I believe the solution is:

Small explanation:

If there is a dragon adjacent to a gem, then there must be a line between them. For some puzzles like #1, #2, and #4, three lines are the minimum one as we cannot construct a solution with only two lines.

And the secret word is:

JASPER, anagram of the letters formed by the lines taken from the letters formed by the lines, reading from red to purple gems in rainbow order (thanks @Deusovi!).

• (It's not just an anagram - the gems are all different colors, so you can get the secret word by reading in rainbow order!)
