There are 6 Chaos Emeralds to collect in total in Sonic The Hedgehog 1. They can only be obtained in the Special Stages.

To enter a Special Stage, you must first collect a total of 50+ Rings, then successfully complete the level with the required amount of rings. If you have done this you will see a Giant Ring. Once you have past the Finish Sign, you need to quickly jump inside the Ring, before Sonic runs off the screen and then you will then enter in the Special Stage.

A Special Stage is when Sonic is in a permanent spinball, and you must guide him around the arena, passing obstacles and objects to successfully find the Chaos Emerald. Once you have collected a Chaos Emerald, the next time you go into a Special Stage it will change to a different arena. If you fail to collect a Chaos Emerald however, you will have to retry again by collecting another 50+ Rings and enterting another Giant Ring. Collect all 6 Chaos Emeralds and you will unlock the achievement.

Note: It is recommended that you save your progress each time you go into a Special Stage. The reason is because if you fail, you can attempt to get the achievement again, without grabbing another 50+ Rings and entering a different Giant Ring.

Note: You can only enter Giant Rings on Act 1 or Act 2 in the Zones available in the game, for instance Green Hill Zone Act 1 or Starlight Zone Act 2. You cannot enter a Giant Ring on Act 3's, because they are all boss levels.

Note: The last level you can enter a Giant Ring is Scrap Brain Zone Act 1, because Act 2 sees you having a minor cameo with Dr. Eggman (Robotnik)!

Note: The Giant Ring will not appear once you have successfully collected all 6 Chaos Emeralds. Collecting all 6 Chaos Emeralds will reveal the True Ending in the game.
