And what is it used for?

I found the object at the bottom of a waterfall in Makeb, and cannot use it. When I did a search on it nothing came up in google.

Is it a crafting resource?

It is located at -3091,-243

It definitely wasn't a primordial artifact fragment?

This is where archaeology gets the new artifact fragments.

might have something to do with processing crystals for use in Artifice and Synthweaving, you take these raw materials there and the device purifies them into a high end crafting material.

Not sure about Primordial DEVICE, but a Primordial Artifact is a resource gathered by Archeology and used by Artifice/Synthweaving.

It is quite possible that this is a quest related item that can only be interacted with by people on certain quests.

That being said, there are a number of items in the world that can be interacted with which seem to have no purpose. There is a lava thing in the seeker droid area of Hoth down below the Snowblind area that doesn't seem to have a purpose but which is able to be moused over. I have no clue what it is for.

Regardless, have fun...and good luck with the discoveries.

I'll need to check this thing out when I get home.
And the new planet CZ-198 in 2.3 has new grade 9 color crystal materials that can be collected with archaeology... Perhaps they're related?

I've seen this twice. Once in the Volcanic mesa, and once in the GSI daily area on Frinn Mesa. Just looked with my artifice alt, but now do not see it. No info on this anywhere.

"Primordial Device" is the node that yields "Primordial Artifact Fragment". Simple.
