Crystal Snare, The
this crystalline asteroid was located in the asteroid belt of the Cularin System. It was originally discovered by Reidi Artom, who also discovered an unusual energy source in the vicinity of the crystal asteroid. The asteroid itself measured four kilometers across, with several spires and nodes protruding from it. No explanation for its formation or existence has been proposed, mainly because scientific exploration of the asteroid always revealed strange and unusual results. What was known about the asteroid was that its structure seemed to amplify any transmission sent toward it, including naturally occurring sunlight and solar energy. This was the cause of the unusual energy source discovered by Reidi Artom, but all attempts to recreate the effect have since failed.
