We know that there are six Infinity Stones in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. But as I didn't see the movies in the correct sequence I couldn't understand where the Infinity Stones are right now and who is using them.

So, can anyone please help me by telling me the current status of the Infinity stones?

'The Infinty Stones' a series of gems in the shape of oval orbs displayed in order with their respective names and colours. In order: 1. The Mind Gem (Red) 2. The Reality Gem (Orange) 3. The Power Gem (Yellow) 4. The Space Gem (Green) 5. The Time Gem (Blue) 6. The Soul Gem (Purple).

  • New user, so I can't add this as a comment to the comprehensive post above. There is a good theory that the soul stone is with Heimdall. In the centre of his breastplate, there is a gem that looks to be about the right size and colour. Heimdall can see the souls of living beings. And the real fun part is that the previous stones have been found in/are related to: - Tesseract (Space) - ??? (Soul) - Aether (Reality) - Necklace (Time) - Orb (Power) - Scepter (Mind) So if Heimdall is the carrier of the soul stone, the first letter of each location spells out Thanos. Jul 11, 2017 at 19:25

    This theory was already asked in this question: scifi.stackexchange.com/questions/87643/…. It has been concluded that it is highly unlikely that this theory is true

  • Could be Heimdall or Hel.

    @Scorch91 it's also asked here too Do the Infinity Gems spell out Thanos? and it's kind of debunked already.

1 Answer 1


All information is correct as of the latest Cinematic Universe movie: Black Panther (February 2018) & Infinity War trailers (April 2018).

Mind Gem

  • In Vision's forehead
    • Seemingly giving him life.
  • Formerly part of Loki's Staff from The Avengers (2012).
  • Last seen in Captain America: Civil War (2016).

Screen capture of The Vision, a character from the movie *The Avengers: Age of Ultron*. The Vision has the 'Mind Gem' on/within his forehead. Screen Capture of 'Loki's Sceptre' from the movie *The Avengers: Age of Ultron*, having formerly contained the 'Mind Gem'.

Space Gem

  • Was in Odin's vault. Loki passes by it while brining Surtur's crown to the Eternal Flame in Thor: Ragnarök (2017).
  • With Loki aboard the Grandmaster's ship seen within trailers for Infinity War (April 2018).

Loki handing the Tesseract presumably to Thanos

Time Gem

  • Encased inside the 'Eye of Agamotto'
  • In Doctor Strange's possession on Earth (2016).

Screen capture of the glowing green orb, encased within a bronze coloured elaborately patterned metal casing, known as 'The Eye of Agamotto'.

Power Gem

  • On Xandar with the Nova Corps at the end of The Guardians of the Galaxy: Vol. 1 (2014).
  • Originally encased within the Orb that Star Lord retrieves at the beginning of the film

Screen capture from the movie *The Guardians of the Galaxy: Vol. 1*, showing an elaborate and intricately carved silver coloured orb which opens up and contains the glowing purple 'Power Gem'.

Reality Gem

  • Encased within (or in the form of) The Aether
    • Assumed to still be in the possession of The Collector after the explosion on Knowhere (The Guardians of the Galaxy: Vol. 1 - 2014).
    • It was given to him by the Warriors Three at the end of Thor: The Dark World (2013).

Screen capture from a scene in the movie *Thor: The Dark World*, showing 'The Aether', a silvery-black flowing liquid, almost alive, within a red backdrop. Presumably 'The Aether' is or contains the 'Reality Gem'.

Soul Gem

  • Unknown at this time
  • From the image provided by the Collector during The Guardians of the Galaxy: Vol. 1 we can assume this gem to be orange in some way.


An image, presumably released either by Marvel or fan-made, depicting a list (in table format) of all of the known (and yet to be revealed) Infinity Stones/Gems. The top row has the gems, all roughly hewn and of varying shapes, mostly about the size of a large walnut, in order 1. The 'Space Stone' (Blue) 2. The 'Mind Stone' (Yellow) 3. The 'Reality Stone' (Red) 4. The 'Power Stone' (Purple) 5. The 'Time Stone' (Green) 6. The 'Soul Stone' (Orange). The Second row tells us where each is contained (as explained above) a the third row tells us where it is, or in who's possession (also explained above).

Bonus side-note In the Cinematic Universe there are two Infinity Gauntlets - Right & Left.

The Right-Hand Gauntlet was in Loki's possession during Thor: Ragnarok. However it was shown by Hela to be a faked gauntlet.

Screen capture featuring a 'right-handed' metallic glove or gauntlet, it is golden and has small notches on each main knuckle, as well as a slightly larger on in the top part of the palm, presumably ready to contain the 'Infinity Gems'. The gauntlet looks like it is in a vitrine display.

The Left-Hand Gauntlet is in Thanos' possession at the end of The Avengers: Age of Ultron & within the Infinity War Trailers.

    Why are there two gloves if one can (seemingly) hold all 6 stones? Jul 12, 2017 at 23:14

    @HannoverFist In comics there is only one glove, why they made two in films might get explained some day

    @HannoverFist Because wearing only one glove is ridiculous? Jul 13, 2017 at 15:18
