Material cache (quintessence) is an Archaeology material cache that can be found in the Stormguard Citadel at either the research & development north-east excavation site (requires Wingsuit to access) or at the Howl's Floating Workshop excavation site (requires 95 Archaeology and partial completion of Howl's Floating Workshop to access). It can also be found at the Empyrean Citadel excavation site with the use of the Invitation box.
