I JUST got the Gibbering Gemstone from Chiltara in the Caverns over this past weekend. What a freaking pain in the neck that was...

Not sure if this means you did it or not, but unfortunately, can't really offer any tips. I looked up a ton of things, nothing helped more than anything else. I believe my Chiltara spawned near the Resplendent Chest in the middle of the Caverns 2nd floor. I'd read mostly that she spawns near the Stone at the end of the dungeon. I went there first, didn't see her, doubled back for the Resplendent, and a unique monster was there, I almost missed her! When I saw it was Chiltara, I leapt on her, like, "if you don't give me that gemstone, so help me--" but she did.
I don't want to say Blizzard needs to step in, but if they could maybe tweak the appearance of the Caverns to a bit more reliable place...or even JUST have the Caverns spawn instead of the Icefall Caves, Chiltara can still be a random spawn, but at least there's no question of which cave to enter.
Good news is...with all the farming runs I did with my Wizard on Hell Diff MP 7 or 8, and my Monk, my characters got some great XP and all the farming and vending got me the 1.75 mil in gold I needed to craft every tier of the staff, with another 500k gold to spare, :-D
