Natural Gem Names

Description
This mod replaces the names of the "ember" socketables with names of real-life gemstones/minerals. Here is a list:

Flame Ember => Carnelian
Ice Ember => Aquamarine
Spark Ember => Citrine
Venom Ember => Peridot
Blood Ember => Garnet
Iron Ember => Hematite
Void Ember => Amethyst
Chaos Ember => Obsidian

These particular minerals were chosen mostly for looking similar to the in-game icons. I'm hoping to someday add new socketable gems either as an update to this mod, or, more likely, as a separate mod. This is my explanation for not using the standard "ruby, sapphire, etc."

This mod also changes the names of the tiers. You may remember some of these from the original Torchlight:

Speck => Cracked
Chip => Discolored
Shard => [no descriptor]
[no descriptor] => Polished
Large => Flawless
Huge => Brilliant
Giant => [special prefix that is different for each ember type]

Keep in mind that ember you've already got will keep their original names, but all embers that drop henceforth will use the mod's names. I've also added transmutation recipes that will allow you to "bounce" a single ember/gem. There is a separate recipe for each gem type and tier (there has to be, unforutnately), so be aware that using a lot of these will clutter up the recipes list significantly.

The way these work is simple: you'll get exactly what you put in, but with the new name. The exception is that it will reroll the bonuses on embers that have randomized bonuses (blood, chaos, iron, and void). It is even possible to continue to bounce such an ember until it has preferable bonuses. Will you use this freedom for good or for evil? I trust you.

Sadly, without a mod, you can't upgrade your Embers anymore.
But, like I mentioned, there's a mod out that allows that again.
