An incredibly heavy but extremely effective suit of crystalline armour.

Crystal plate armour is one of the heaviest body armours available (tied with gold dragon scales), and requires high strength to wear effectively. As a standard body armour, Spriggans, Ogres, Trolls, Draconians, Octopodes and Felids are unable to wear it. In exchange for these steep requirements, it offers phenomenal AC, allowing characters to absorb physical abuse with ease. Just don't expect to dodge many attacks or cast easily while wearing it.

Crystal plate armour is extremely rare, but it is generally considered to be very strong if your character has the strength to use it and doesn't mind or can counteract the high penalties.
