  2. Look for the area blocked off from the rest of the lake by a huge leaf.
  3. Head to the right side of the image for a clearer view of the spot.
  4. Once you reach the spot, wait for your stamina to recover and then jump into the water.

Take a look at the image above and then make your way to that location on the map. Here you will find one of the many entrances to a cave. This one is the closest to a Sturdy Quantzite, alongside other types as well. So we recommend that you enter here. Be sure to come here with a lot of space in your inventory. 

Getting here isn’t easy, but this is one of the very best caves you can explore. It will get you many things, and that includes all kinds of Quartzite and Marble too. You should visit here whenever you can.

Moreover, It is a very complicated location to transverse, but once you get used to it, it all becomes simple. The case is mostly referred to as the Larva or Ladybird Larva cave. 


And with that, our guide comes to an end. We did a lot of research about Quartzite. It is one of the rarest materials to find in the game and is also essential with how much it is required. We made sure that we provided the very best locations for you to acquire all three types of Quartzite.

The game also offers a lot when it comes to content after you’re done fixing the mysterious machine. You can unlock some of the best recipes to make some awesome stuff like the best armor and the best Weapons, or you can also explore and find the Oak lab and the Hedge lab. You can also reach the upper yard
