Help? :)

Yes, I'm alive. :)
No, this is not a come-back. At least I think it's not. No, I haven't forgotten either of you, and I often remember you. Know that you are all in my mind, although I'm not here any more.

I need a little help, and I hope that some of you will have the answer I need. :)
I read Book of Lost Tales some 15 years ago, and of course that I don't remember details any more. I need a help with a quote - and I don't have the books - if I had them, I'd look by myself, I wouldn't bother you.
Somewhere in the Book of Lost Tales there is a sentence (or several) describing how Varda made stars. I think that some crystals were mentioned, and some light put into them (obviously :D ). If some of you have the books, and if you could look for the quote, I'd be very grateful. :) I think that this story is in Volume 1, but I'm not sure.
Searching in digital version is much easier, of course. Key words would be star(s), crystal, Varda. Or did she have some different name it that earliest version? Not sure. :/
Greetings and hugs to everyone!!!

Edit: FOUND!!!!!  Thanks to Linaewen. :)

Hey, thanks for the link, but it looks like it's about Tolkien and his writing - it's not the Book of Lost Tales.
Thanks anyway! :)

This link looks like it might be Volume 1 of Book of Lost Tales (see page 5 of the PDF):

http://library.globalchalet.net/Authors/Tolkien,%20J%20R%20R/J%20R%20R%20Tolkien%20Book%20Collection/The%20History%20of%20Middle%20Earth%20Vol_1-12/History%20of%20Middle-Earth%20-%2001.pdf

If this does not help you find what you are looking for, let me know and I can try looking in the book itself -- I believe I own the Book of Lost Tales, but it is not with me where I am living now. It is at my son's house -- but I am going there this weekend, so I can try to find this passage for you in the book (if I am remembering correctly that I own it!).

Yes, that's it, that's what I was looking for! :) Thanks a lot! :) Key-word "crystal" helped me found the paragraph I needed. :)
