There is another type of crystal you will need in order to progress through AE2. These Fluix Crystal can not be found in the world and will need to be crafted. Throwing one Nether Quartz, 1 Charged Certus Quartz and one Redstone into water will cause them to react and for Fluix Crystals to appear. This process can be done by throwing stacks of each ingredient into water rather than one at a time. This process can also be automated within AE2.
