятся на белом свете.

"So you're trying to tell us that one of the primitive, superstitious locals would part with a shard of some half-legendary gem, from one of his own temples, for a lousy bottle of liquor?"
— Вы хотите сказать, что примитивный, суеверный туземец, владеющий осколком некой полулегендарной драгоценности из одного из своих храмов, отдал его в обмен на какую-то вшивую бутылку спиртного?

As a gem it's not very impressive… not faceted or even trimmed for cutting.
Как драгоценность он особого впечатления не производит… Без огранки, даже не отшлифован.
