Scoria Ore is a Hardmode ore which generates in the Abyss biome. It can be found on the underside of the floating Abyss Gravel or Pyre Mantle islands, dropping harmful lava particles into the water beneath itself. These lava particles have a base damage of 25.

It requires at least a Picksaw to mine, and is used to craft Scoria Bars at an Adamantite Forge or a Titanium Forge. It is also dropped by Chaotic Puffers and Devil Fish after the Golem has been defeated.
