The Crystal Desert, also known as the Crystal Sea,[1] was a harsh and brutal area of Thra that the Gelfling Dousan Clan called home. Its animal life included peeper beetles[2] and Moogs,[3] while its plant life included urdrupes.[4] The sands of the Crystal Desert never stopped shifting, and walking over it was likened to traversing water.[5]

Behind the Scenes

In The Dark Crystal Author Quest press release[6] and J.M. Lee's young adult novel series, the desert is referred to as the "Crystal Sea".
