I haven't "used" it yet other than in a non-saved game, where it didn't appear to do anything. I could use the extra inventory slot; but I'm assuming there is an ultimate purpose to the item. Without telling me what the item actually does, can someone confirm that it

A) Has a purpose
and
B) Is something I might actually care about (either story-wise or stat/item-wise)

I forget it's major use, I never really explored into it, but it comes back to you if you use it or whatever.

Feel free to use it. It's a homing crystal... if you need it in the long term, I'm sure it will find it's way back to you.

I never got it though. Where did that crystal come from? And what is it for? Is it the crystal that the fairies gave you in CC1?

Yes, it's the one Monkeynuts gave you in Cloud Castle.

There are actually a number of uses for the crystal (throwing it at people is the main one) and one or two of these uses actually stop you from leaving yourself in a situation where it's impossible to get past a certain section because the choices you made would make said section impossible if you didn't have the crystal, IIRC. Which I do.

But like most things in the CC series, it was mostly there for flavour.
