@Christian - the crystal gem is sitting up on one of the hills surrounding that pool area. it is to the left of the main building.

Sorry, but I can't get past the opening area. I get to the first cave where there's a barred entrance but I can't seem to get anywhere from there. I am no novice player so it's very frustrationg. Help!! :bigcry:

@ Walter - there was a JS to pull upon arrival and there are a couple of caves to explore beyond where the bird first attacks.

Sorry, yes, I already pulled the switch. I just can't seem to see how to get to the other caves. I've tried shimmying, jumping, praying and nothing works.
The flat spot where the bird first attacks has some overhangs but i can't grab them.

You can grab the overhanging edge with a standing jump from the farthest edge of the triangular ledge where you killed the bird... And to open the first bared gate at the cave, look at the opening directly opposite the cave mouth with the gate...

Thanks. As long as I know that's what I need to do I will persist until I get it or fail to do so!
Thanks for your help. :D

this may be redundant - there are 2 caves that can be accessed from that ridge where the bird attacks. one Lara gets to via the overhang, the other is approached by jumping to it.

This is what worked for me... From overhanging rocks you should try to jump onto the triangular flat block to the left of the cave mouth, and from there into the cave. Look at the screenshot... Good luck!

Thanks, mugs, got it.
(Angry about myself): What effect has placing the gem to it's receptacle?
I can't find anything changed...

A door has been opened underwater to the left (you can only access the room from the other side though, from the smaller part of water).

smaller part of water?
If I return to the uw-section with blades (which is to the left) there are no changes to be seen, the gate in the small water-hole near the pushable boulder is still closed.... :cry:

BTW: Another great game!!!


EDIT: I reloaded an earlier save, placed the gem again and now the gate is open. (Bug?)

Thanks :)
With left, I meant exactly to the left. When facing the receptacle turn left and if you swim while you can you will see a switch. It was blocked by a door previously, but now you can access it from the other side.
