You turn unrefined ore into usable materials. Refine ore smelts all metals within the ore into usable ingots, and pulls out all valuable gems without damaging them (though it leaves the gemstones rough and uncut). The amount of ore and gemstones found within the ore is subject to GM discretion.

The spell generates no heat, and the stone that would be left behind after the metal and gems have been extracted is compacted into 1-foot cubes for transportation. Refine ore can only be used on ore that has been mined out and separated from the surrounding stone; you cannot cast it on the walls of a mineshaft and extract any materials, for example.
