The Sims 4 Elements Collecting Guide
Element List with Metals and Crystals Made of Each Element
Collecting Elements in The Sims 4 means gathering Crystals and Metals from digging Rocks found around Sims 4 Neighborhoods, Secret Areas, and Parks. Each of these are made of various Elements, and can be analyzed by contacting the Geo Council when clicking it in your Inventory. They will tell you the composition of the Metal/Crystal, which will be from two to three Elements. Sending it in for $20 will give you a chance to get one of the Elements from that collectible in the mail the following day.
The List below can be very helpful to obtaining all of the Elements. The Crystals and Metals you can get each Element from are listed by which has the highest chance first, and generally in an order from common to more rare. You wouldn't want to get the common Melacoo Element from a rare Rainborz Crystal, but you can. It would be better to use Sapphire (listed first). But, in case you want to finish the collection and don't mind what you consume, I've bothered to list all the Crystals/Metals from which that Element may be obtained.
Get to Work Additions: You can skip sending things to the Geo Council if you own Get to Work and take a job in the Scientist Active Career, as you're able to analyze crystals and metals yourself. The EP adds one new Element, which is in this list: Xenopetrium. This element only comes from metals and crystals found on the hidden planet Sixam.
Elements give off a Focused Aura when placed and the Aura is enabled.

Guide to Cheats
I've been having intense difficulty completing the elements collection due to not being able to find Crytacoo anywhere. Sure, I've found the metals and crystals that should form Cryatcoo multiple times but everytime I send them off I get another element those crystals/metals could create.
I understand that these crystals and metals can come back with a different element than the one I want, however, it's come back with something else so many times I'm starting to think my game is bugged.
I tried repairing my game and nothing changed, I removed my mods and cc but that doesn't help either. Any tips?
Any reply is appreciated, thanks!
Thanks so much!
