This article is about the Gem type and its members. You may be looking for the Crystal Gem Peridot or the video game character "Squaridot".

Peridots were low ranking technological Gems that were mostly used as kindergarteners. All known Peridots have been voiced by Shelby Rabara.

Role

Peridot examining the Galaxy Warp.

Main article: Caste System#Peridots

Peridots served mainly as technicians and kindergarteners, sometimes performing field assignments on other planets, such as the Peridot who befriended Steven and joined the Crystal Gems. Being workers, Peridots had a low rank, only being allowed into elite Homeworld areas if a job was needed to be done there.[1]

Era 2 Peridots were given Limb Enhancers to compensate for the lack of strength and unique abilities older Gems had, due to the depletion of resources on Homeworld since the dawn of Era 2. That being said, the Crystal Gems' Peridot is shown to have ferrokinetic abilities, and is the only known Peridot that has this power.

Physical Characteristics

Peridots tend to have green skin and yellow or green hair that comes in a variety of shapes. While the exact appearance of an Era 1 Peridot (if any different) is unknown, it is known that they possessed abilities which made technological enhancements unnecessary for them to perform their duties.

Main Peridots

  • Peridot Facet-2F5L Cut-5XG – An intelligent, yet energetic, Peridot. She used to serve Yellow Diamond as a subordinate, before she was sent on a mission to Earth, slowly grew to love the planet and became a member of the Crystal Gems.
  • "Squaridot" - A former subordinate of Hessonite and Yellow Diamond. She used to act hostile towards the Crystal Gems, as shown in Save the Light, but soon changed her mind after she was rescued by them in Unleash the Light.

Other Peridots

    Q: "So...with this whole ball thing. We've seen that Gems do know what music is, and what singing is. So why didn't Peridot know what singing is?"
    A: "She would never have been in the palace unless she was there for a job. She's essentially a maintenance worker."
