"Instead of honey, Crystal Hives form seeds of Honeycore. During flight, tiny crystals shake loose from their wings and take roo in the snow - it is unknown if intentional or a side effect of some other more complex process."

Is it the first species in the game to have a "capstone" trait value, naturally spawning with 7 Stability.

The Apiarist's Almanac gives the following hint:
A rare hybrid of Frigidus and Regalis that will only appear near Honeycore, during snowstorms..

When asking Dr Beenjamin BhD for a hint he says the following:
I don't have time to be answering such basic questions! Pah, fine. Some species need specific weather conditions, like snow, rain or lightning. For example, Frigidus and Regalis react quite interestingly with sn...oh get out!.

Special Produce

When a Crystal Bee is used in a Basic Apiary and fills Frames, they can produce when extracted.


When Cross-Breeding the Crystal Bee with the following other species there is a chance for the offspring to mutate into a new species!

As with all mutations, the offspring of the hybrid queen needs to also be a hybrid, so this can effect the chances listed below.
