Default How Many Saves Crystals do you Have to Spare?

I'm playing TR3 on an emulator, so the PS1 version, for the first time in a few years as I've primarily stuck to the PC version for its high resolution, widescreen, instant saving and loading times and its hotkeys. I'm not yet at the end and will update when I am, but I'm curious to see how many save crystals you ever have to spare at the end of Meteorite Cavern? And since TR3 on PS1 is super dark, how many flares do you have to spare?

Been a long while but I recall having to beat Meteorite Cavern with no crystals at all and I think I was low on flares when I beat the PS1 version on Vita, Ran out of Crystals mid-way through Tinnos.

Felt like there were less than 21 save crystals for me.

How many are there exactly? I never actually counted.

When I originally played TR3 on PS1, I had 86 spare during endgame. Mainly because I always have a habit of forgetting to save unless it comes the the start of a large open area, such as the bridge at Tinnos. It's also fun to just leave Meteorite Cavern without bothering with Willard and leaving the artifacts behind too.

70 something when I played as a kid on PSX was the best I could do, but I also tried to spare all the other pickups like ammos, medipacks and flares
