The Treasure (
During Senku, Magma, and Chrome's exploration of the caves they come across a large skarn deposit. Senku tells the other two that the ore they are looking for is within that deposit. Magma then swings his pickaxe while screaming and sticks it into the large rock, stating how he could not bring himself to slaughter Senku. Senku then makes the observation that back at the mica pit, Magma instinctively tried to save him even if his premeditated plan was to toss him in. Chrome realizing he misjudged Magma, apologizes and offers to let him punch him for looking down on him. Out of frustration, Magma breaks the large deposits, and they obtain the ore they were looking for. The ore they were looking for was Tungsten; the most heat resistant rock.
After leaving the cave, Chrome states that the friendship the three of them have made while in the cave is far more valuable then the ore they have collected. Senku and Magma find his statement weird and call it gross. They also found manganese, chalcopyrite zinc blende, and a few other gems.
Magma remembers that Gen told him to return after three days, and Magma rushes the other two to return quickly. Magma then blindfolds Senku, and begins to run while carrying him. After Senku removes his blind fold he is greeted by Gen. Gen and the rest of the villagers present to Senku a telescope they made for him for his birthday. Gen tells Senku how he remembered how to make a telescope from memory, and was able to finish it with the help of all the villagers. Senku shows his excitement and states how he can use this telescope to spy on Tsukasa's army. Gen tells Senku that he knows his birthday from seeing his stone carving of dates back when Senku was first depetrified.
A flashback reveals Gen discovering the craving and being in awe at someone actually knowing the year and month they were revived. Gen realizes this person would have had to been conscious the whole time.
In reality, Gen states he already respected Senku before they met.
