It’s a beautiful day outside. Birds are singing, flowers are blooming. But it is never time to rest! A cloud cover has blocked out the sun, and a blight has overtaken our facilities. But by facilities, we mean Gray Gravel Co. and by blight, we mean massive hordes of robots!

Each of the gemstone medals reuse models from medals awarded during Operation Madness vs Machines: the Fiendish Fuchsite and Treasured Tourmaline medals reuse models for the Chaotic Crystal, the Humanitarian Hiddenite reuses the model for the Royal Rhodonite, and the Barely Benign Bismutotantalite reuses the model for the Burnished Beryl. The Megalomaniac Mastodon medal reuses the model for the Titanium Tank Participant Medal, initially awarded during Operation Titanium Tank.

The gemstone medals initially drop with custom painted colors which are not otherwise available in-game: the Fiendish Fuchsite medal drops with a lavender color, the Humanitarian Hiddenite medal drops with a bright green color, the Barely Benign Bismutotantalite medal drops with a special team color featuring dark orange on RED, and navy blue on BLU, and the Treasured Tourmaline medal drops with a special team color featuring a bright pink on RED, and light blue on BLU. The Megalomaniac Mastodon medal drops pre-painted with Cream Spirit.

Each of the gemstone medals have two styles, named "Normal" and "Gem Only". The "Gem Only" style displays only the gemstone, without the metal frame.
