Okay, something has been bothering me ever since "On the Run": Gems reproduce by travelling to new worlds and "harvesting" gemstones to create new gems.  The process then repeats itself as more gems are created to travel to more planets and harvest other gems.  There's one problem with this process though: How did it ''start''?  There must have been gems around to invent the technology neccessary for space travel and the machines to mine planets for gems.  They could not have been grown in kindergartens themselves, as the technology did not exist yet.  So where did they come from?

Here's my theory: The first gems evolved from sea creatures that produce organic gemstones (pearls, coral, etc.).  Over time they evolved in such a way that the creature's life force passed into the stone itself, eventually creating pearls that were self-aware and could manipulate the world around them.  Soon they developed the ability to project their own bodies and began to develop their own culture.  After thousands of years they began experimenting with inorganic gemstones and discovered that they could induce the same process artificially.  They most likely used this process to create gems to fill jobs that Pearls did not want to do (workers, soldiers, etc.).  However, one of the artificial gems became too powerful (let's say Blue Diamond) and led a revolt against the Pearls.  When they won, the Diamonds became the new rulers of the planet, with other precious stones as the upper class and common gemstones (quartzes) as the lower class.

Okay, something has been bothering me ever since "On the Run": Gems reproduce by travelling to new worlds and "harvesting" gemstones to create new gems.  The process then repeats itself as more gems are created to travel to more planets and harvest other gems.  There's one problem with this process though: How did it start?  There must have been gems around to invent the technology neccessary for space travel and the machines to mine planets for gems.  They could not have been grown in kindergartens themselves, as the technology did not exist yet.  So where did they come from?

Here's my theory: The first gems evolved from sea creatures that produce organic gemstones (pearls, coral, etc.).  Over time they evolved in such a way that the creature's life force passed into the stone itself, eventually creating pearls that were self-aware and could manipulate the world around them.  Soon they developed the ability to project bodies made out of energy and became intelligent enough to build their own civilization, with new generations being born from the sea to replace the old ones as they died out.  After thousands of years they began experimenting with inorganic gemstones and discovered that they could induce the same process artificially.  They most likely used this process to create gems to fill jobs that Pearls did not want to do (workers, soldiers, etc.).  However, one of the artificial gems became too powerful (let's say Blue Diamond) and led a revolt against the Pearls.  When they won, the Diamonds became the new rulers of the planet, with other precious stones as the upper class and common gemstones (quartzes) as the lower class.

Soon, the gems realized that the process to create new gems drained the life from the environment around them and could have catastrophic consequences if it was allowed to continue.  Plus, they were probably beginning to run out of readily available gemstones, so the gems began the process of mining new planets for gemstones.

So yeah, that's my weird tangent based on Jasper's offhand comment about Pearl.
