    This can be found on the second level on N. Sanity Island, which is N. Sanity Peak.

    You will reach a checkpoint at the bottom of three jumps. If you look closely to the right there will be an etching in the rocks that should give some clue as to what to do.

    Basically, get to the top of the ridge and you will see a large chasm, with a mask at the other end. Phasing in and out are platforms to get you across. You could just jump straight across to gather the mask, but you will miss the Red Gem.

    There are nine platforms in a 3x3 formation. To unlock the Red Gem jump on them in this order:

    Bottom Left
    Bottom Middle
    Bottom Right
    Middle Right
    Top Right
    Top Middle
    Top Left
    Middle Left
    Middle Middle

    Essentially going anti-clockwise around the grid but jumping on the middle one before you complete a full loop of the outside

    As soon as you jump on the central platform, the Red Gem will appear. Jump over to it to collect it. The achievement wont pop until the end of the level. But if you die after collecting it and get sent back to the checkpoint before, you dont need to attempt this again as you will have already unlocked it.

    In this video I will show you how to find the hidden red gem. It is located on the map: N. Sanity Island, in the level: N. Sanity Peak. You will need to get to the room with the alternating disappearing tiles. You will need to start on the bottom left one and work counter clock-wise. The one in the middle will end up being the last one. If done correctly the red gem will spawn next to where the mask is. Grab it and finish the level to get the achievement.
