First Reference: 4th Endowment 5:28
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.
See: First Heaven
Summary: The Crystal Sea is 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.
