Crystal Purification

Some devices in Applied Energistics 2 require pure crystals instead of the raw crystals you find in the endowment, and while not necessary most recipes that take raw crystals will also take pure crystals, the advantage is that you can get two pure crystals for any 1 raw crystals allowing you to get more crystals for your efforts.

Purifying Crystals is a fairly simple process, first you must make a seed, this is done by crafting Sand and any crystal dust; then simply drop/throw the seed in water, this process will be extremely slow ( several hours ) without a Crystal Growth Accelerator but it is possible, by using the Crystal Growth Accelerator you can cut the purification down to minutes, or less if you use more.
