The Inhumans mentioned growing crystals in Son of M, if I’m not mistaken. However, it seemed to be a multi-generational process (the comment was that the few crystals Quicksilver took would take a long time to replace). Certainly, neither Utolan nor Orolan were able to grow their crystals in any significant amount so I don’t think taking some of the ones from Utolan solves the problem.
I have to say that UI 16 may be one of the more enjoyable stories. It wasn’t flawless. The ending, to me, is a bit gimmicky. That being said, it’s a great story to point to the Inhumans under Charles Soule and what he’s done. You could remove Black Bolt from the issue entirely and still get the same great story without any long-established Inhuman character. Instead, the world building he has done, the atmosphere of the Quiet Room, characters like Treste and Irelle being interesting (on top of the endlessly fascinating Reader), are all incredible accomplishments. I hope Soule doesn’t leave after IvX. I think there’s more for him to write and he’s not even at his peak yet (which is where I’m hoping the leftover non-royals will be), but I’m happy with what he’s done so far.
