Volatile crystals which are charged with high amounts of energy.
Physical & Chemical Properties
Pivoki are highly reactive, prone to releasing the stored energy in violent bursts of heat, light and mutagenic radiation when exposed to an oxygen-rich atmosphere.
Geology & Geography
Origin & Source
History & Usage
The first mentions of exploding rocks go back to about 3,900 NZR, even before the age of metalworking. They were one of the reasons why Mustik Kogli was considered a dangerous area even outside the Heat Season.
The controlled release of the crystals' stored energy plays a key role in countless technologies on Ranul.
In their raw form, the crystals are embedded in various types of rock. These rock shells need to be removed in order to expose the crystals to a reaction partner and release the energy stored in them.
Reusability & Recycling
Depleted crystals are shipped back to Hazu Kalpasu during winter, where they are likely to be recharged during the Heat Season.
Pivoki are stored in a vacuum until they are ready to be used.
