Crystalline Shards

These crystalline structures are created by large colonies of microorganisms.

— In-Game Description

Crystalline Shards are crystalline structures found on airless planets and moons. They are produced by colonies of microorganisms.

Guide Edit

Crystalline Shards are organic structures that have recently been discovered in the Sanguineous Rim region and beyond. They grow on planets with volcanic activity that are located at least 12,000 LS from the main star. They produce Crystalline Clusters which, when shot from a SRV, drop high-grade materials matching the planet's composition. In other words, they drop the same material as Needle Crystals would in a volcanic site, but there are lots and lots of them. No need to hope for metallic meteorites! No RNG! Simply drive around, shooting and picking up the clusters until your material storage is full![1]

The catch? The closest known sites are 1,500 LY from Sol, in the Sanguineous Rim region. However, it can be worth it if you need to max out on several materials, or for new Commanders wanting to unlock Prof. Palin and stock up on some materials at the same time. To make this more generally useful we would need to complete the list of materials and hopefully find locations closer to the Bubble.[1]

Your Scarab SRV has the tools you will need once you're on the planet's surface, but remember to mount a Detailed Surface Scanner on your ship. It will make it much easier to find the exact positions of the biological and geological surface locations before you land.
