They're a shiny teal/blue which sets them apart from the other ore types in the game. Crystal Chunks are key ingredients for making certain rare equipment and materials, and you will need a lot of them. This guide will help you find them, mine them, and more!
Genshin Impact Crystal Chunk map for farming runs
Crystal Chunk locations
Below are confirmed areas where Crystal Chunks can be found. For more help with your farming, check out this super handy resource mapping tool.
- Stormbearer Point
- Stormterror's Lair
- Mt. Aozang Cave
- Qingyun Peak
- Lingju Pass Entrance
To farm Crystal Chunks in Genshin Impact, the map suggests you should hit Stormterror's Lair and all over Qingyun Peak, if you can work out an efficient route between all of those icons. Some of the more condensed places to farm Crystal Chunks are just south of Qingce village, where there are five ore deposits right next to each other. They're clustered just north of the river from Mt. Aozang on the map, the icons overlap each other, that's how close they are.
Crystal Chunk mining
Crystal Chunks can be obtained in Genshin Impact's open world by mining. To mine them, go to the locations listed above and search for deposits of the shiny teal crystals. Unfortunately since they are a higher value crafting material, it may not be easy to find them even once you are in an area where they spawn, though using your Elemental Sight will help. All ore glows orange when Elemental Sight is active. Once you find a deposit, smash it to obtain your Crystal Chunks. It's recommended to use a Claymore character for this, as they can destroy ore faster than characters that use other weapons.
Crystal Chunk Expeditions
Once you have reached Adventure Rank 14, you will gain access to Expeditions in the Adventurer's Guild. With Expeditions, you can send characters that aren't in your party off for 4, 8, 12, or 20 hours to gain extra rewards for you. The longer they're gone for, the better your reward will be. If you want to passively farm Crystal Chunks, this is the way to go.
There are mining Expeditions in the Whispering Woods, Dadaupa Gorge, and Yaoguang Shore. If you send characters on 20 hour Expeditions to these specific mining areas, they will return with several Crystal Chunks, usually between six and eight.
Crystal Chunk respawn times
Ore and Crystal nodes rest when you harvest them, instead of when the servers do their daily reset, meaning about every 48-72 hours or so.
