Ancient Statues are structures found in the Ruins and part of the remnants of the Ancient Civilization.

When mined, they will drop a Gem and 1 Thulecite, plus a 5% chance of 1 extra Thulecite. The color of gem that drops will be the same type that appears on the statue, either in the staff or at the base. If the statue does not have a gem embedded in it, it will drop Nightmare Fuel in its place.

In Don't Starve, the color changes when reloading the game or travelling to the cave level and back. This makes it possible to choose which gems the statues will drop when mined; gemless statues will remain gemless however.

The appearance of the statues change depending on the current phase of the Ruin's Nightmare Cycle. They emit light during all phases, except "Calm". At the most intense state, the statues will be covered in Nightmare Fuel and gain a hazy glowing quality (though their light radius does not increase).  If mined during the Nightmare phase, there is a 30% chance for a Nightmarebeak or Crawling Nightmare to spawn, with equal chances.
