|Armor rating||8 ()|
Inheriting the protection and damage reduction of the Red Matter Chestplate, the Gem Chestplate also protects the wearer completely from fire and lava, and enables the wearer to create and fire explosions.
Gem Armor has no durability thus cannot be damaged while being worn.
The claimed 90% damage reduction is taken from the Equivalent Exchange 2 documentation. It's unverified if ProjectE provides the same feature.
