This question already has an answer here:

I have a ton of the Unusual Gem items stuck in my inventory.
It was a long evening, and I have lost the chance to go back to a save point before I picked up the No Stone Unturned quest.

These stupid rocks are taking up 12 "pounds" in my inventory and I have no interest in completing it.

Is there any way for me to drop this quest or lose the super-heavy quest items? A game mod? A dirty-letter campaign to the game designer? Voodoo witchcraft? Anything?

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

actually quest items, despite saying they have a weight, actually has no weight. Anyway, are you on the PC or a console? – l I Aug 10 '12 at 21:51
As mentioned in my post, I am playing on a PS3 console. Are you sure they have no weight??? That's great news! Because I couldn't drop the item, there was no way for me to test. Thanks! – theJollySin Aug 10 '12 at 21:55
yes, you can easily check though by finding a container and dumping all your stuff there and then seeing what your encumbrance is – l I Aug 10 '12 at 21:58
@yx If you would post that as an answer, I will accept it. It is not exactly what I was asking, but it solves my concern. – theJollySin Aug 10 '12 at 22:00

From the quest items page on the skyrim wiki:

While quest items do display a weight, they do not use up the inventory's available space.

So you don't have to worry about quest items sitting in your inventory :)

You are indeed right, would you be willing to edit my "answer" into yours for PC users that might stumble upon this question? In that case I'll delete my answer :) – Assile Aug 10 '12 at 22:15
@assile there's no need, your answer does provide additional info so there's no reason why it shouldn't be left there – l I Aug 11 '12 at 1:06
Ok, in that case we'll do it that way :) – Assile Aug 11 '12 at 8:41

You are indeed stuck with the gems without the use of console or mod if you cannot complete the quest.

There may be a mod that makes them weightless (I cannot search the steam workshop myself the coming few days).

And as @yx suggested, you can use the console if you are on PC with the command player.removeitem 0009dfbb 24.

However, since you seem to have 24 of them I'd suggest trying to turn the quest in. I do not know about the 'not having weight' since they seem to weigh me down.

quest items have no weight, so no mods are needed see my comment above. Besides, he's on PS3 so no mods or console available. – l I Aug 10 '12 at 21:59
