Fusion brings out everything between two people for best or worst. Jasper and Lapis are both ridiculously powerful for gems, and both unstable since neither of them can reconcile their feelings at that part of the story.
We probably didn't scratch the surface on the power levels of gem fusions. Garnet isn't particularly strong since neither Ruby or Sapphire are particularly strong. Together they are stronger, but only a sum of their combined parts, entirely dependent on one another. They couldn't pull themselves together to play a single game of baseball. Opal is strong when Pearl and Amethyst get over their differences, but the incompatibility of the two people often shines through and they split apart, as Amethyst is overcome by her insecurities and Pearl her obsessive behaviour. White actually had fairly decent criticisms for all of them.
While the CG's have their differences, they're still family. Malachite is the example of fusion for completely the wrong reasons, and it's nothing but destructive and counter productive.
