Mossy / Moissanite Updated Reference

Character is part of a personal AU that takes place in a separate galactic empire from the canon show. While the general Gem concept is intact within the AU, everything else is wildly different and does not have much in common with canon material. AU is made entirely for personal enjoyment and to interact with close friends. AU is not currently active, I’m just trying to rehost my backed up art on this blog.

Hey, remember that one time I said I’d submit many of my gem OCs?

Well, I forgot :P

But yeah, this gal is Carborundum, Carby for short (Only Axinite calls her like that though)

Gem name: Carborundum

She’s the cinnamon roll of cinnamon rolls, very protective and nice overall, She’s pretty low ranking since her gem cut was originally considered a defective version of Moissanite, but the notable defensive capabilities were deemed useful for a bodyguard.

Carborundums have the ability of hardening their hair, making it as resistant as Diamond,they tend to be tall as a quartz and mostly used to protect gems that have less fighting power like Sapphires.

Carby is sometimes quite dense, innocent and sweet, but she will still protect her Axinite when she’s in danger, even if it could mean herself getting hurt badly, she isn’t sure if it’s because of her respect for her or something else.

What I was working on the other night. I was super excited to have the carborundum included as the center stone. I’ve had it for months and was wondering when it come up for a grid. The Luxullianite was also a first time grid appearance for me. (It’s the pink and black stone closest to the center stone)

So I know I’m not the best artist but I’ve been so inspired by all the fan art and things that I’ve come across that I couldn’t resist trying to do some of my own.

These are my babies Fluorite and Carborundum.  ^_>_^ 

Info if you wanna know:

Fluorites home-world job was preparing the “gem essence” that went into kindergarten injectors. She would help design new gems to Diamond specifications. During the rebellion and the resource shortage on home-world she was charged with formulating a new type of super warrior gem using what little was left of the resources. They wanted something to end the war, a gem so strong only the Diamonds could best it. When the first prototype emerged it was quickly deemed defective when it was found the gem could not speak and did not respond well to the stern direction of its superiors. Fluorite was directed to destroy it. Carborundum had been the only creation she had ever made that came out imperfect in the eyes of home-world, however that is not what Fluorite saw. What she saw was something wonderfully unique that had to be given the chance to find it’s true purpose. She and her creation disappeared from home-world at the peak of the rebellion and have not reported back since.  

Extras: 

~ Fluorite sees Carborundum as close to a child as possible by a gem.

~ Carborundum is non verbal and has the disposition of a human on the autism spectrum. 

~ Fluorite served under White Diamond during her time on home-world.

~ Carborundum, the real world crystal, is one of the hardest gems and can score the surface of any stone except a diamond. It was created by accident when a scientist was trying to synthesis artificial diamonds.  

~ Fluorite can project a peacock-like tail of light resembling the aurora borealis from the gem on her back, this tail can alter the chemical structure of a substance that is waved though it allowing her to preform her “gem alchemy”.

~ Fluorite used to work with Nacre (mother of pearl) on occasion but they did not get along. She also worked often with kindergarten Peridots and their boss Moss Agat.   

~ Like Aquamarine Carborundum has no nose.
