Argus crystal is a mysterious substance used by the xel'naga for various purposes and by the Dark Templar to build up extra energy.
The xel'naga used an Argus crystal as part of the "prison" for an extremely powerful entity based in the Void. A Moebius Foundation telepath, using a psionic amplifier, used her energies to release the creature, calling it the "lock" for the prison. A Dark Templar named Xy'tal tried to use the crystal to re-seal it.
The xel'naga found or created a powerful relic, the Argus Stone, which they valued over other artifacts. The zerg believe it had been used to create entire races.
