That's just the scabbard, Steven. It held your mother's sword. Nothing else could fit so perfectly inside.
|—Pearl, "Rose's Scabbard"|
The scabbard is pink, with a smooth, pale white edge and tip, and has Rose's symbol in the center. It is presumably made of some type of metal, judging by the sound when Lion grabbed it with his mouth. Like many Gem creations, it has survived millennia with no sign of wear.
Rose used it throughout the Rebellion until it was lost during the battle at the Gem Battlefield over 5,500 years ago. Pearl searched in vain for this memento of Rose, but it remained lost until Lion found it hidden in soil while the Crystal Gems were looking for weapons in the Strawberry Battlefield. It was given to Steven by Pearl, and it is currently stored inside Lion's pocket dimension at the end of the episode, along with Rose's sword.
Connie carries the sword and scabbard while searching for the corrupted gems with Steven. This is the first episode where the scabbard has straps to be worn across the back.
Connie brings the sword and scabbard to Pearl's swordfighting lessons. When Connie and Steven fuse into Stevonnie to practice as a fusion, they wear the scabbard on their back during the first lesson.
In Pearl's memories, the scabbard was in Pearl's possession while she discussed with Rose Quartz their plan to stage Rose shattering Pink Diamond. This suggests the scabbard was lost in the Gem Battlefield after Pearl and Rose had staged Pink Diamond's shattering.
