The white gems in Crash Bandicoot in N.Sane Trilogy are awarded for breaking all the crates in each level, so they are the collectible items only completionists get their hands on. There’s nothing complicated about the process, but it’s worth bearing in mind that to find every crate you’ll need to have unlocked all paths - to do this you’ll need to find all the colored gems and keys. Also, be careful not to destroy crates you need to bounce off in order to reach higher crates. Levels can be replayed, but it’s safest to enter areas cautiously rather than spinning out of control.
