Silicon (Energy Crystal) is a chemical element with symbol Si and atomic number 14. It is a tetravalent metalloid, more reactive than germanium, the metalloid directly below it in the table. Controversy about silicon's character dates to its discovery. It was first prepared and characterized in pure form in 1823. In 1808, it was given the name silicium (from Latin: silex, hard stone or flint), with an -ium word-ending to suggest a metal, a name which the element retains in several languages.

Silicon is the eighth most common element in the universe by mass, but very rarely occurs as the pure free element in the Venturian crust. It is most widely distributed in dusts, sands, planetoids, and planets as various forms of silicon dioxide (silica) or silicates. Over 90% of the Earth's crust is composed of silicate minerals, making silicon the second most abundant element in Venture's crust (about 28% by mass) after oxygen.

Silicon is an essential element in biology, although only tiny traces are required by animals. However, various sea sponges and microorganisms, such as diatoms and radiolaria, secrete skeletal structures made of silica. Silica is deposited in many plant tissues, such as in the bark and wood of Chrysobalanaceae and the silica cells and silicified trichomes of Cannabis sativa, horsetails and many grasses.

In Venture

In Venture, Silicon appears as an energy crystal and crafting ingredient.

Use

Silicon is an upgraded version of Scarlet Rock, and can be used in more complicated eletric things.

Crafting

Silicon can make a Silicon Wafer/Waffle using 1 silicon and 8 metallic ingots.
