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.
- Cryonic Ore can be destroyed by explosives after Cryogen has been defeated.
- Due to it normally only generating upon Cryogen's defeat, Cryonic Ore is effectively always able to be destroyed by explosives.
- Unlike most other ores, it is visible without the use of a Spelunker Potion, as it naturally glows a dark blue color.
- Despite its name and appearance, it is unrelated to Frigid Bars, which are direct drops from Cryogen.
