What are Crystal Cores in Genshin Impact?

Crystal Core is an Item that can be used to craft Condensed Resin in Genshin Impact, which can be collected by catching Crystalflies. Usually, these insects are hard to find during the day but it is easier to spot them during the nighttime or in dark caves.

The Crystalflies vary in different forms depending on where players are exploring. If they are in Liyue, players will find Geo Crystalflies. While in Mondstadt, they can find the Anemo variant. Dendro Crystalflies are found all over Sumeru. Lastly, they will come across the Cryo Crystalflies in Dragonspine.
