This article is about the Gem type. You may be looking for the Crystal Gem member.

Lapis Lazulis are Gems who have hydrokinetic abilities and were formerly used to terraform planets for colonies. All known Lapis Lazulis have been voiced by Jennifer Paz.


Main article: Caste System#Lapis Lazulis

Three Lapis Lazulis shown in water.

Lapis Lazulis were very valuable to Gem Empire because of their powerful hydrokinesis, and also were among the common elite on Homeworld. They are primarily used for terraforming potential colonies with their hydrokinesis, as mentioned by Yellow Diamond.

Lapis Lazulis are terraformers who reshape alien planets to be more suited for Gem production and colonization. From what has been shown Lapis Lazulis are incredibly powerful Gems, being capable of moving entires bodies of water with such force that it easily cuts through thick layers of rock. It is likely that this is how the canyons for Kindergartens are created, and how a planet's landmasses are reshaped by Homeworld during colonization.

Physical Characteristics

Lapis Lazulis are slightly shorter than Pearls, and are very humanoid in appearance, with their blue colored skin and gem being the only indication that they are extraterrestrial.

Homeworld Lapis Lazulis are barefooted, and wear a cropped sleeveless top with a long skirt that goes just below their knees. The diamond insignia is either placed on the collar in a similar way to the most common Homeworld uniform, or split in half over the front of the top and skirt.

Main Lapis Lazulis

  • Lapis Lazuli - A Lapis Lazuli who was trapped in a mirror for thousands of years and used by Homeworld for its invasion of Earth. She was freed by Steven Universe and eventually joined the Crystal Gems.
  • "Mean" Lapis - A Lapis Lazuli who continued to terraform planets after colonization was called off.
  • "Nice" Lapis - A Lapis Lazuli who continued to terraform planets after colonization was called off. She later enrolled in Little Homeschool.

"The Answer"

The silhouette of a Lapis Lazuli (presumed) with a gem on her upper back can be seen at the Cloud Arena among other members of Blue Diamond's court. It is very likely that this is the Crystal Gem Lapis, as the appearance is almost identical and she would have been on Earth at this time, but it has yet to be confirmed.

Lapis Lazuli's gemstone is located on her right shoulder.

Lapis Lazuli has blue-teal skin, unknown colored eyes, and deep cool green hair. She was seen in the beginning of Steven Universe: The Movie.


  • Lapis Lazulis being associated with water is ironic due to the fact that in real life lapis lazuli is water soluble and becomes damaged in water.
    • This fact could also be referenced in "Barn Mates" where Lapis describes water as a tomb she was trapped in and felt pain in.
  • According to Peridot, Lapis Lazulis are typically partial to water and flying.
