They can be obtained mainly by destroying Flux Tiles, which only spawn in Missions. You can also get them by trading, recycling a Handheld Pusher or other items made with flux, and sometimes by shooting it out of a critical Ship, or killing a Boss Bot.
A usage example would be placing the Flux Crystals in a Machine Fabricator to craft
a Loader .
