Believed to be a cousin of the rock slime, the crystal slime is covered in a crown of shimmering, crystal spikes. These spikes seem to form from the crystal slime generating a tremendous amount of internal heat and warping the minerals around them; a truly alien behaviour.
The sharp crystals adorned on the crystal slime's crown will cause a great deal of harm if touched. Worse still, the crystal slime routinely creates large patches of dangerous crystals in the environment around them. Thought to be a means of expelling internal heat, these crystal patches are ultra-hot and can be shattered if splashed with water.
Though the crystals produced by a crystal slime are highly unstable, a crystal plort, like all plorts, is far more pure and can be used by slime scientists to engineer a variety of metals that are entirely transparent. This innovation has lead to metropolitan areas on Earth completely transforming visually, allowing more light to reach the streets and the space as a whole a chance to 'breathe.' Architects often describe these transparent metals as 'so totally cooler than normal, boring metals'. - Slimepedia
- Their crystals can be broken with water, so try to keep some on you in case you come across a Crystal Slime.
- If you don't have any, their crystals usually break by themselves after an in-game hour.
- Plort Collector is necessary if you want to keep them in a corral, or else you'll take a massive amount of damage.
- As with the Rock Slime, watch out so that you don't accidentally step on them.
- This is the second slime that is a relative to some other type of slime, with it being related the Rock Slime.
