Little is known about the Crystalwings. They are so uncommon that among the local villagers that they are regarded as myth. What is known is this: they fly very, very high and can occasionally be seen swarming over the tops of mountains. Their flight is silent and graceful, and so fast that they are seldom seen. According to ancient legend, they originate from the Caves of Nareau, where few venture to go. Once a year these creatures molt, and the fallen gems are collected and made into exquisite jewelry.
Golden and metallic, this egg is extremely heavy.
How odd. This small creature seems to be encrusted in tiny purple gems, making it extremely heavy and beautiful. It has small wings, which you suspect will one day give this creature flight, and a long tail. It makes high pitched squeaking sounds and flaps its wings in futile attempts to fly. Attracted to anything shiny, this hatchling loves finding bright rocks to play with. It is already incredibly loyal to you, acting aggressively towards anything that gets too close.
This crystalwing has grown up to become a beautiful and majestic creature. Having fully grown its wings, it's able to fly to extraordinary heights. Large purple gems are encrusted all over the crystalwing, making it a joy to behold. It glistens in daylight, the sun turning the jewels into a kaleidoscope of colors. It has a very long, heavy tail, which serves as a swift and deadly weapon if any magi or creature foolishly attempts to threaten this crystalwing. It possesses powerful magical abilities over air and stone.
