At the very start of the game you'll begin in a subway entrance. To the left of the Item box is a strange looking clock you can interact with, although you won't have thing to use with it initially. As you explore you'll find Fancy Boxes, which when examined will reveal a red, green, or blue gem inside. These can then be fitted into the clock, revealing a reward each time from the panel at the front.

You'll find the Resident Evil 3 red jewel in the safe room at the Downtown Donut Shop. It's just on the right in a purple box as you enter the room. Examine it until you find the catch which will reveal the prompt to open it and reveal the red gem. Fitting that into the subway clock will earn you the stock for the shotgun.

The Resident Evil 3 blue gem is inside the red-fronted supermarket, Downtown. You'll need the bolt cutters to pop the chain holding it shut, which you'll get just after putting the fire out and reaching the repair shop. Again the gem is inside a purple fancy box you'll need to examine to get at the gem. It's right in front the door as you enter. Fitting that into the subway clock will earn you a Inventory Pouch to expand you storage slots.

The resident Evil 3 green gem is inside the toy shop opposite the supermarket where you can find the blue jewel. You'll need the lock pick before you can get in though, which you'll find on a body just outside the power station while following the 'Reactivate power at the substation' objective. Once you can get it in it will be on the counter on the left as you go in. Fitting this into the subway clock will get you a grenade.
