"The ice caves are crackling with frigid energy."

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[]


  • 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.


  • Despite its name and appearance, it is unrelated to Frigid Bars, which are direct drops from Cryogen.
