First Appearance "Laser Light Cannon"

Rose Quartz is the mother of Steven and former member of the Crystal Gems. According to Greg Universe, she has given her physical form up in order to give birth to Steven, while passing her Gem onto Steven as well. 


Rose Quartz had long curly pink hair in thick ringlets, pink lipstick and a heavier build than the other Crystal Gems. She is "much" taller than Greg Universe. Rose wore a strapless, white dress with a star-shaped cutout in the stomach area. In "Together Breakfast", her portrait revealed that Rose had a Rose Quartz Gem on her midriff, much like her son, Steven Quartz Universe.

Episode Appearances


Steven Universe

Steven Universe is the son of Rose Quartz. Rose gave up her physical form to bring Steven into the world while in a romantic relationship with Greg Universe (Steven's father). Steven doesn't seem to know much about his mother apart from what the members of the Crystal Gems and his father, Greg Universe have told him. He does think highly of her and insulting her is one of the few things that angers Steven greatly.

Members of the Crystal Gems

Rose Quartz was previously a member of the Crystal Gems before she brought Steven into existence. The group seems to hold her in high esteem. Amethyst is quoted as saying "If Rose were here, this would be so easy" in the episode "Laser Light Cannon." The members of the group seem to mourn her disapearance from the world, but even though she gave up her existence to bring Steven into the world, they do not blame it on him and live with him in the temple.

Greg Universe

Greg Universe was the romantic partner of Rose Quartz until she brought Steven into the world. Greg and Rose seemed to have had a very good relationship, but most of what we know is from Greg's point of view. He said that the two of them met at one of his one-man band concerts in Beach City, where she was the only attendee. He also said that they became inseparable, yet he had no idea "what a magical lady like that ever saw in a plain old dope like [him]." In the episode "Lars and the Cool Kids," it is revealed that Rose saw beauty in everything, referring back to the episode "Laser Light Cannon," when Greg Universe wonders "what a magical lady like that ever saw in a plain old dope like me." It is a reflection on her feelings for Greg to note that Rose used his catchphrase as the activation words of her Light Cannon.


  • In the episode "Laser Light Cannon", the light that came out of the cannon resembled her.
  • A possible reason she married Greg was because of the song he made for her, "Let me Drive my Van into your Heart".
  • In gem stone mythos, rose quartzes are stones associated with love and health.
  • Rose is the only crystal gem to have a last name. Due to the fact that her gem has two words in its name
  • Rose has not been seen with her eyes open in any photos, holograms or manifestations. A mural in the Pyramid Temple in the episode "Serious Steven" depicts Rose Quartz defending herself by some method from another gem. This mural shows her with her eyes open.
  • Rose's gem was located on her stomach, just as Steven's gem is located on his.
  • In the episode "Rose's Room", when Steven was falling through space in Rose's room, the tiny floating whale spoke to him in Rose's voice, saying, "What do you want, Steven?"
  • It has been recently confirmed that Susan Egan is the voice of Rose Quartz.
  • As of the episode, "Lion 2: The Movie" it is quite possible that all gems have multiple weapons to match their own in combat(I.E.: Rose's shield with Lion's sword), meaning that possibly, in future episodes, more weaponry for each of the gems will be revealed. This has yet to be confirmed.
  • It is revealed that there will be more Greg and Rose backstory in future episodes.[1]
  • The fusion gem depicted on the Crystal Temple strongly resembles Rose.
  • In "Monster BuddiesGarnet told Steven that Rose tried to use her powers to save some monsters too, though she was never able to heal.
