I actually have one or two and I have NO idea where I got them! I just move, kill, open locked containers and grab. Later I check inventory and say "Oh that's interesting. I wonder what it does.". I really should learn what the different soul gems do.

Once you have reached a certain level, I was around 40, they will start showing up in random loot mostly when you kill necromancers or conjurers. Sometimes they are on Falmer. Once you can go to Blackreach, they will sometimes appear when you mine geode veins which produce soul gems of all sorts. Once you get Enthir (College of Winterhold) for a fence in the thieves guild he sells a couple. I found that once they started appearing it was no problem having a few on hand for filling with bad guys.

[/quote]Filled Soul gems are only useful if you enchant or use enchanted weapons otherwise just sell them. To fill them yourself you need either a soul trap weapon or a spell. Soul trap weapons are available to buy fairly early. Most common foes will fill Petty or Lesser. The tougher bears and cats will fill Common. Some high rank Falmer and Giants will fill Greater. Mammoths fill Grand. People require Black soul gems. Any filled soul gem can recharge an enchanted weapon though if the enchantment is high it may take multiple petty gems but that's a good use for them.

I know how to fill them :). They are for enchanting armors and weapons. Also my 3rd toon Im using that needs them is @ lv36 now. Didnt want to go threw the Magi School :/.

It isn't necessary to go through Enthir, I never did. Black gems showed up pretty often for my Dunmer who did more exploring/dungeon diving than my Imperial and even she found enough black gems to not need to go buy any.

You can also buy them off this guy. He's my dealer.

But, you can only buy them in his room at night.
