As a guess, does it mean that they have their ultimate ready? – Dave McClelland Jan 30 '12 at 3:46

It's an indicator whether or not their ultimate is up.

If the gem is blue, it indicates that the ultimate is off cooldown, but they don't currently have the mana to cast it (credit to @Decency)

League of Legends has something similar.

"Apparently I need another sentence so I don't get this automatically converted to a comment, but that's really all there is to it." Woah wait what?! – Mana Jan 30 '12 at 3:52
@Mana Yeah. Before it just wouldn't let you post if the algorithm thought you didn't meet the guidelines. Now it posts it as a comment. Check the deleted comments on the OP. – Raven Dreamer Jan 30 '12 at 3:55
Wait, I can see deleted comments?! What?! – Mana Jan 30 '12 at 4:15
What if the gem is blue? As I've seen Clockwerk's being blue before. – Simon Jan 30 '12 at 14:12
If the gem is blue it indicates that they have their ultimate off cooldown but don't presently have the mana to cast it. – Decency Feb 1 '12 at 13:00
