Crystal Growth Accelerator


  • Accelerators can only be powered from the top or the bottom.
  • To accelerate the growth process, crystal seeds must be placed in a water block adjacent to the accelerator. They will grow at their normal pace if they are placed in a water block at any distance greater than 1 block away from any accelerator.
  • Seeds affected by a powered accelerator will shimmer more rapidly.
  • Accelerators can only be powered by AE power, but when connected to a ME system, it will not use up a channel.
