Now God built a place of gathering, to fashion by the shores of the Crystal Sea seven
great pillars which were themselves cut whole and made of deep blue sapphire, which
very pillars God did mount upon a pavement of white marble, and over the seven great
pillars did God fashion lintels of the purest marble also.
Summary: A body of water located on the first world of the First Heaven. It was
along the shores of the Crystal Sea that The One and Areta built a great amphitheater
and a temple which became known as the first House of Mithron (4:5:28; 4:9:15-19).
Then did God call forth the very elements, and there beside the great amphitheater,
near the shores of the Crystal Sea, was there constructed a great temple, being itself
most beautifully and exquisitely made....
Thus did God build the temple of the First Heaven, and when they were complete, both
The One and Areta together, they saw that it was good, and they called it the House
of Mithron; and therein did they appoint the first four offices.
