the elder scrolls 5 skyrim - Where can you acquire massive amounts of Soul Gems? - Arqade
Soul gems are an essential component to successfully imbuing magical properties to an item or weapon in a process called Enchanting. The quality of the soul gem affects the potency of the resulting enchantment. Filled soul gems can be found throughout the world, but can also be created through the spell Soul Trap. Another way to easily fill soul gems is by getting the Conjuration skill Soul Stealer , which automatically makes bound weapons cast Soul Trap. Filling Soul Gems necessitates the use of the spell Soul Trap or its similar enchantments on items and weapons. With the spell, you need to cast it on the non-humanoid target before its death so that its soul can be plucked and transferred into the smallest available Soul Gem in your inventory. The quality of the Soul Gem depends on the creature's level.

Soul Gems are naturally-occurring magic stones that house the souls of the dead. Used for enchanting weapons and armor at an arcane enchanter or for recharging previously enchanted weapons, soul gems come in various sizes and strengths: petty , lesser , common , greater , grand and black. Capturing souls in soul gems is typically done with the Soul Trap spell of the Conjuration school of Magicka , or with a weapon that has received such an enchantment. Soul gems can be obtained by slaying mages, magically-affiliated enemies , by purchasing them from magic shops and court wizards , mining geode veins or found as randomized loot in containers.
