On the way to the lake you will come to a House that has two floors. Go to the second floor to find a door with a circular indentation in it across from a typewriter on the second floor. You can find one here titled note Illuminated 4:3.

We recommend solving the crystal marble puzzle in phases. First get your marbles to line up.

  • From Rotating the Crystal (Using the Left Stick)you can focus the particles.
  • From Spin the Ball (with RB/R1)you can make it appear as a two-dimensional image.

Rotate the crystal marble by holding down the left stick for a few seconds until you have a particle concentration that looks roughly like an upside down version of the icon. Rotate the crystal to the left to concentrate these marbles into a tighter formation.

Once the icon is formed, rotate the puzzle 180 degrees in either direction and the image will snap once they overlap. If it doesn’t, you can try moving the stick left and right to slightly adjust your image and solve the problem.
