Pineapple Opal, also known as Ikaite, is a gemsona created by N.R. Wynter. She is a hypothetical fusion of Fire Agate and Garnet (and, by extension, Ruby and Sapphire).

Appearance

Pine-with-shades

Pineapple Opal is a towering skeletal fusion who is taller than Sugilite. Her form only has a few elements that resemble her fusees, which may be due to the fusion's instability. She has four boney arms which are capable of twisting together. Instead of legs she has a headless torso attached to two round jaws. Her gemstones are located on her top right hand, top left hand, and on the left shoulder blade.

She has a long, withered face with three eyeballs crammed into one eye socket. She has a pair of dark green shades she usuallly wears over her eye socket.Flesh is missing from the neck, fully exposing the inside of her jaw. Despite her decayed features, she has visible plump lips, a feature shared by both of her fusees. Her spine is visible interchanging from purple to white depending on what it's attached to. Pineapple Opal wears a shiny rib cage with a star carving on the front and two large shoulder blades that resemble shoulder pads. Her thin arms white gloves that cover the middle finger, something seen on Garnet. Yellow and green fire burst out from the top of her scalp, between the jaws on her waist, on the headless torso and its wide arms. The fire on her scalp resemble a plume of hair with two giant floating eyeballs inside.

Personality

Because of her fusees being at odds with each other, Pineapple Opal or Ikaite is always at conflict with herself. Both Fire Agate and Garnet are leaders who always seek control of situations causing them to both compete for control over the fusion. On top of their history during the Gem War and Fire Agate's hatred towards the Crystal Gems doesn't allow their personalities to merge. Rather, the fusion displays them separately where one or both can be dominant at once. This is noted to cause the fusion to have poor coordination and trouble speaking as well as de-fuse often.

On the rare chance that Fire Agate and Garnet can hold onto the fusion long enough and lose themselves will Pineapple Opal's true personality come forward. Fueled by hatred and malice, she is one incapable of moving from the past and dig up old grudges that lie within both fusees, hidden or not. The fusion has no self control over her anger and would strike anyone who crosses her path.

It's said that when they first fused, they even fought over what to call themselves. Although Steven had suggested Pineapple Opal due to realizing a trend among their other fusions (i.e. Grape Agate and Cherry Opal), they decided on Ikaite. In a hypothetical scenario, if Garnet and Fire Agate are able to cooperate and improve their relationship, the fusion will re-name herself Pineapple Opal.  

Abilities

Pineapple Opal has standard Gem abilities.

Although Pineapple Opal is a strong fusion, her instability makes her weak in fights.

Fusions:

Skillsets:

  • Pata Sword Proficiency: Garnet's gauntlets and Fire Agate's rapier form a pata sword. Its long blade makes it easy for Pineapple Opal to pierce and slice at opponents.
    • Dual Wield: Pineapple Opal summon multiple pata swords to each of her arms to fight.

Unique Abilities

  • Energy Manipulation: Combining Fire Agate's pyrokinesis and Garnet's electrokinesis results Pineapple Opal being able to control raw energy.
    • Energy Absorption: Pineapple Opal is able to drain light from various sources, including Gems. This doesn't physically harm gemstones, but absorbing enough energy will cause the Gem to lose their physical form temporarily. The extra energy Pineapple Opal gains increases her strength and defense for a short period of time.
    • Ray/Beam Attacks: Pineapple Opal can summon beams or rays of energy from the environment or her floating eyes.
  • Pyrokinesis: An ability from Fire Agate, Pineapple Opal can create and control yellow and green colored fire. It is an ability that is constantly used as fire oozes from multiple parts of her body.
  • Future Vision: An ability inherited from Garnet, Pineapple Opal can predict outcomes of the near future.
  • Heat Resistance: Both Fire Agate and Garnet share this ability. This allows Pineapple Opal to withstand extreme temperatures.

Relationships

Steven

Steven is the only one Pineapple Opal has a clear relationship with. While she hates the rest of the Crystal Gems, she tolerates Steven enough to at least listen to his suggestions.

Trivia

  • The name of Pineapple Opal's fusion dance is called "Séance". It is a meeting involving a group of people who attempt to communicate with the dead.
  • All fusions involving Fire Agate, Ruby, and Sapphire have gems named after fruit.

Gemology

Pineapple opal in real life.

  • Pineapple opal is an opal variety.
    • It has a chemical composition of SiO2 · nH2O, have a hardness of 5½ - 6 , and an amorphous crystal system.
  • It is a pseudomorph of opal after glauberite (or ikaite).
  • Opal pseudomorphs are created by the deposition of opal in casts (molds), whether organic or inorganic. Pineapple opal is formed when glauberite is replaced by calcite and then become opalised.
  • These are very rare and can only be found at the White Cliffs opal fields in New South Wales, Australia.
  • It's estimated that fewer than two hundred pineapple opals have been discovered.
  • Opals contain small amounts of water.
  • Because it is an opal pseudomorph, it is a birthstone for the month of October.
  • Opal’s name is derived from the Indian (Sanskrit) word “úpala” meaning “valuable stone”. However, it could have also come from the Greek word “opalus” meaning  “stone from several elements”.
  • Metaphysically, opals are stones of inspiration. They enhance creativity and imagination. Opals can also improve memory, happiness, and self-worth while dispelling confusion. Additionally called as the Eye Stone, which pleases sense of sight.
