The crystal pick is a much better pickaxe that appears only in Sheol. There is one guaranteed as a reward near the end of the branch, but it might be a good candidate for a non-magical wish. It is twice as fast at digging through walls, and is the only thing that can dig through crystal ice walls other than fire. In addition, the crystal pick is lighter than a regular pick-axe, and does impressive damage for a one-handed weapon.

A crystal pick is made of metal, not glass. Like silver polish or steak sauce, its name indicates its intended use rather than its composition. Despite this, crystal picks do not rust or corrode.
