An adult vernal crystalwing has wings and tail that are fully bloomed, hatchling buds unfurling into beautiful riotously colored petals. Adults are every bit as playful as they were as hatchlings and require considerably less sunlight, though they still enjoy basking. They spend much of their time flying about in flower gardens, chasing each other around and, at the Keep gardens in particular, harassing the rose imps. The presence of vernal crystalwings tends to make gardens grow faster and more vibrant, and so they are generally welcomed by gardeners, though heavily discouraged from landing on the flowers themselves, as their weight tends to crush the poor plants.

Vernal crystalwings are playful, curious creatures. They are not small, about the length of an average magi???s armspan from head to tailtip, and very heavy, as the flowers and petals all over their body are made out of gorgeous gems. Even so, they are incredibly fast and agile, loving nothing more than racing each other and any other flying creatures nearby they can goad into joining their games. Somewhat unusually for their species, vernal crystalwings do not do well in caves, as they require sunlight to grow. As a result, they are less adept at finding crystals to snack on, and as such are easily befriended by anyone who offers them gems to eat. They molt their petals in the winter, and those gems are gathered for crafting into exquisite jewelry and artwork. Items created from their gems collect and store sunlight, exuding it in a gentle warmth and energizing anyone nearby.
