The Crystal Veins is an area in Act 4. It has a waypoint and is connected to The Mines Level 2, Daresso's Dream, Kaom's Dream, and The Belly of the Beast Level 1.

As in the two Mines levels, your character once again comments on a mine-shaking rumble when you first enter. The lone unique monster, The Burning Man, explodes on death dealing a significant amount of damage that may be enough to one-shot the player, especially if using mainly evasion-based gear.
