Duration: Instantaneous                             Minimum Cost: 100 mana
Cooldown: 35-40 hours depending on skill

Syntax: cast 'crystallize aether'

With this spell, an adept of spirit can draw raw quintessence from the
Weave, binding it into a shining crystal. The crystal may be destroyed or
sacrificed by anyone to release its magic, which will restore mana.
Releasing the essence of multiple crystals in rapid succession will continue
to restore mana, but with a diminishing effect. In addition, quintessence
is required to power certain spells of the spirit sphere; for these, the
source of quintessence must simply be available in the caster's inventory.
Quintessence can only be crystallized where the Weave is strongest, at a ley
line or fount.
