The Rainbow Mines (formerly Colorstone Mine) is a dungeon in Dragon Quest VII. It is located to the southeast of Ballymolloy.


The Rainbow Mines are named after the brightly-coloured stones found inside. The Hero, Maribel, and Kiefer head there after learning that one of the stones found inside has healing properties which are necessary for helping out Patrick's father, Hanlon, who was injured fighting monsters. Upon arriving, the party encounters Maeve once again and they ask for help finding the stone, but she tells them that she is busy and cannot help them out. However, she does tell them that the stone they need is green. After going further into the mine, the party finally finds the green rainbow stone they need to help Hanlon, but it is far too big to carry back with them. Maeve suddenly appears and cuts off a piece of the stone, which she gives to the group. Before leaving, she also gives them a carved wooden doll, which Maeve received from her older brother, Molloy. She tells them to find a new owner for it, since she's grown too old for it.

The mines are still operational in the present. The party decides to head there after hearing from the people of Ballymolloy that there may be fragments located deep in the mines. Besides the sea, the Rainbow Mines are the first place where the party can fight monsters in the present.

Dragon Quest XI 3DS and Switch

The rainbow mines are the first area the Luminary can visit through the altar of the forgotten past in the Echo Chamber. The adventure takes place before the Estard trio arrive, and revolves around the rainbow rocks becoming Rockbomb-esque monsters under the orders of Maeve, who then battles the party. Once this is over, a small portion of her humanity is restored and sets in motion her change of heart during the events of VII.
