glowing gem

Guard well your spare moments. They are like uncut diamonds. Discard them and their value will never be known. Improve them and they will become the brightest gems in a useful life.

So in Three Gems and a Baby, thre´s a moment when Steven´s gem brightens for the fisrt time

and it just hit me that it could as well be Crewniverse´s nod all the way back too episode 1 named Gem Glow  (Coincindence? I think not!) where, as we all know, Steven´s Gem glows as well but this time its the first time he summons his shield.
