I have had geology class and the professor was impressed someone could finally answer his questions. (When I see purple, I think it's amethyst, when I see green, I think it's peridot. Not always true but still )I loved Magic School Bus as a kid. It doesn’t really hold up IMO, but it’s good for the kids.
I might be stretching this a bit, but I think Steven Universe can teach some geology. I can’t bring a bunch of minerals to the science club I taught without at least one kid screaming about how they heard it on SU.
I think fusions are a bit arbitrary. I think they just go for something that looks good, color wise. Also minor nitpick, but garnet is technically an entire family of minerals (Garnet on the show appears to be Almandine). Also in real life rubies are red sapphires, yet the show treats them as different “races”.I have had geology class and the professor was impressed someone could finally answer his questions.

I do wonder how they came up with the "fusions"?
Garnet X3 Y2 [Si O4]3
Ruby Al2 O3
Saphire Al2 O3
(I used spaces to make it readable... sorry hardcore chemists)
I have learned both Si and Al can form certain typical forms (octaeders, tetraheders), but I don't understand how Ruby and Saphire could together possibly form Garnet.
Another fusion, however, made sense to me. I forgot which one.
Hence the X and Y. Any atom that fits in the (SiO4)3 grid will do. I don't think Garnet from Steven Universe necessarily has got to be a pure mineral. Pure almandine only has iron and aluminium as X and Y. Garnet could have lots of different atoms.
