Sabaarian Crystals

A coveted resource for magical crafters and arcane researchers, Sabaarian crystals seem to be inexplicably tied to the weave. They seem to have some kind of influence on magic, acting as a form of catalyst and enhancer. However, little is known about the workings of the crystals, making them a hard component to use.

Discovery

The Sabaarian crystals were first discovered in 283 I.A by a group of explorers who had adventured down the large crevasses near the town of Sabaar. They emerged with a few samples, and managed to sell them to an old inventor by the name of Karin Khan.

Karin quickly discovered the arcane nature of the crystals, and spread the news to their fellow researchers. Interest grew for the resource, and people started to go explore the mines in hopes of making some money of their own.

The Miner's Association

In 285 I.A, two years after the initial discovery of the crystals, the various miners of Sabaar united their efforts to create an autonomous guild of miners. They banded together to set fair rates, and establish safer working conditions within the mines themselves.

Magical Properties

The crystals have been used by Karin Khan to build some more potent Arcane Foci, capable of enhancing the spellcaster's magic for a few moments. They are still working on some more inventions, although the crystal's energy is quite hard to harness.

Thank you :D!   I'll probably have to expand on their mechanics, because my players seem reaaaally interested in finding some use for them, and I have no idea how to make these work ;-;
