"Ancient draconic power manifests in the caverns, lacing itself through the rock."

Auric Ore is a post-Moon Lord ore that generates in the cavern layer after Yharon, Dragon of Rebirth has been defeated. Its main use is to craft Auric Bars, which are used in creating some of the most powerful gear in the Calamity Mod. It requires at least a Blossom Pickaxe to mine.

If the player touches the ore while not wearing a full set of Auric Tesla armor, they will suffer Auric Rejection, causing the ore to flash bright blue, deal 300 damage to the player and knock them backwards at a high velocity. Auric Ore can also damage and knockback NPCs and Super Dummies. If the target makes contact with the ore, they are inflicted with the Electrified debuff.


Used in


  • This ore does not have a Slime counterpart.
    • However, 30-40 can be obtained from Titanium Crates at a 15% chance after Yharon has been defeated.
  • Auric Ore cannot be destroyed by explosives regardless of whether or not Yharon has been defeated.
  • Like Cryonic Ore, it can be seen without the use of light sources (e.g., torches, light pets, etc.)
  • Unlike most other ores, Auric Ore spawns in enormous clusters, with the largest veins easily containing 150 blocks or more. To compensate, Auric Bars require significantly more Auric Ore to craft compared to other bars.
  • Auric Ore can launch Golf Balls that make contact with it.


  • If the player is killed by Auric Ore contact damage, the death message "<PlayerName> was not worthy." will display.
  • The item sprite and chunks of the placed ore are based on the mod's logo.
