Here’s a new Steven Universe Gem OC, Dalmatian Jasper~
Name: Dalmatian Jasper Age: 4700+ years Gem a polished, blunt, egg-shaped dalmatian jasper Gem location: nose Weapon: Crash Helmet Allied With: Yellow Diamond Nature: curious, straightforward, observant, hardy, sometimes lazy Strengths: super strength, very hard to budge, thinks things through, can make the ground shake when she stomps Weaknesses: usually doesn’t want to fight unless it’s dire, can be a bit of a softie, likes to sleep Abilities:
stomping to where the ground shakes, spin dash, can make the spots on
her body shine to confuse enemies, has a extreme tolerance to harsh
climates, terrakinesis (the ability to control geologic material such as
rocks, dirt, sand, etc, but not other gems)
A flower like spray of late calcite blades are nestled (having precipitated from carbonate rich meteoric waters, ie rainwater percolating into the ground) above a pale blue fluorite that crystallised from the cooling water rich remnants of a granite. The fluorite displays beautiful cleavage steps reflecting the lines of weakness caused by low numbers of bonds in the crystal structure holding it together along these planes. The specimen comes from China, and sadly I can’t trace a scale.
