Question Surrealistic game

I vaguely remember playing an Amiga game which was a cross between adventure, puzzle and platform action. The game had many beautyful drawn HAM-pictures. One picture I remember has a huge skeleton of some distinct dinosaur on it. The game has the word Crystal/ Kristal in its title and is released before 1991.
Does this this description does ring a bell?

Happy 2 minutes and 3 seconds...

Cody, I am flabbergasted. Now that was a quick (and correct) response!
The pictures sure bring back some memories but I cannot remember anything anymore from this game. Do you know what this game was about?

"As time passed, the land shifted, and the seas changed; our ancestors found his remains lying in a valley, uncovered by the River Odruilen. We fashioned a city out of his very bones, and we named the city Orodrid."

Such as the isometric platform bit seen in the double-barrel screenshot above.

Smile Thanks for the walkthrough

Many thanks for the screenshots of this game, Cody. It sure brought back some memories. Now if I could get my hands on it (subtle hint )
Somehow I regard Knights of the Crystallion as a far ancestor of surrealistic puzzle games like Myst. I have played both games for a few minutes and never looked back to it since.

Not surprising given that Knights of the Crystallion was coded by Bill Williams, who was responsible for Mindwalker.
