Usage

Crystal Separator is used to extract Hexorium crystals out of Hexorium Ore, Hexorium Nether Ore, Hexorium Monoliths and Hexorium Nether Monoliths with great efficiency, providing a better output than when mining with even strongest Fortune enchant. In addition, the machine can be used to extract Diamonds, Emeralds and Nether Quartz out of their respective ore and many different gems from other mods. To use the machine, it has to be connected with the HEX Energy Network via a Hexorium Cable or Pylon Base attached to its back. When there is energy available on the network, small RGB lights will light up to signify that the machine is usable. The machine requires 32 HEX/t input to work, but can work on lower energy too, although it will work slower. When energy is insufficient, the input box will show text in red, when it is sufficient it will show in green. If the machine suddenly loses power, the processing progress will reset. When the machine is processing items, it will change its texture and start emitting light. Items to process are inserted from top and processing results are pulled from front. The machine can be rotated using the Hexorium Manipulator.

Lore

Crystal Separator is a Hexorium machine designed by CelesTek Technologies. The purpose of the separator is to effectively increase crystal mining efficiency by doubling the amount of crystals gained when mining, compared to an unenchanted pick. To do this, the separator uses two Crystal Extraction Units. Each pulls a total of 16 HEX/t, so the machine pulls a total of 32 HEX/t. Once ore is inserted into the machine, the extraction units come to life. First they will analyze the ore using Mineral Analyzers and assess if there are any crystals to be extracted. If there are, they will use their Ore Actuators to remove rock around the crystals with surgical accuracy, leaving only previous gems behind.

NOTE: Never put your hand inside the device while holding an already extracted crystal in the same hand.
