Treasure Hunting Question

I took treasure hunting because my other skills are artifice and archaeology. My question to other treasure hunters out there (anyone who did this in beta too) is does it get better credit wise. I understand the main purpose behind it is that it gives you high quality mats for the high quality recipes in artifice but credits are still a huge part of the game. I am not expecting much from it now since I am only 50 something but I am wondering if there is a way to make money from this mission skill or from my crew skill choices at all. Now these high end gems it gives me, do you get the recipes for this stuff from the trainer, treasure hunting, or do you have to get it another way. Thanks for your help.

Generally, you get the higher end patterns from reverse engineering like artifice items. Gems, mods, saber stuff. It's rng, but sometimes worth it.

Seems the wind crystals sell on the GTN for about 1-2k credits, so you can defiantly make some money.

Edit: I've also done some of the 'lockbox' missions, and I've gotten 500-2500 (green quality or better) creds plus some items.
