Basically humans were given magic in the form of these powerful crystals. Humans abused magic so Gods took the magic away and put it on an island with a lot of heavy magical protection. The humans, now separated into kingdoms, lose their shit and go crazy looking for the crystals. But, surprise, it was found by a bunch of pirates. Pirates make a home on crystal island and now are onto a second generation. Yes, they are still pirates, and yes a group of them goes out and pillages the other kingdoms. The rest stay on the island to protect.

~CRYSTAL COLORS AND MAGIC~
HOW THEY WORK
Sooo basically they're elemental crystals. Characters will keep them on their person at all times. The crystal allows each person to control said element (and corresponding abilities (for example fire also includes heat)) to a limited amount. The quality of the crystal (AKA clarity) determines how powerful the crystal is. So a cloudy crystal would allow for minimal control while a clear crystal would give the user complete control. Users can also combine two crystals to create certain effects. For example, using fire and water crystal together could make steam.
In order to use the crystal, the user must either infuse it with an item or turn it into powder. The more you use one crystal the worse quality it would have. So you would need to replace it constantly in order to keep up good quality, hence the importance of keeping the island protect since it essentially 'grows' crystals.
Green=Plants? Life? That type of stuff
Clear=Air (Atmospheric type stuff)
