the legend

befor the universe was made there was nothing but one gem this was originaly going to be a creationary gem that would make the universe. but somehow the gem cracked and was shatered into three equal peaces unleashing there energy that trigered the big bang. when the big bang finished the three gem shards begin to form into the gems they are today. the first to form was onix the gem of darkness, then the second one to form was sapphire the gem of ice, and the third to form was emerald the gem of life. useing there combined powers they crafted the universe creating the stars, the planets, and the galaxys. one day they found drifting shards from the explosion that created them and with the life essonts of emerald they transformed the shards into gems begining the age of the gems.

the lost part
