2 The gems don't really have a gender, but most have female properties

No one really knows garnets gender but I always thought garnet is a female and should be


3 Rebecca Sugar is the first woman is create a Cartoon Network show

Isn't Rebecca Sugar non-binary?

Same for the creator of Star Butterfly

She must be proud of it. - funnyuser

SVTFOE is on Disney

4 The Kindergarten was where bad gems were made, except amethyst.

I really hope someone realizes that Amethyst was in fact made in the Kindergarten

That is the truth

Not anymore.

Also jasper

5 All of the earth gems except Steven and Amethyst are from space

No. Jasper was made in the prime kindergarten, like amethyst.

6 Amethyst was made in the Kindergarten

Yes she was

7 All of the Gems are like the Gems that they are based off of

Except Jasper, her gem represents maternity, nurturing, protection, and relaxation. Jasper is the complete opposite of that!

Pearl is perfect, Steven is caring, Garnet is sarcastic, and Amethyst is carefree. - funnyuser

Everyone excep jasper redemtion is coming

The Contenders

11 Peridot is officially a Crystal Gem

When Peridot called Yellow Diamond a clod, there was no turning back - Haumea

YESS. She called Yellow Diamond a clod!

Yes she is!

Go Peridot!

12 Amethyst is over 3,000 years old

Holy cat but she looks like she's only 11! - SamuiNeko

13 Peridot is the youngest full gem

There's been a few hints that Peridot is the youngest full gem (like in Marble Madness, she had no idea who the Crystal Gems are and about the Rebellion, she's childish, and gets frustrated with old gem tech, this has also been shown Friend Ship when she frustrated with the control panel on the old gem ship. It's like how we get frustrated with old computers). But, it's really been hinted in When it Rains when Peridot said that wasn't around when the Cluster was created and read over few hundred years of reports. So, we can infer Peridot 300-3,000 years old, making her the youngest full gem.

What if a character from the show was looking at the Internet of the real world, and found this list? Bet they would start treating Peridot as a little girl!

That is, until Hit the Diamond gave us Leggy the Ruby, who may be much younger.

It's obvious Peridot's the youngest full gem.

14 Garnet has three eyes: the one on the right belongs to Ruby, the left belongs to Sapphire, and the one on top belongs to Garnet

Bottom ruby top sapphire

Thanks to the nerds on Wikipedia! - funnyuser

Garnet's three eyes come from Ruby's two eyes and Sapphire's singular eye.

15 Homosexuality is canon

Rose and Pearl, Peridot and Lapis, Ruby and Sapphire.

NO Pearl and Amethyst are the better couple!

16 Amethyst has a crush on Pearl

I think it's a cute factoid. The signs are all there!

what signs

I ship it

17 Connie's eyes were healed by Steven's healing spit

It's magic... weird, weird magic.


18 Lapis and Peridot are based off of a love/hate relationship anime trope called Tsundre.

Tsundere. Sorry.

Yep! I want them to make out and get married! :D

19 Garnet's song "Stronger Than You " has over two million views on YouTube

It's not the show or the creator's fault that their fans took their opinions too far. And that should literally have nothing to do with an Adventure Time related comment.

It is also the longest song on the series. - Finn-Mordecai-Gumball

I love the song especially the remix

I love that song
