What are gems used for?
They introduced them but wtf are they for? I turned some stuff into gems then it went into 2 piles? How do i make a stack of them if it splits up?

Its "gems", not "Jens". They're used for trading them and creating booster packs from them.

They can be made by turning trading cards, emoticons and backgrounds into gems. (Not worth it; except for the initial 100 XP -badge you get for it), they can be bought in 1000 gem -sacks from the Steam Community Market.

Similarly, you can sell them in 1000 gem -sacks yourself, and you can use them for creating booster packs for games you own here: http://steamcommunity.com/tradingcards/boostercreator/

Some people use them as trading currency

Otherwise, no real use. There was an auction market in 2014 December, but that's about it.

They were used to bet for games during a sale'ish sort of promotion but apart from that, you can only create booster packs from them. And trade them. And sell them.
