Genshin Impact: Where to find Crystal Chunks

Where art thou Crystal Chunks?!?

In Genshin Impact, there are different rarities of material; as you explore the world of Teyvat, you'll find Iron Ore, which is the lowest valuable Ore. Then, as you progress, you'll find White Iron Chunks, then so on and so forth. However, don't stop collecting Iron Ore, as every material is needed in Genshin Impact.

Where to find Crystal Chunks

To find Crystal Chunks in Genshin Impact, there are two main places to acquire them. First is the Stormterror Ruins in Mondstadt, and the second is Quigyun Peak in the Liyue region. Of course, you can send away an unused character on an expedition to also earn you some Crystal Chunks.

It's either or which area you go to first, Stormterror Ruins or Qingyun Peak, as both are are packed full of Crystal Chunks for mining, so bring with you a claymore user if you are after speed! Each area is pretty frustrating to navigate, as, at Stormterror ruins, you have the barriers to contend with, but at Quigyun Peak, you have the height.

We recommend clearing out Stormterror Ruins first, then moving on to Qingyun Peak, as there is more there but in a wider area, as you can find some in Huaguang Stone Forest and Jueyun Karst. You can mine small amounts in both Mondstadt and Liyue, yet these are tiny compared to the amount elsewhere. Every time a Crystal Chunk is mined, you can receive 1-3 pieces, and the normal respawn time is every 72 hours.

There are mining Expeditions in the Whispering Woods, Dadaupa Gorge, and Yaoguang Shore. If you send characters on 20-hour Expeditions to these specific areas, they will return with seven to eight Crystal Chunks.

 Crystal Chunk is only used within weapon crafting and crating gadgets, such as the Resonance Stones, Wind Catcher, and Treasure Compass. Each time you need to craft a weapon, it will take 50 Crystal Chunks, so you truly need a lot of it. With the release of Genshin Impact 1.2, three new weapons are being added, and each one to craft also takes 50 Crystal Chunks, so it's better to farm for this material now than to farm it on release. More information on the weapons can be found in our Genshin Impact 1.2 guide. The weapons that can be crafted with Crystal Chunks are the following:

Hey, my name is Mark, and I'm a video game enthusiast! My earliest memory was playing Worms on the Amiga against my Godmother, yes the Amiga, massive box type thing, needed eighty-five thousand floppy disks to play one game, maybe a slight exaggeration. Ah, those were the days! I love RPG’s, and The Legend of Zelda series. Dogs are pretty awesome.
