I remember it had a child or children.

Probably about a family in a cave with magical stones. Believe they were stones not crystals but they were colored. The show was less animated and more realistic looking.

    Hi, welcome to SF&F. When would this have been? You say "less animated," but you still mean it was animated, correct?

    Note that you can always edit the question to include additional details; it's better than putting them in comments, that are less visible and searchable.

Land of the Lost (1974) fits in that it is now old, involved "caves" (the pylons) with gemstones which could be used to fight off enemies (the Sleestaks, dinosaurs) and it was partially animated in that there was much use of stop-motion filming.

    The OP mentioned children- and Land of the Lost featured two human children (Will and Holly) and a pre-human child, Chaka
