Scarlet Quartz is an item which you have to find to be able to investigate the strange ice. After you find it, you have to destroy it. If you break it and then you pick the item that they drop, there will be red energy which swirls around you. But, how long is the respawn time of Scarlet Quartz?
The Respawn Time of Scarlet Quartz
You may wonder how long the Scarlet Quartz respawn. Actually, when we were trying to find information about it, it seems that this information is not provided. But, in the Mihoyo Forum, another user says that Scarlet Quartz will only respawn if you do not manage to use them in time to do damage to the crystal.
On that forum, there is a thread about Scarlet Quartz. In the thread, the question is whether Scarlet Quartz respawn or not after it is consumed. Then, the user also asks that after he picks up a quartz, he hits the barrier and then he loses the quartz, but they do not respawn.
He also says that there is not always enough Scarlet Quartz in the area to be able to destroy one big ice thing and there is a big ice in a cave which is surrounded by a barrier. If you access the forum and then find this thread, you will find that there are a lot of people who also experience this thing.
Another user tries to answer this question that if it is the large crystals that you are trying to destroy, there will be 4 scarlet quartz around the area. And some of them are hidden. If they are used, they will not respawn. So, you have to be able to find all 4 Scarlet Quartz to be able to destroy the crystal. If you do not manage to use them in time to do damage to the crystal, they will respawn.
There is also another user who gives a suggestion for you who is stuck since the Scarlet Quartz does not respawn. He suggests to get the 2 seelies to their places in front of the gate. And then, behind the gate, there is a Scarlet Quartz that does not respawn. You are able to take it to the frozen thing that you have to melt.
