This article is about the Heaven Beetle. You may be looking for the Earth Beetle, the instrumental song or the reprise.

The Heaven Beetle is a former Corrupted Gem that makes her debut in the episode "Giant Woman". Steven Jr. finds her inside the Big Bird. She now lives within Little Homeworld with her friend and possible romantic partner the Earth Beetle.



The Heaven Beetle resembles a Japanese Rhinoceros Beetle. The Heaven Beetle's femurs are light-green, and the lower half of her legs are pine-green. Her body is mostly yellow but is topped with a turquoise-colored gemstone surrounded by a white clover-shaped marking. She has a white horn, white antlers, and light green eyes.


She has bright yellow skin and two cool dark green eyes. Her hair is light green and bob style with a white band around the forehead and under her hair, with two structures similar to white wings on top and a lime green knuckle connecting them. She wears a yellow-gold dress with a white collar similar to the chalice of a daisy and small blue-green flats. Her face has no visible nose. The movie revealed that she does have visible hands and fingers.


Thousands of Years Ago

The Heaven Beetle was on Earth during the Rebellion, and presumably built the house atop the Sky Spire.

Around 4,500 years ago

When the Diamonds unleashed the Corrupting Light, she was unable to escape the blast and became corrupted, continuing to live at the Sky Spire in her corrupted state.

"Giant Woman"

Garnet sends Pearl, Amethyst, and Steven to collect the beetle from her tiny house at the top of the Sky Spire. The beetle is swallowed by the Big Bird, and Steven and Steven Jr. are swallowed shortly afterwards. Steven manages to find the beetle in Steven Jr.'s mouth while trapped in Big Bird's stomach. She is placed in a terrarium with the Earth Beetle that Garnet then bubbles.

"Change Your Mind"

The Heaven Beetle, along with the other Corrupted Gems, is healed at Rose's Fountain when Steven and the Diamonds combined their powers. The Earth Beetle gives her a kiss on the cheek, and the two are lifted in the air when Ocean Jasper emerges from the healing water.

Steven Universe: The Movie

When Spinel accidentally caused the giant pizza cutter to get out of control, one of the barrels on the scaffolding fell off and was headed straight for herself and the Earth Beetle, who were out on their afternoon constitutional. Luckily they were saved by Lapis Lazuli and gave her an okay after being asked if they were okay. They were then seen at the end of the movie after Spinel left with the Diamonds.

"Little Homeschool"

The Heaven Beetle, along with the Earth Beetle, are seen learning how to forge with Bismuth.

"A Very Special Episode"

The Heaven and Earth Beetle, along with Ocean Jasper and a Nephrite, attended a home safety "geminar" hosted by Sunstone.

"Everything's Fine"

The Heaven Beetle is seen alongside Earth Beetle in their house when the baseball is about to crash towards their window until Steven manages to catch the baseball, saving them. The moment is short-lived however, as Steven's enthusiasm triggers his destructive powers, accidentally destroying Heaven and Earth Beetle's house in the process, leaving the two unharmed and homeless.


Earth Beetle

Change Your Mind 979.png

As shown in "Change Your Mind", the Earth and Heaven Beetle appeared to have a very close, presumably romantic, relationship before being corrupted.

Steven Universe: The Movie also showed them going on an afternoon constitutional walk together.

They hold each other when they were afraid of Garnet's predictions in "A Very Special Episode".

The two are shown living together in "Everything's Fine."

Lapis Lazuli

Lapis saves the Heaven and Earth Beetle from the runaway barrel in Steven Universe: The Movie. After being asked if they were okay, they answered yes by giving a thumbs up.

Ocean Jasper

The Heaven Beetle is with her at Sunstone's safety geminar, and often sits on her head.

A Nephrite

The Heaven Beetle is seen with her at Sunstone's safety seminar and is sometimes carried by her.

Episode Appearances


  • The Heaven Beetle and Earth Beetle are collectively known as "The Geode Beetles of Heaven and Earth".
    • This may imply that their gem type is something relating to geodes, although this has not been confirmed.
  • The Heaven Beetle appears in the game Goat Guardian.
  • The Heaven Beetle and Earth Beetle's identity as Corrupted Gems was confirmed by Matt Burnett.[1]
  • The Earth Beetle appears to have a gemstone identical to the Heaven Beetle's. This could mean they are the same Gem type.
  • The design of the Heaven and Earth Beetles resemble the real life practice of live insect jewelry.
  • The Heaven and Earth Beetles are the first known examples of Corrupted Gems able to live comfortable, non-destructive lives.
  • The Heaven Beetle owns a castle-like house with books, glasses, bongos, a TV, a bed, and a game console, which is strange since neither Gems or Corrupted Gems need these items to survive, and the Heaven Beetle (presumably) can't use most of these items.
  • She and the Earth Beetle are the second and third Corrupted Gems that are shown bubbled without being poofed first. The Desert Glass is the first.


Image Description
Her gemstone is located on her back, appearing to take up her entire back area. It is rhomboidal in shape, specifically a wide kite-like shape. It is physically identical to her partner's gemstone.
