[List of appearances]

Part 52 is crystal, originating in Aquazone in 1995. Part 52 has since been featured in many themes, including Rock Raiders, Power Miners, and others. It was included in the Space Port theme in a rare Chrome Green colour, but there has never been another part in that colour since.

Crystals can represent many different things, from gold nuggets to energy crystals. They often serve crucial roles, such as how they were the counterpoint of Aquazone, Rock Raiders, and Power Miners sets. They can also be simply decoration; an example is 10196 Grand Carousel.

Crystals originated in Aquazone, being a chrome colour. They were fought over by the Aquanauts and Aquasharks, then mined by the Aquaraiders, and fought over by the Hydronauts and Stingrays. Here they were needed to supply power and oxygen.

During the Rock Raiders theme, there were yellow-green crystals, called energy crystals. Since then they have appeared in many different themes.

Power Miners introduced a new system of crystal colours, including trans colours yellow, blue, green, orange and red. In the Power Miners theme, they are the energy source for the Rock and Lava Monsters. Once eaten by one, they get a massive energy boost, gaining great strength and speed, and often causing earthquakes. Rock Monsters and Lava Monsters all eat crystals. The crystals Rock Monsters and Lava Monsters eat are the same colour as they are, but by eating a crystal in a different colour may result in a Monster Burp. The exact canon composition of the crystals is unknown.

Some themes include them as a mineral rather than a crystal, such as the Castle theme. There were also Chrome Green specimens in the Space Port theme, passed off as "Neptunium".
