You can get Thunder Crystals in Genshin Impact as part of the fourth stage of the Thunder Sojourn event. Act 4 of the Thunder Sojourn is called Automaton Front. It sees players delve into a domain to defeat the Perpetual Mechanical Array. This stage of Thunder Sojourn should unlock on July 30.

This boss fight can be attempted with friends, and if you successfully complete the domain challenge, you’ll get Thunder Crystals in Genshin Impact as a prize. These can then be spent on rewards including Beidou in the Event Shop. 

Typically, these event battles also include extra challenges such as avoiding damage or completing the fight multiple times which can be taken on to earn greater rewards.

To purchase Beidou, you’ll need to have collected 1,000 Thunder Pellets and 1,000 Thunder Crystals. You can only exchange these for her once, but as one of the best 4-stars in the game, it’s more than worth it putting the time in to earn her. Plus, all Thunder Pellets and Thunder Crystals you get will disappear once the event ends.

That’s all there is to know about how to get Thunder Crystals in Genshin Impact. Stay patient until the new domain opens on July 30, then battle the Perpetual Mechanical Array to earn the Thunder Crystals you’re after.
