The Sims 4 Crystal Collecting Guide

Gems List and Possible Elements from Geo Council

Collecting Crystals in The Sims 4 means digging up Rocks found around the game's Neighborhoods, Parks, and Secret Areas. Any rock could yield any of these, but don't expect it to be a quick process. Metals, Crystals, MySims Trophies, and Fossils all come from the same spawners so this is quite a long process. Rares are more likely to be found off the beaten path, such as in Forgotten Grotto or areas distant from homes in Oasis Springs. See the Guide to Collections for some general Tips to finding them.

The following list of Crystals indicates what Elements that gem may be broken down to when it is sent to the Geo Council. This is how you collect Elements. You'll get one of the Elements listed in the mail the following day after sending it for $20. The Elements further to the right are generally more rare than those first listed, so it may take multiple attempts to finish that collection.

Get to Work adds two new Crystals: Nitelite and Crandestine, which can be found on the Planet Sixam.

Crystal Crown

The Sims 4 Get Famous features a Celestial Crystal Crown that can be purchased and makes good use of Crystals. Crystals are also utilized in Archaeology

I've noticed the tiny crystals give an energized boost. The large ones don't though.
All the crystals should be giving an energized aura. Maybe you have some other aura that is stronger and is over riding the crystal?
I have found 2 crystals not listed: Nitelite/common $50 and Crandistine/common $40
They are the alien crystals from Sixam. Definitely should be added to the list. Thanks for letting us know. Smile
Stina Bsays...
You are missing the crystals that came with the Jungle Adventure pack. Alexandrite and Amazonite :-)
Can anyone help me find Alexandrite? I have been vacationing to Selvadorada repeatedly for irl weeks. Opening chests, digging the very few crystal spawners I find, and excavating. I get a lot of Amazonite but have never found Alexandrite.

Can anyone help me narrow down how to find it?
After weeks of searching I finally found it in a crystal spawner in Selvadorada. 7 minutes after posting this.
Glad you finally found one! Also if you have Seasons you can find them on the ground where lightning strikes hit. I've actually found more that way then holidaying in the jungle.

Anyone know why I would find Crytacoo on my roof?


If you have Seasons installed lightning strikes leave crystals and other collectables occasionally.


Thanks for having done this chart, it really helps out and is greatly appreciated!

Amber Maguiresays...

where do you find the Fire Opal at with only the sims 4, cats and dog, get to work, and city living?


The dig spots around each world have a chance to spawn a crystal but not a specific crystal, so you will have to send your sim digging each spot many times often to find the specific crystal you need. You can also purchase some crystals from your Sims PC. With City Living there is a sales table vendor that will pop up that sells crystals. You can find this table in either the Spice District or the Arts most often. Take your sim to one of those locations and basically wait there for the day and hope the vendor pops up. I think the Arts district is slightly better for this particular vendor.

anthony lovernsays...

the easiest way I've found to farm rare crystals is to find a diggable rock with crystals sticking out of it, and use the copypasto spell from the magic expansion pack on it repeatedly. i farmed 20 alexandrite in under a half hour that way.

anthony lovernsays...

correction. once you have a rare crystal, you can place it in your house and copypasto it there, getting only that type of crystal. much faster.
