Cryonic Ore is a Hardmode ore which generates in the Ice biome upon Cryogen's defeat. It is used to craft Cryonic Bars at an Adamantite Forge or Titanium Forge. It requires at least an Adamantite Pickaxe or Titanium Pickaxe to mine. It is also dropped by Cryo Slimes. This ore glows slightly which makes it easy to spot through walls.


Used in


  • 16-28 Cryonic Ores can be obtained from Frozen and Boreal Crates at a 20% drop chance after Cryogen and two mechanical bosses have been defeated.
  • Cryonic Ore cannot be destroyed by explosives, even after Cryogen has been defeated.
  • Unlike most other ores, it is visible without the use of a Spelunker Potion, as it naturally glows a dark blue color.
    • Though, it is the dimmest glowing ore in the mod, and the glow can be overpowered by other nearby glowing ores.
