(This section is outdated, and will have a full update in the future to better reflect the details and information we now know about gems)
Overview: Gems are a species of sapient Gemstones/Minerals that project a Hardlight body they use for communication, movement and general autonomy. Functionally ageless gems can live for thousands of years without degradation or issues. They equally don't need to eat or even sleep and do not need to breath in any form, only needing to exert air or gases out of their mouth to speak and talk. Despite this some gems claim that they like to exhale air or 'breath' even when not speaking as they find it feels comfortable or helps them relax. Gems are technically a genderless species, but most seem to use gender-neutral (They, Them) or female pronouns, and in some cases male pronouns.
A Extraterrestrial species in nature, Gems while occupying the Earth in some form for thousands of years, are not a native species to the planet, their 'Homeworld' as they call it exists far far away from Earth and its Solar system.
Abilities: (all Gems can do these, albeit some need to train)
Regenerations: If a gem’s body is badly damaged (think fatal wound on human) they can retreat into their gem for several days/months/weeks ect to regenerate and heal. They can also change their appearance when they remerged
Shapeshifting: Gems remain humanoid as a matter of convenience, in truth gems can shape shift into basically anything, however if they are beaten around too much they revert back to their humanoid forms
Weapon summoning: Gems are able to conjure weapons from there gem and use them for defence and combat, unless otherwise specified gems can summon three of their weapons at once, if a weapons is dropped or loss it will vanish within a few seconds allowing to user to create another one. Weapons will also vanish is someone tries to use them without the owner’s consent.
Bubble creation:Coloured bubbles which can hold small objects and be warped to locations that they have created beacons for (Or what they consider 'Home'), a common location is a Gem bubble room within the crystal temple. Most gems can break out of other gems bubbles easily.
Flashlight/Gem Glow: It has been shown that most gems are able to cause their Gemstone(s) to glow,illuminating the area around them. If there gemstone is placed ideally they can also use them to act as a Flashlight to help direct the illumination in a cone out from their gemstone. This light is tinted by the Colour of their Gemstone(s).
Gem fusions: Two gems or more can synchronize (Usually using a dance) to form a fusion. These fusions are often bigger than normal gems and significantly more powerful. However the more polar the personalities of the fusing gems are the harder it is to do. Gems that are fused also have the risk of losing their individuality of they remain fused for too long.More information is Here
Unique Ability:Gems also have unique abilities that almost no one else has. Examples of this include, sand manipulation, lava immunity, cloud creation, lighting creation and so on.
