Every now and then, instead of getting a weapon gem over SpotPass, Palutena sends over a ??? gem instead. They can't be converted into weapons, they can't be fused, and selling them provides a measly 5 hearts.

If I had to guess, these gems represent locked weapons (e.g. Zodiac weapons) and will reveal their "true forms" once said weapons are unlocked. Is this it, or something else entirely?

The gem is ??? because you have to unlock it in a Treasure Hunt, or find the equivalent Zodiac weapon.

All I know is that you unlock the ??? Gem if you continue playing the game, it eventually will become a weapon, or you haven't found it in the treasure hunt.
