    The easiest way to get this achievement is the sword familiar- gem glitch.
    Have only one of any gem in your inventory and equip the Sword familiar. Stand in front of the Master Librarian and use the sword brothers spell. Quickly approach the librarian to bring up the menu. Go to the jewel selling menu and press the back button on the 360 controller. Equip the jewel you want to sell. Press the back button again to close the menu and sell the jewel, then exit the shop. You now have 255 of that game to sell and makes a big sum You must have all $100,00 in your inventory. It is not cumulative.

    A really easy way to get the money legitimately is to acquire the Jewel Sword which cause monsters to very frequently drop salable gems when killed. With the sword equipped go to the room with the Spectral Sword enemy (large floating sword with many "Puppet Swords" swirling around it) and the trick is to kill as many Puppet Swords as you can while avoiding the Spectral Sword; this gives you a massive amount of kills that can each drop gems in a single screen. It's fastest to reset the room via the left door. It won't take particularly long (I spent maybe 5-10 minutes, plus the trip through the castle to the librarian) to buffer whatever gems you've already sold and come across. This method will get you the achievement in no time.

    Spectral Sword + Puppet Swords are located in the 4-room cube in the Cathedral.

    The Jewel Sword can be found in the room SW of the room near the very beginning with the giant rock in the centre (the infinite spawning Mermen are below it.) To open the door you have to break the sides of the rock and go through from L -> R in wolf form then R -> L as a bat.

    You can use this method on other creatures too, but I found the swords to be the best concentration with the least hassle.

    Omarotakuxbx360This is the best, faster and honest way to get this achievement. It work wonders for me. Well it's just my opinion!

    GarnitoroSmashing and hassle-free solution. For anyone looking for a convenient Spectral Sword enemy, I used the one in the big room with the stained-glass background, right (east) of the room with the long staircase. It's in the top left (north-western) quadrant of the map.

    To get this achievement really easily, refrain from buying anything from the shop (EXCEPT FOR THE REQUIRED ITEMS NEEDED TO PROCEED) from when you start the game to when you start the inverted castle. If you still do not have the achievement when you start the inverted castle, look in your options menu to see how much you have.

    Try selling any gems you'd found in the regular castle to the shop (Located in the library), you should have it then.
