Gems are Important!
There are ways in the game to earn gems
Send trains for gems if I can't get the five gems for a full train I always go for the six items for two gems.
Some players can watch a video every day for one gem.
Feeding all my pets usually gives me one or two gems a day.
My best investment was purchasing Show Ponies.
They give 15 gems a week.
I always watch for Gem Sales too!
If you are super lucky and I got this once!
You can win ONE HUNDRED GEMS by turning in a butterfly collection.
* the best advice I was ever given was to invest in show ponies. That means making a purchase w/real money to get the gems to buy one, but once you have it, you're guaranteed 15 gems a week. 52 weeks in a year, and that alot of gems.
* think of the $ u'd spend on the purchase of gems like a replacement for something you don't need that week. Like of you're a Starbucks person, one week giving up Starbucks will buy you at least some gems. Or if you get a McDonald's meal, that's a good $7 or $10 bucks, that's some gems. When you're at the grocery store, instead of buying snacks you can do without, put that $ into gems. If you're able to think of the money spent differently, that helps.
* does this game give you joy? Do you enjoy playing it? If so, it's OK to pay a little bit to enjoy it more. For me, it's worth paying $34/yr to buy max gems so that I can afford a show pony. I do it one time. I spend that in a week at s'bucks and Co aider it a trade off. For other ppl, it might be purchasing a $10 pack during an event. I used to love the mine packs; kind of worthless to some ppl, but I dunno, for five bucks I get a kick out of those compass and other tools in there. If it gives you joy, then it's worthy.
Sometimes the leaderboard chests on the milestones gives me 10 gems .. this is a really random/rare thing to win though
From the mine can get gems too
It's important to remember that most of this doesn't apply to everyone. If you're an Android player, this is not available.

Two of which are only available to IOS, and the other two, moles/butterfly and the achievement house can be applied to both platforms - Android and IOS. Either way, going forward, I'll be more clear regarding this and that some can only be applied to one platform.
