Lesser Soul Gem is an item in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.


Soul Gems are used for enchanting weapons and armor at an Arcane Enchanter or recharging previously enchanted weapons. After using a soul gem (with the exclusion of Azura's Star and The Black Star) it is destroyed.

If a soul of a smaller size than the Soul Gem is collected, simply drop the Soul Gem from your inventory and pick it up. It will be empty and ready to receive another soul.
