I must have gotten really lucky because I have like 5 gems from every monster. It's like I get at least one every time I hunt.
Try using the palico plunderblade. It'll help your chances.
Dude going by my experience you got mega lucky if you have that many. Because when I say it took over 30 fights I’m not even exaggerating, and with each fight averaging 15-20mins, that’s hours just to get ONE gem.
