Just something interesting I found when farming crystals for the Gauntlet.

Recap from Nexus Atlas.
Crystals come in these levels:
1. Faded
2. Dim
3. Pale
4. Glowing
5. Bright
6. Radiant

The goal is to make a Radiant crystal of your totem color.

Green, Orange and Gold are used to enhance any totem colored crystals.
Green - 1 point
Orange - 2 points
Gold - 3 points

If you add two faded crystals of different colors, you only get one dim crystal.

I found out that if you add two Faded crystals of the SAME color, you get to keep one Faded.
Example:
Faded Red (1) + Faded Red (1) = Dim Red (2), plus one Faded (1).

This means you can add the Dim crystal with the extra Faded, and get a Pale (3).

Pale crystals can then be added with each other to make a radiant (3+3=6). In other words, you can use four faded crystals of the same color to make a radiant. (4 faded = 4 points, but it adds up to a lv 6, nice eh)

If you have two colors (in this case blue):
As mentioned in NA, the 2nd crystal used dictates the color, so...
Pale Red + Pale Blue = Radiant Blue Crystal
OR
Pale Blue + Pale Red = Radiant Red Crystal

Note that you can also make the pale blue crystal using only TWO faded blue crystals.

Summary:
You can make a radiant using only four faded crystals. You can use four faded crystals of the same color, or four faded crystals of two colors (2 reds, 2 blues... 2 blacks, 2 whites... 2 reds, 2 blacks.. etc)

The following is still being tested ^^ so it might be best to no post them on NA yet.. I don't want to get stoned =P

I found out that there's a fail rate when combining these crystals. So your recipe may be right, but it might still fail.
Example:
Dim blue + orange = Failed. Orange broke.
2nd try
Dim blue + orange = Glowing blue.

Also, as mentioned, whenever a combination fails, the SECOND crystal breaks. So it's a good idea to use the green, orange or gold crystals in the second slot since they're more disposable/worth less.

I had a Bright (level 5) red crystal once. I tried to make it Radiant by adding a Faded blue.
Faded Blue + Bright Red = Failed, bright red is taken. I lost a level 5 crystal =( I don't know if this is caused by the recipe or the fail rate.

If instead I had tried using a green crystal and it failed...
Bright Red + Green = Failed, green is taken. I get to keep my level 5 crystal.

So no matter what you do, it's advisable to not put your high level crystal on the second slot =)
