Crystal is a resource in ARK: Survival Evolved used for crafting various items. It is especially useful in the end-game.

Gathering[edit | edit source]

Crystal are best gathered with a metal pick or with certain creatures; stone picks can work but provide a very low drop chance. It can be acquired by mining white crystals. White crystals are the primary source which can be mined, stalactites in caves also provide crystal. Some others are just decorative.

Extinction[edit | edit source]

In the Extinction DLC, crystals can be harvested from Lampposts, Benches and Tables in the Sanctuary.

Aberration[edit | edit source]

In the Aberration DLC, crystals can be harvested from Green Gem (Aberration), Blue Gem (Aberration), or Red Gem (Aberration) patches at a much higher efficiency than white crystal patches. White crystals are also much more rare, with the colored gems being common throughout the map.

Locations[edit | edit source]

Crystal can be found in caves throughout the Ark, as well as near the top of mountains and in the snow biome. Below are all of the crystal locations for The Island. For a larger map including the other resources, see the Strategic Resource Map.

  • The Frozen Tooth at 35 latitude and 58 longitude has extremely high quantities of crystal deposits at and around the summit. However caution is advised while attempting to descend the mountain, as it is extremely steep and quite easy to trip and fall.
  • For a low level character there is a small mountain in the Southern Islets at around 75.7 latitude and 47.2 longitude which has a small supply of crystal. The eastern side of the mountain is easy to climb, and the area itself is fairly benign, hosting mostly low level herbivores with the occasional Raptor and rare Carno.

Below are all of the crystal locations for The Center. For a larger map including the other resources, see the Strategic Resource Map.
