Ardeon crystals are an extremely valuable commodity.

A cache was reportedly stored in the Jacobs Installation before its destruction, its worth being enough to rival that of the richest nobles of Korhal IV. It was such reports that led Sandin Forst, Rieff and Garth to attempt to retrieve them from the ruins of the installation.

However, two of the adventurers were killed and the crystals turned out to be infested with zerg spores, resulting in the infestation of Sandin Forst.
