The "Famethyst" is a group of Homeworld Quartz guards (Amethysts, Jaspers, and a lone Carnelian) stationed at Pink Diamond's Zoo. Debuting in "That Will Be All", this 'sisterly' group of Quartz Gems was nicknamed the "Famethyst" by the Crystal Gems' Amethyst upon discovering that they were friendly, and that many of them originated from the same Prime Kindergarten as her. They were subordinates of Pink Diamond, until being reassigned to Blue Diamond after she was shattered. These Gems are commanded under Holly Blue Agate.

Personality

Like the Crystal Gem Amethyst, the Famethyst has a happy-go-lucky, and humorous personality. This trait can often leave them acting unprofessional, such as when two Amethysts pretend that they're going to throw Steven into space, and when they all goof off as a group, pretending they're going to beat up Steven, Greg, and Amethyst.

The Famethyst does not like their leader, Holly Blue Agate. This is because she frequently abuses the Famethyst both physically and mentally. Because of their distaste for Holly Blue Agate, the Famethyst assists in helping Steven and Greg escape from the Zoo. The Famethyst do, however, listen to Holly Blue Agate, as they can be seen performing their jobs around the facility. This is most likely due to the consequences of insubordination.

History

Each member of the Famethyst was created on Earth in either the Prime or Beta Kindergarten during the Gem Homeworld's control of the planet. Each of these Gems were created for Pink Diamond, but after she was shattered, they were reassigned to Blue Diamond and sent to Pink Diamond's Zoo in order to maintain and protect the facility, under Holly Blue Agate's command.

"Beta"

A defective "Carnelian" who came out of her Beta Kindergarten hole sideways was briefly alluded to by Peridot, presumably referencing this defective Carnelian.

One defective Jasper's hole in the Beta Kindergarten also is briefly referred to as "skinny" by Amethyst, presumably referencing the hole of the defective Jasper nicknamed "Skinny".

"Gem Heist"

Four Amethysts appear in "Gem Heist"; two of them are in charge of guarding the door in the Zoo's cargo bay (one of which is a member of the "Famethyst"). The two Amethysts tease the Crystal Gems when they land on the Zoo, resulting in a scolding from Holly Blue Agate.

"The Zoo"

In "The Zoo", several Amethysts are seen entering the boundaries of Pink Diamond's Zoo to console the heartbroken Zoomans (including three members of the "Famethyst"). One Amethyst later angrily informs Greg and Steven of the trouble they are in.

"That Will Be All"

In "That Will Be All", this mentioning of "trouble" turns out to be a prank by Amethyst and the many other Homeworld Quartz she has met (whom she refers to collectively as "the Famethyst"), three of which having been formed right above her. These Amethysts inform her of her serial number being Facet-5 Cut-8XM. Among the Amethysts and Jaspers are two defective Gems: "Skinny", a tall and skinny Jasper, and Carnelian, shorter than most Quartz.

From this interaction, it can be assumed that Quartz Gems are generally good-natured (with Jasper and Holly Blue Agate being exceptions), as "the Famethyst" does not hold any grudge against the Crystal Gems.

"Back to the Kindergarten"

To cheer up Peridot, Amethyst suggests they visit the Kindergarten, wishing to see her former home after having met the other Amethysts who were also created there. At the Kindergarten, Peridot reveals the designation order of the Gems made there after Amethyst incorrectly guesses the exit holes of her fellow Amethysts.

Amethysts

8XG

Su amy 2

Amethyst Facet-5 Cut-8XG (nicknamed "8XG") appears in "That Will Be All", as one of the members of the "Famethyst" that the Crystal Gems' Amethyst meets. She is from the Prime Kindergarten, and quickly bonds with Amethyst over their shared heritage.

AmethystGem2

She has pink skin and bright white hair, and she has a circular purple gemstone with a hexagonal facet. Her gemstone is located on the back of her right hand. Her gemstone shares its color-orientation with the Crystal Gem Amethyst.

8XJ

Su amy 3

Amethyst Facet-5 Cut-8XJ (nicknamed "8XJ") appears in "That Will Be All", as one of the members of the "Famethyst" that the Crystal Gems' Amethyst meets. She is from the Prime Kindergarten, and quickly bonds with Amethyst over their shared heritage. She was very briefly mistaken for Amethyst Facet-5 Cut-8XH, due to Amethyst's inattentivity to Homeworld gem-codes. She is mentioned again by Amethyst and Peridot in "Back to the Kindergarten".

AmethystGem2

She has violet skin and curly off-white purple hair, and black, bushy eyebrows. She has a circular purple gemstone with a hexagonal facet, located on her left shoulder. Her curly hair is caused by and directly related to iron levels and deposits from her formation in the Prime Kindergarten, as explained by Peridot. Her gemstone shares its color-orientation with the Crystal Gem Amethyst.

8XL

Amethyst Facet-5 Cut-8XL (nicknamed "8XL") appears in "That Will Be All", as one of the members of the "Famethyst" that the Crystal Gems' Amethyst meets. She is from the Prime Kindergarten, and quickly bonds with Amethyst over their shared heritage. She is mentioned again by Amethyst and Peridot in "Back to the Kindergarten".

AmethystGem2

She has purple skin and lavender hair, and she has a circular purple gemstone with a hexagonal facet. Her gemstone is located on her right hip. Her gemstone shares its color-orientation with the Crystal Gem Amethyst.

8XH

Amethyst Facet-5 Cut-8XH (nicknamed "8XH") is presumably one of the members of the "Famethyst" that the Crystal Gems' Amethyst meets. From the Prime Kindergarten, she is mentioned by Amethyst in "That Will Be All", when she accidentally calls "8XJ" by this name.

As it is not mentioned who is 8XH in "That Will Be All", it is unknown which of the other Amethysts is "8XH". It is unknown if 8XH is a member of the "Famethyst" (or if she's located in the Human Zoo, for that matter).

8XK

Amethyst Facet-5 Cut-8XK (nicknamed "8XK") is likely among the members of the "Famethyst" that the Crystal Gems' Amethyst meets. From the Prime Kindergarten, she is mentioned by Amethyst in "Back to the Kindergarten". However, similar to above, it isnt clear which of the Famethyst she is, so she remains ambiguous, as she was not pointed out in "That Will Be All".

Jaspers

Skinny

SkinnyJasperbyDavi

"Skinny" is a defective Jasper from the Beta Kindergarten. She was (presumably) mentioned briefly by Amethyst in "Beta" but has made her official appearance in "That Will Be All". Unlike other Jaspers, she is tall and skinny instead of being muscular and bulky.

As her description goes, she has moderately light orange skin with scarlet markings. Her eyes are yellow with black irises, has feathery black eyebrows, and resembles her perfect sister Jasper in this manner. One defective Jasper's hole in the Beta Kindergarten is briefly referred to as "Skinny" by Amethyst in "Beta", presumably referencing this defective Jasper.

Carnelian

Carnelian - Left Shoulder - Round Hexagonal - Short

Carnelian is a defective Quartz soldier from the Beta Kindergarten who briefly appeared in "That Will Be All". She, like the Crystal Gems' Amethyst, is smaller than she should be (albeit slightly taller than Amethyst).

CarnelianGemRotated

She has a circular orange-red gemstone with a hexagonal facet. Her gemstone is located on her left shoulder, and seems to possess a slightly larger gemstone than her peers.

She has bright scarlet skin, darkish-maroon hair, and peachy-orange eyes. She also possesses spaced, crowded teeth uncharacteristic of any other gem. Another notable trait is her catlike lips, just like Crystal Gem Amethyst, whom she boasts a slight height advantage over.

A defective "Carnelian" who came out of her Beta Kindergarten hole sideways was briefly alluded to by Peridot in "Beta", presumably referencing this defective Carnelian. However, this is more vague than Skinny's exit-hole connection, as much of the Beta Kindergarten was orange and red.

Episode Appearances

Trivia

  • All Amethysts are voiced by Michaela Dietz (who voices the Crystal Gems' Amethyst); all Jaspers and the defective Carnelian are voiced by Kimberly Brooks (who also voices Jasper).
  • So far, it is true that Gems of the same gemstone also share the same voice, albeit with some differences in tone. Their appearances are also nearly identical, excluding gemstone placement and minor outfit details.
    • Both Carnelian and "Skinny" are voiced by Kimberly Brooks, despite being two different types of quartz.
