Towering about three yards tall, a crystal golem's form is nothing short of massive.  Deeply set fires glimmer coldly from its eye sockets, throwing a myriad of colors throughout the large crystal spikes jutting sharply away from its thick crystalline skin.  As it moves, the rainbow color flickers through the facets of its body in a dizzying array of color.
