Alexandrite10,000 GLevel 50, 100, 150, 200, 210, 220, 230, 240, and 250 to 255

Alexandrite will change color whether you are inside (red) or outside (green). The only thing you can find on levels 50, 100, 150, and 200 is Alexandrite, but the gem is so rare that you might only find one piece of it or possibly none at all. Convienently, the Lake Mine elevator stops at the Alexandrite levels. The easiest elevator level to hunt for Alexandrite is level 100, where there are no pesky pitfalls to be found that would interrupt your search for the elusive gem.

Pitfalls

There are fewer pitfall-enabled levels in the Lake Mine than in the Spring Mine, but the chance of stumbling over a hidden pitfall increases the further down into the mine you go.

You will have to move one floor at a time at many points during your descent of the Lake Mine, so bring lots of food to eat for stamina recovery.

Other Notable Items in the Lake Mine

Power Berry

This stamina-increasing item is located in the dirt on level 19. Dig it up using your hoe.

Fishing Pond

There is a doorway on level 9 that leads to a hidden underground pond. This is where you can catch the Coelacanth, a legendary fish king that lives in the pond. You will need to have a level 6 (cursed/blessed) or level 7 (mythic) fishing pole, and have caught at least 5 of the other whopper fish kings before you can successfully catch the Coelacanth.

Statues

There is one decorative statue hidden in the dirt within the Lake Mine. You can find the Kappa Statue hidden in the dirt on levels 101 to 120. The statue can be placed on the trophy shelf inside of your farmhouse, though it doesn't bring any benefits and can't be sold.

Kappa Jewels

The 9 round orbs are located in the rocks on:

Cursed Tools

Before these will appear within the dirt on specific mine levels, you will need to have your six farm tools (hoe, hammer, watering can, sickle, fishing pole, and axe) remodeled to Mithril level. You can then go digging for the cursed tools on the following floors:

You won't find any pitfalls on the levels where a cursed tool has a random chance of appearing. If you're looking for these special items, the best way to handle the randomess is to save your game on the level before the cursed tool level and use the single-level down ladder to reach the cursed tool's location. That way if you don't locate the tool, you can reload your save game and take another attempt at it.
