Heart Gems are special treasures Starfy collects in order to gain more health.

In 15 certain secret levels, there are big blue treasure chests. Inside them is a Heart Gem. If you collect 3 of them, an extra heart is added to your health bar.

The most you can have at one time is three. Using them to add to your health bar, expectedly, returns the three slots back to zero.
