Invented by Dr. Greenbox this device could separate rare and precious stones from rock without digging. First tested by prison inmate Rex Shard the kat with a nine-life sentence quickly saw its potential. Breaking it open to gain access to the jewels it had uncovered, Shard accidentally activated the machine, which exploded and transformed him into a crystalline monster. The second prototype of the device was later modified to revert Shard back to normal.
The blueprints for the device (as well as the episode model sheets) refer to it as the Jemkat 6000.
