Can be used to create Refined weapons through Blacksmith Andre in Firelink Shrine.

Infusing a weapon with a Refined Gem will increase the scaling bonuses from both Strength and Dexterity, without compromising one or the other, while also equalizing their scaling. While it does also lower the weapon's base damage slightly, the improved scaling bonuses, in most cases, will result in an overall damage increase.

Refined infusions are a solid choice if a player is utilizing a quality build, where Strength and Dexterity are leveled equally. Furthermore, Refined weapons are still able to be fully buffed by resins, bundles, or spells.
