"Steven the Sword Fighter"

"Sworn to the Sword"

"Keeping It Together"

"Historical Friction"

In Steven and Jamie's play, "Beach City or Bust", props for a Crystal Gem fusion and Corrupted Gem Monster can be seen. Not strongly resembling any other fusions, this is a fusion between some (or all) of the Crystal Gems. This fusion fights off a Corrupted Gem resembling both the Centipeetle Mother and the Big Bird.

"When It Rains"

There are holograms of many unknown Cluster Gems in the Prime Kindergarten Control Room in "When It Rains".

"Message Received"

In "Message Received", Yellow Diamond states that Peridot has a manager.

"Same Old World"

There are a few unknown Gems featured in Lapis' flashback.

"Monster Reunion"

There are a few unknown Gems featured in Nephrite's flashback.

Nephrite, upon being briefly uncorrupted in "Legs From Here to Homeworld", mentions her Hessonite commander.


These are the "other Crystal Gems" who were mentioned by Bismuth, except for Nephrite, who is most likely a Homeworld Gem. They appear to be her close friends. Their statuses and physical appearances are unknown.

  • "Crazy Lace" - A former Crystal Gem mentioned by Bismuth. She is presumably a Crazy Lace Agate.
  • "Snowflake" - A former Crystal Gem mentioned by Bismuth in. She may be a Snowflake Obsidian, a type of volcanic glass.
  • Other Amethysts - Former Crystal Gems mentioned by Bismuth.
  • Nephrite - A Homeworld ship pilot, mentioned by Bismuth to Pearl.


Many Corrupted Gems are seen trapped in cages in the Beta Kindergarten. Their bodies are hidden by shadows and only their glowing yellow eyes can be seen.

Additionally, Peridot mentions a Carnelian whose hole is misshaped in the Beta Kindergarten, later assumed to be Carnelian, a member of "the Famethyst" in "That Will Be All". Amethyst refers to one Gem with a thin exit hole as "skinny", later assumed to be a "Skinny" Jasper, a member of "the Famethyst" who debuted in the same episode as Carnelian.


Another Corrupted Gem can be seen in a cage. Only her two eyes and large six-clawed hand can be seen.

"Adventures in Light Distortion"

File:Unknown small gem.png

When Steven is adjusting the Roaming Eye's form calibration system for the Crystal Gems, a small type of Gem, possibly a Pebble, can briefly be seen on the panel, which subsequently alters the Crystal Gems' forms to be small.

Adventures In Light Distortion 163

Also, a large type of Gem, presumably Quartz, Topaz, or Bismuth can be seen.

"That Will Be All"

That Will Be All 060

A countless number of Rose Quartz gems appear bubbled in a room of Pink Diamond's Zoo.

"The Trial"

The defending Zircon states that Pink Diamond's entourage did not contain any Rose Quartzes and was instead composed of several Agates and Sapphires.

"Off Colors"

Various pieces of old statues can be seen at the beginning of the episode. One appears to be a fusion of two unknown Gems, while the head of a large statue has a gemstone with the same cut as a Rose Quartz's on its forehead.

File:Morganite ok large.png

Rhodonite's components are an unknown Ruby and Pearl, while Fluorite's components are six unknown Gems.

The Rutile Twins mention in that the moment they emerged, the other Rutiles who saw them run away out of fear because of how they looked.

Morganite, an unknown Gem, is mentioned by Rhodonite. She was in charge of the two halves of Rhodonite (a Pearl and a Ruby) before she replaced them after she found out that they had fused.


Steven Universe Gemcation 149

During Garnet's brief flashback of the Rebellion, two unknown Gem silhouettes appear fighting Pink Diamond alongside Garnet, Pearl, and Bismuth.

  • On the left of the image there is a Gem with short hair around the same height of Pearl. She appears to have a thin build. Her hair is similar to the Rutile Twins' or the prosecuting Zircon's.
  • On the right of the image there is a short Gem. She resembles one of the unknown Gems in "The Answer".

"Lars of the Stars"

A group of sixty-seven elite Citrines is mentioned by Emerald to have guarded her fastest ship, the Sun Incinerator, on the docking bay of the planet Klavius 7. Lars and the Off Colors are able to successfully sneak past all of the guards in order to steal the ship. Emerald also mentions that one of the crimes Lars and the Off Colors are accused of is impersonating imperial officers in a cosmic jubilee. While pursuing the Off Colors in her Destiny Destroyer, Emerald commands her crew, who remain offscreen, to fire on the Sun Incinerator's nova thrusters.

File:Jungle Moon – Priyanka (Yellow Diamond) calls a Nephrite?.png

"Jungle Moon"

In Stevonnie's dream, the name shown on Dr. Maheswaran (who represents Yellow Diamond in the dream)'s phone is Nephrite-XJ Cut-763. She seems to have been reluctant to begin colonizing the planet due to the presence of organic life, causing Yellow Diamond to demand her to do her job, threatening to shatter her and her crew herself otherwise. According to the silhouette on the phone, she has spiky hair.

Yellow Diamond also attempts to contact the leader of the fleet, however, Pink Diamond interrupts her, so the leader's name and appearance are never shown.

"Your Mother and Mine"

During the flashback, many Quartzes belonging to Pink Diamond appeared, emerging from their incubation in the ground alongside Rose Quartz. The silhouettes of other Quartzes, whose purple coloring suggesting they are Amethysts, are also shown working in the kindergarten. Unknown Crystal Gems also appeared in the flashback, standing alongside Rose and fighting unknown Homeworld Gems at the Ancient Sky Arena.

Near the end of the episode, Rhodonite said there will be Agates on one of Yellow Diamond's Asteroid Mines that they were heading towards.

"A Single Pale Rose"

While Steven is in Pearl's gemstone, he presumably discovered her memories of the abandoned Gem Battlefield the second Pearl sent him to. There when he fell, he saw gemstones of inactive Gems in the sand. Later in the scene when Steven comes back from Pearl's gemstone, there are many Gems that witnessed Pink Diamond's shattering. In a following scene, there is a flail-wielding white Gem that Garnet poofs, and a Gem with a sword that Pearl fights.


"Now We're Only Falling Apart"

Three blueish-purple Quartzes (resembling Amethysts) appear in a flashback alongside Pearl, Rose Quartz, and two Topazes. They have large hair covering their eyes and a Blue Diamond insignia on their uniforms.

"The Question"

Ruby mentioned being surrounded by other Rubies before meeting Sapphire.

"Made of Honor"

After Bismuth is unbubbled in the Burning Room, she reveals the names of several bubbled (and presumably corrupted) former Crystal Gems.

  • "Tiger's Eye" - A corrupted former Crystal Gem mentioned by Bismuth, currently bubbled in the Burning Room. She is presumably a Quartz.
  • "Larimar" - A corrupted former Crystal Gem mentioned by Bismuth (nicknamed "Little Larimar"), currently bubbled in the Burning Room. Her nickname implies that she is of short stature.
  • "Beryl" - A corrupted former Crystal Gem mentioned by Bismuth, currently bubbled in the Burning Room.
  • "Serpentine" - A corrupted former Crystal Gem mentioned by Bismuth, currently bubbled in the Burning Room.

"Legs From Here to Homeworld"

Upon the arrival of Pink Diamond's ship, many Gems are seen cheering for the Diamonds. Among the Gems seen in the close-up of the crowd are a group of green Gems (possibly Peridots), a group of short pink Gems, a group of pale blue Gems, and a group of flying Aquamarines.


Yellow Diamond is mentioned to be checking up on Citrine production reports.

Blue Diamond mentions that Pink Diamond used to call a batch of Pyrite "Fool's Gold".

There are several polygonal yellow Sentient Walls (presumably Gems or Gem-powered objects) that seem to make up the wall in the hallway leading to Yellow Diamond's Extraction Chamber. They all have a rhombus-shaped yellow gemstone on their forehead.

There is also a statue of a woman making up part of the entryway to Blue Diamond's pool chamber. It blinks and has a round gemstone on its forehead, so it seems to be a Gem or a Gem-powered object like Lapis's mirror.

"Together Alone"

Various types of Garnets — Demantoids, Hessonites, and Pyropes — are mentioned by Blue Diamond when she taunts Garnet. In addition, many unknown Gems can be seen attending the Era 3 Ball. In addition to various Aquamarines, Amethysts, Rubies, and Sapphires, several gray, pink, purple, orange, yellow, and green Gems also attend the Ball.

There seems to be two more groups of Gems: various metallic-colored Gems whose attires resemble gears seen from above, and various yellow/green Gems.

There are three different types of Gems with metallic colors and cog-shaped dresses (round-headed Gems with cylindrical headwear, Gems with pear-shaped heads and pointy hair, and Gems with square-shaped heads and hair in buns), all coming in four different color sets with defined gem placements.
