Gems rule
Rulestring 4568/3457
Character Exploding

Gems is a Life-like cellular automaton in which dead cells get born if they have precisely three, four, five or seven live neighbors, and in which live cells will survive if they have precisely four, five, six or eight live neighbors. Small random initial configurations in Gems tend to turn into high-period oscillators (the "gems" the rule is named after); larger random initial configurations explode slowly.


No still lives or oscillators with odd period have been found in Gems.


Gems has a single known spaceship moving orthogonally at a speed of c/5648, Eppstein's glider 13047.
