Genshin Impact Electro Crystal is a rare item required for certain alchemy recipes that boost your Electro abilities, and you'll also use Electro Crystal to craft a very useful gadget.
So it's handy to keep around, in other words.
Finding and obtaining Electro Crystal in Genshin Impact isn't quite so easy, though, and you won't get all that many when you do find them.
Your best bet is to search around cliffs throughout Mondstadt, though there's a substantial cluster of them in the area around Stormterror's lair.
The best place to get Genshin Impact Electro Crystal is there, but you can also buy some from a vendor in Liyue Harbor.
Still, like many resource in Genshin Impact, it wouldn't hurt to add a pin in your map for Electro Crystal locations near your usual haunts.
Since Electro Crystal is a rare ore, it has a longer respawn rate to match.
