Part 52 is a part originating in Aquazone in 1995. It is a Crystal. Part 52 has since been featured in many themes, including Rock Raiders, Power Miners and others. It was included in the Space Port theme in a Chrome green color, but there has never been another part in that color since.

Crystals can represent many different things, from gold nuggets to Energy Crystals. They often serve crucial roles, such as how they were the counterpoint of Aquazone, Rock Raiders, and Power Miners sets. They can also be simply decoration; an example is 10196 Grand Carousel.

Crystals originated in Aquazone, being a chrome color. They were fought over by the Aquanauts and Aquasharks, then mined by the Aquaraiders, and fought over by the Hydronauts and Stingrays. Here they were needed to supply power and oxygen.

During the Rock Raiders theme, there were yellow-green crystals, called Energy Crystals. Since then, they have appeared in many different themes. Unfortunately, they were also a source of food for Rock Monsters, Ice Monsters, and Lava Monsters. Slimy Slugs also feed upon them, except instead they suck the energy out of them.

Power Miners introduced a new system of crystal colors, including yellow, blue, green, orange, and red. In the Power Miners theme, they are the energy source for the Rock and Lava monsters. Once eaten by one, it affects them almost like a sugar rush which causes them to act wild. Rock Monsters and lava monsters all eat crystals. The crystals Rock Monsters and Lava Monsters eat are the same color as they are, but by eating a crystal in a different color may result in a Monster Burp. Exactly what these crystals are in Power Miners is unknown.

Some themes include them as a mineral rather than a crystal, such as the castle theme. There were also chrome green ones in the Space Port theme, passed off as "Neptunium".
