Description
This simple mod adds quest markers to all 24 of the Stones of Barenziah (Unusual Gems) that you need to find/collect for the "No Stone Unturned" quest.
The markers are only added after you take an "Unusual Gem" to Vex, and she gives you the objective to find all 24 of them.

This mod is also available on the the Skyrim Nexus:
http://skyrim.nexusmods.com/mods/9385
On the nexus you can also find a Russian, Spanish, Italian, French, Polish, German, Japanese and Chinese translation

(If you are interested in translating to your language, please contact me on the Nexus)

========================================================
AN ALTERNATIVE VERSION OF THIS MOD IS AVAILABLE!

________________________________________________________

I hate "find/collect" quests. Boy do I hate find and collect quests.
I am an obsessive completionist, so I have to do them.
But boy do I hate them.

There are two reasons I hate them:
1. There is usually no real hint on how to find the items. You just have to look EVERYWHERE. At least in Oblivion the Nirnroot quest only told you to find some of them, and to look near water. THIS collect quest is horrible. Horrible! Especially in a world the size of Skyrim. Seriously, who would actually be able to find ALL of them without looking them up? If you did, I salute you. I mean, most of them are in major quest locations, but a couple are in completely ordinary dungeons. You'd be lucky if Radiant Story sent you to one of them. Otherwise, what are you supposed to do, besides reach for the walkthrough? Okay, that's enough ranting.
2. I always *try* to do them on my own, and only look them up when I'm nearly finished and there are a couple I just can't find. Then I have a list of locations, and I can never remember which of them I've already collected, and which I haven't. I HATE that part.

So anyway, adding quest markers solves both of the above problems. This turns the quest from a find-and-collect to a simple collect quest. Enjoy.

If you were using an older version of the mod that was glitched:
If you have already encountered the glitch, the stone wall in Tolvald's Cave may stay blocked. TCL through it and the rest of the quest should work fine.

========================================================
NOTE: If you are using the Unofficial Patch or Better Quest Objectives, ensure this mod loads after (lower down) than those two.

If you have done that, and still see no quest markers, consider moving the mod all the way to the bottom of the load order in case it's conflicting with something else I'm not aware of.

It has been reported that Dovahkiin Hideout can cause stones to disappear or not be marked. If you are having trouble and have it installed, try disabling it until you have found the missing stones.

Troubleshooting:
Before you post a comment about quest markers not working, please check that:
1. You have reached the part of the quest where Vex tells you to find the stones
2. You have tried moving the mod to the bottom of your load order - to do this, open the Launcher, click 'Data Files' and drag it to the bottom of the list.
