This report reviews the design characteristics of crystal gamma ray detectors for high energy physics. The unique physics capability of these detectors is the result of their excellent energy resolution, uniform hermetic coverage and fine granularity. To maintain crystal's resolution in situ radiation hardness is a principle requirement. The performance of various heavy crystal scintillators is discussed. A technical approach to solve radiation damage problem by optical bleaching in situ is elaborated.
