DISCLAIMER: Your Steps and Tasks may be different

Per patch 1.92 (02.27.08):
- Glowing Soul Gems can now be turned in between levels 35 and 41, making the level range more appropriate to the creatures that drop them.

Random rewards from the 'souls' he relases from the gems - anything from 50 silver in cash to a jewel item worth (unknown limit - most I know if is 5 gold) to varying amounts of exp. (half a mil, perhaps more?) The text implies that an occasional 'freed spirit' may
be hostile...

Aserod Ilonus can be found at the Yarley farm in Cornwall

When you get to him(you can try at level 23 if you want, not sure if you can but you may still try), right click on him and he will ask you for help getting the gems. If you have some(or one) Glowing Soul Gem(s) that you have collected, drop one on him and a 'freed spirit' will appear. Right-click on the 'freed spirit' and it will either disappear and drop loot or attack you (most often it should drop some kind of gem worth from 50s to 5g, sources say). If you successfully kill it, it should drop 6 to 7 items of various loot, i.e. arrows, citrines, and other normal drops.

My friend had a lot of them so we went to turn them in and he would not accept them at L44.

I turned in 18 gems, with 16 friendlies and 2 hostiles. I recieved at most 520,160xp a few times (at level 42), and at most 50sp a few times. The rest were various gems.

Yes these are the same items... even the Greater Boogys drop Glowing Soul Gems from time to time.

My 42 Friar didn't get any XP by turning it in, so there must be a cap on how high a level you can be and still get XP from it.

I strongly agree with Utgar, too...these guys drop really good cash for their level - getting around 1gp for every Greater Boogey, so definitely makes them a good choice to solo for both XP and cash in your early 40s - makes a nice change from Barrows, too.

Also, I had one spirit come out hostile, but he was green to me when I was somewhere in my 20s healing a friend between fights with Grtr Boogeys.

Planning to turn in 15 of them with my 24 Infil, so maybe can let you guys know some of the rewards other than cash or gems.

It has been my experience that these glowing soul gems only drop during the nighttime hours. Please corrst me if I'm wrong.

Rarely Hostile

I have dropped off a lot of these gems with a number of characters (probably a total of around 40 gems over a long period of time). Only one time was the spirit hostile. It was grey to level 35, and probably around level 20 based on how fast it dropped. If you can kill a Boogey, you are in no danger.

There are quite a few Boogeys wandering around the area between the elder beeches and the undead legioneer camp. A good place for a charcter in the high twenties to solo, or for a group of twenties.

Boogeys don't drop items (besides the Soul Gems), but they drop a lot of cash for their level. Quite profitable if you are not twinked.
