All About Crystals

Crystal Creations Stuff is finally available and with it, crystals now have lots of new & unique abilities! Your sims can use these crystals to harness the power of the moon, enchanting them with extra properties. Let’s go through all the crystals available, how they can help your sims, and how to make the most of their new characteristics.

Crystals: What They Are And Where To Find Them

There are a total of 27 different crystals available across multiple The Sims 4 packs, and each crystal has its own unique properties. Crystals can be obtained in a few different ways:

  • Sims can find crystals by digging specific rocks that are scattered throughout the different worlds.
  • With Get To Work, sims in the Scientist career can ask their coworkers for crystals.
  • If you have Realm of Magic sims can purchase crystals from the shop in Casters Alley.
  • Crystals can be ordered via the computer.
  • Sims can purchase crystals directly from The All-In-One Gemology Table By Humphrey Inc. when crafting.
  • Rare crystals can be harvested from the Crystal Tree.
    • Crystal Tree seeds can be created once your sim reaches Gemology level 3 by cutting a “Seed-Shaped Gemstone” at The All-In-One Gemology Table By Humphrey Inc.

Crystals have varying levels of rarity, and the most rare crystals cannot be purchased—they will need to be harvested from specific sources.

Harnessing A Crystal’s Benefits

Before charging your crystals your sim should decide what form they want to create with them. Turning a crystal into a piece of jewelry will give their benefits to a sim directly as long as the jewelry is worn, while cutting a decorative gemstone will instead apply benefits to all sims in the vicinity. Cut gemstones lose their powers faster since they affect multiple sims at once.

To charge your crystals and gain their powers your sim needs to leave them on the Mystical Moonlight Crystal Grid during night time (7pm – 7am). Depending on the phase of the moon items can take anywhere from a few hours to a few nights to fully charge, with fuller moon phases making it happen more quickly. Sims also have the option of traveling to the Forgotten Grotto or Sylvan Glade, where crystals will charge no matter the time of day or moon phase.

Crystals will lose their charge after a certain amount of time and/or using their abilities, at which point they’ll need to be recharged.

Making Jewelry

Metals

If you decide to make jewelry with your sim’s crystals, you have a myriad of choices. There are 25 different metals your sims can work with to make earrings, necklaces, bracelets, and rings. Sims can wear the jewelry they craft, gift it to others, sell it, or display it. To wear a piece of jewelry your sim has made, click it in and select “Wear…” and you can choose whether to apply it to every outfit or just the one they’re currently wearing.

Cutting Gemstones

Gem Cuts

If you’d rather spread the wealth of your crystals’ abilities, you can cut them into gemstones instead. There are 11 different cuts your sim can do with more being available as they level up in Gemology: Spire-Shaped, Cabochon-Shaped, Emerald-Cut, Seed-Shaped, Pear-Shaped, Brilliant-Cut, Star-Shaped, Skull-Shaped, Heart-Shaped, Plumbob-Shaped, & Gnome-Shaped. As mentioned previously, the Seed-Shaped gemstone can be planted to grow a Crystal Tree.

Final Thoughts

With the Crystal Creations Stuff pack sims have even more options for what they can do with crystals. This new kit allows your sim to create gorgeous jewelry and carve striking gemstones, and they can imbue their crafted pieces with unique powers thanks to the light of the moon.
