  5. Crystal

Take the square stone from inside the pedestal, then back out of this room.

Return to the altar and drag the tile with the Soluna glyph over the bottom right symbol, then go to the bottom right. Go through the tunnel to get a container of something warm. Use this in the pedestal to the right, then examine it to see another puzzle - you need to create a complete path from the bottom left to the top right, by sliding around some of the tiles. The correct path starts by going right rather than up, and not all paths need to be completed. Once you are done, take another piece of the cipher. Leave here and go through the main gate again.
