** In the third series, the children of the House of Topaz are referred to with individual names by their parents; either Gemworld conventions changed in the years between the second and third series, or possibly they are personal names are only used within the families of the individual houses.

Amethyst was initially the main feature in ''Sword of Sorcery'', a Comicbook/{{New 52}} anthology comic series that launched in September 2012. This version started things over from scratch with 17 year-old Amy learning her true identity for the first time after a life on the road with her mother. This was significantly DarkerAndEdgier than previous versions of the character (her first action scene had her stopping a group of would-be rapists from raping a girl), and only lasted eight issues.

After the original creators left, it was decided by DC to boost Amethyst's sales by tying her to the rest of Franchise/TheDCU, in particular the war between the Lords of Order and Chaos, which was a major plotline at the time. But the new stories, written by Keith Giffen and Mindy Newell, shifted entirely from fantasy adventure to horror. Amethyst was blinded; found out that she was actually the product of an illicit affair between a Lord of Order and her mother; several characters met horrible deaths (in particular, Carnelian's [[spoiler:who almost dies giving "birth" to his father Opal,]] was pure horror) and ultimately, Amethyst is forced to merge with a Lord of Chaos in order to save the Gemworld. The series was then, very unsurprisingly cancelled.

* OutsideContextVillain: [[spoiler:Eclipso.

* NobleDemon: Lady Mordiel is undiscutably power-hungry and evil, but she ''does'' have some moral standards. When killing a girl with a small fraction of her family blood to absorb her power, she has the family compensated for the loss, and when she later arrives on a battlefield, she has the bodies of her sister's followers be properly buried.
