See Soul Gems for details on soul gem usage and Souls for information on creature souls.
|Petty Soul Gem||Empty
|150||Smallest size of soul gems.|
|Lesser Soul Gem||Empty
|300||Second smallest size of soul gems.
One Lesser Soul Gem is required for Sheogorath's Daedric quest.
|Common Soul Gem||Empty
|800||Middle size of soul gems.|
|Greater Soul Gem||Empty
|1200||Second largest size of soul gems.|
|Grand Soul Gem||Empty
|1600||Largest size of soul gems.
Five empty Grand Soul Gems are required for the Vampire Cure quest.
|Black Soul Gem||Empty
|1600||Special soul gems that can capture NPC souls as well as creatures; see Black Soul Gems for details.
Note: These IDs and values are set at the time you acquire a soul gem, and do not get changed when you fill the soul gem with a soul. In other words, if you pick up an empty grand soul gem, its value will be 200 gold. That value does not change when you fill it. Therefore, you can end up with grand soul gems containing grand souls with two different values, both 200 gold and 500 gold.

Clutter items are almost completely useless, as they usually have no function and the few that have any value sell for very little gold.
