My sim is doing the adventure for one of the keystones to the place where you can get Pangu's Axe. I'm at the part where the special merchant asks me to go find some Lapis Lazuli. But I looked on the map and there is no lapis lazuli ANYWHERE?
Suggestions?

This is a strange one that happened to me, too. I just ended up visiting the market and purchasing some from the relics merchant.

Gems aren't always available. Sometimes you have to wait for them to spawn, which may take a day or longer, depending on the number and scarcity of the gem you need.

I've found a few pieces before in China, have you got the Collection Helper? It's in with all the wishes and things, this may help as it shows all the rocks and gems in the area.

Blast me away.

I cancelled out of it when that happened to me, then started having my Sims grab some every time it showed up either in an excavation, on the ground or at the relic merchant. Then I had some when it came up again.

Gems seem to spawn at least twice a day, or else they spawn in the early morning hours (only). I've noticed many times when my sims are on the hunt for wealth by collecting obscene amounts of mineral wealth that some of the rocks I was heading for disappeared in the morning and new sites appeared. (The collection helper is your friend [edit: weird interaction between the last colon of the wink code and the close parenthesis])

Often, when I'm on a quest for a specific mineral I turn off the collection helper because the quest shows me where to find that specific mineral (and only that specific mineral). The collection helper (IMNSHO) is more useful when you're just looking for general wealth.
