Crystallurgy is the art of forging crystals into items that possess magical qualities, creating devices to accomplish specific magical functions. Crystallurgy also refers to the skills required to wield such items.
Items created through Crystallurgy have a limited lifespan, proportional to the amount of crystal used to make them. Each gram of crystal supplies enough energy for roughly one use of an item’s magical effect. While there are some extremely rare and powerful items made from kilograms of crystal, most contain only a few grams.
Tracers are those who have honed their skill in the craft of creating magical items from crystals. To do this they use the art known as Crystalogy, which creates magical effects that transform matter from one shape or state to another.
