Certus Quartz Crystal

Certus Quartz Crystal is an item added by Applied Energistics 2. Certus Quartz Crystal can be obtained by mining Certus Quartz Ore. This item is used in the majority of crafting recipes in AE2, such as Energy Cells and Formation Cores. It exists in two forms: the regular Certus Quartz Crystal and the Pure Certus Quartz Crystal. These are both interchangeable in most crafting recipes.


To create a Pure Certus Quartz Crystal, the player must craft a Certus Quartz Seed and drop it into water. The process takes about 8.33 hours, which can be reduced by using Crystal Growth Accelerators.
