  • Ever wonder where Garnets visor comes from? Well I think I've worked it out.

    Many people think her visor comes from Sapphire. The reason being is that Garnet apears to "summon" it like a gem weapon, so since we know Ruby's weapon is a gauntlet it is safe to assume the visor comes from Sapphire. It's also belived that the reason Shapphire has it is to protect her eye since it is presumably the sorce of her Future vision. 

    I have a different theory. I belive that the visor is not from Sapphire, but from Ruby, although (like Ruby's gauntlet) Sapphire does have some infuence on it.

    Firstly, let's look at Gem visors in general. There are a few Gems that have them, they are Peridot, Doc (Ruby) and Topaz (you could also inclued Jaspers helmet as having a visor if you want). The thing these Gems have in common is that they are all 'military' Gems, Rubies and Topazes are soilders, whilst Peridot (our Peridot at least) appears to be a military technician of sorts. 

    Now, Peridots we can assume all have visors since they all need eye protection. But what about the soilders. Well I think th visors are used to symbilise rank. That is, Doc has a visor to show she is the leader of the Ruby sqaud.

    I think that all Rubies have the potential to summon visors but it is lock away in their Gem code and it gets unlock once a Ruby is promoted. However, our Ruby  was never promoted by Homeworld and can't summon her visor on her own. That's where Sapphire comes in. Sapphire is a naturaly high ranking Gem, so it's likely that when Garnet is formed it "tricks" Ruby's Gem into unlocking her visor so Garnet can summon it any time she likes.

    But why is it opaque?

    Well, thats the "Sapphire influence" I mentioned. Whilst I don't beleve that the visor comes from Sapphire as eye protection, I do think there is some truth to it.

    Sapphire almost always has her eye covered, so whilst I don't think this is to protect from harm, I do think that it is important to keep her eye covered for her future vision to work. I think that Garnets visor serves a similar funtion. Keeps her eye covered so she can use her Future vision.

    Sugilite dosn't have her "Sapphire eye" covered, but then again she doesn't seen patient enough for seer powers. 

    And Sardonyx? Well that's a whole other theory.

    • Really good theory! i don't know what else to put oh well

      Also, Peridot could be a high ranked gem since YD give her the mission of the cluster, so yeah, this makes sense

      i think garnet wears a visor because it looks cool

      or rather the cyrstal gems perfer to look human in order not to scare the inhabitants, and three eyes would be scary.

      And your theory isn't a bad one.

      Well the Humans aren't preturbed by the gem's apperance or abilities (Save maybe Steven) so you could assume that all of human history and perception was impacted by the gems, so they wouldn't be scared so much as surprised by garnet's eye, like how the Maheshwarens (I don't think I spelt that right) weren't scared by Alexandrite's arms, just by the fact she was absolutely ginormous. And they were just confused by the fact that she literally exploded into other....smoller.....coloured humans, but they were worried by her face breaking, which I wouldn't blame them for being scared by that.

      That's just a shadow made by Ruby's hair or Steven's head in her eyes.

      For me, Garnet's visor is just aesthetic. Maybe because of Sapphire's tradition of the hair covering her eye

      the emotion of the moment, sorry :T

      I was reffering to Ruby, the visor comes from her, that foreshadowing with a shadow confirms it

    • I mean, why else you will put a shadow that has the shape of some glasses on Ruby when you are Rebecca Sugar, the empress of foreshadowing?

      As i said, LapisLazuliisthebest is right and that proves it brutally
