The Clear Gem (also called the White Gem in some early material) is the most common type of gem in the Crash Bandicoot series. In most games, a clear gem is acquired if the player manages to break all the crates in a level. From Crash Bandicoot 2: Cortex Strikes Back onwards, it can also be a reward for completing a secret area.

In Crash Bandicoot: The Wrath of Cortex, the color and shape of the clear gem obtained through completing a hidden objective or a secret area are slightly different to the one obtained through breaking all the level's crates, being darker and smaller.

In Crash Twinsanity, clear gems are functionally identical to colored gems. One clear gem is hidden throughout each level, unlocking a brief video clip in the concept art menu when collected.

In Crash Bandicoot Purple: Ripto's Rampage, clear gems are awarded for completing a bonus round or, if a minigame contains crates, breaking all of them.

In Crash Bandicoot 4: It's About Time, there two kinds of clear gems. Each story level and timeline level has six regular clear gems and six N. Verted Gems, the latter type differs from regular clear gems by being upside down. The first three clear gems are earned by collecting 40%, 60%, and 80% of the Wumpa Fruits respectively. The fourth clear gem is earned by breaking all Crates. The fifth gem is earned by completing the level without dying more than three times. The sixth gem is always hidden somewhere in the level. The N. Verted Gems are earned through same methods in N. Verted Mode, but Wumpa Fruits are replaced with Bumpa Berries and the location of the hidden gem is also different from the normal mode.
