Growing Crystals

The Certus Quartz Dust you find can be grown into a Certus Quartz Crystal.
First you must make a seed by combining the crystal dust with Sand. Then simply drop/throw the seed in water. The seed will not despawn and turn into a crystal over time.
This process is very slow without the help of the Crystal Growth Accelerator.
