Mining and gems?

I musta missed it in the notes somewhere, but can someone confirm for me that gems no longer drop from mining nodes.

No gems in nodes unless you have Ancient Pandaren Mining Pick and from what I've heard it's a very slim chance to get gems.

They don't unless you get the Ancient Pandaren Mining Pick, which is a rare spawn inside the Greenstone Quarry in Jade Forest.

Also from what I understand, even with the pick the drop rate on gems is horrid, and half of that horrid drop rate will consist of common gems.

I still want it on my gatherer, but I'm not going to go out of my way to camp it, lol.

Big deal. Just prospect them. Ghost iron is only slightly more common than dirt.
