Skylanders Spyro's Adventure soul gem locations guide

Gem #1: Shattered Island

Unlocks: Chop Chop’s “Cursed Bone Brambler” Ability

Proceed through the level until you reach a pair of turtles in blocking a bridge. Push the first turtle to the left, and push the second turtle as far forward as you can.

Now push the same turtle to the left twice to fill the gap, creating a bridge.

Run down the slope and use Spyro to unlock the Magic gate.

Cross the bridge to the Turtle Hideout. Push turtle A to the left, and push turtle B forward twice. Head up the slope to grab your first Soul Gem.
