Erchius Crystal is an object unobtainable by players through normal means. This item's information is present in the game files, but not intended by developers to be in players' possession.
Erchius Crystal is a quest reward from the mission in the Erchius Mining Facility. They are awarded after completing the mission by activating the Mining Drill. The quest awards the amount of crystals needed to repair the ship's engines.
As a construction block, Erchius Crystals cannot be obtained through normal gameplay. They are only seen as blocks in the Erchius Mining Facility, and while the player is "awarded" them for completing the mission, they are instantly taken away and never in the player's inventory.
