There are a ton of collectible items in The Sims 4 and crystals are a really great one. You can use a crystal in the celestial crystal crown from The Sims 4: Get Famous, or you can use them for emotional aura inside your home.
Completing the crystal collection can be a really fun challenge for yourself and can take a lot of time, but this guide will give you all the information you need about the different crystals.
How to Find Crystals
Crystals are found just like a lot of the other collectibles in the game, by digging up rocks around the worlds. You won’t find a crystal each time you dig up one of these rocks, so it may take a decent amount of time to find them.

Completing the Crystal Collection
If your sim manages to complete the crystal collection in the game, they are going to be rewarded with a plaque to commemorate the occasion. This plaque makes for great home decor!
Its description reads: “The Sim Geological Council wanted to let you know that you’ve satisfied their stringent requirements in both hoarding and showing off your pretty crystalline friends. This is your very own Consummate Gem Connoisseur plaque. It’s almost as pretty as your gem collection.“
Sending Crystals to the Geo Council
Each crystal in The Sims 4 is composed of anywhere from 1-3 elements. These elements are another collection entirely that your sim can choose to complete.
To be able to get the elements from inside of a crystal your sim needs to send their crystals to the geo council in the game. When you send in a crystal, you’ll get an element in your mailbox the next day. It will only be one of the elements that make up the crystal, not all of them.
However, it is important to note that sending the crystal to the geo council will destroy the crystal, so do so with caution.
Being able to finish the crystal collection in The Sims 4 will make your sim feel great, and can make for some cute and weird home decor if you so choose. What’s your favourite collection in the game? Let me know your thoughts in the comments!
