 Monster Manual
Psionic Powers:
A gem dragon knows and manifestspsionic powers as a psion of the level and disciplineindicated in its variety description, gaining bonuspower points for a high key ability score. Even if a par-ticular power noted for a dragon doesn’t appear in the
Psionics Handbook 
as a psionic power (instead appearingin the
Player’s Handbook

The psionic abilities a gem dragon canfreely manifest depend on its age and variety. It gains theabilities listed for its age plus all previous ones, using itsage category or its psion manifester level (whichever ishigher) as the manifester level. The save DC is 10 + thedragon’s key ability modifier + power level. All psionicabilities noted for a gem dragon are usable a number of times per day, as noted under each variety.

Theysometimes serve as intermediaries betweenwarring dragons and even humanoid civiliza-tions.An amethyst dragon has lavender skin withsmall scales of a light, translucent purplewhen first hatched. As they grow older, theirscales gradually darken and take on a crys-talline quality. The amethyst dragon’s scalesare shaped like mineral crystals that form nat-urally in the earth.Amethyst dragons live on the tops of isolatedmountains in deep caves.
