Orichalcum Spiked Gemstones are craftable Hardmode daggers crafted from Orichalcum Bars. They fire a pink colored knife, which travel a short distance before being affected by gravity. However, once it reaches the ground, it will roll further until it hits a wall or stops. The knives pierce up to 5 times before dissipating on the sixth hit.

Performing a stealth strike with an Orichalcum Spiked Gemstone will cause the projectile to pierce 3 times, last longer and spawn fast moving petals to fly from the side of the screen on each hit.

The Orichalcum Spiked Gemstone cannot be reforged, and therefore cannot have modifiers.
