This article is about the purple jewel on a square. For the blue jewel, see Essence of True Love.

The Essence of Desire (銀河愛のモニュメント?, lit.: "Monument of Galaxy Love") is a treasure in Pikmin 2. It is actually a cushion cut amethyst mounted on a square gold or brass loop. It can be found in the Dream Den on the seventh sublevel, a small level densely packed with enemies like Bumbling Snitchbugs, Careening Dirigibugs, and two Puffy Blowhogs, in which only one of the Blowhogs holds this treasure.


Olimar's journal

We traveled across the universe to this planet pursuing the dream of great discoveries. I've found a cavern that symbolizes the goal of our grand expedition, so I've named it the Dream Den.

Sales pitch

Stones, soil, and the stars themselves radiate with delight for this symbol of galactic desire.
