Crystal Shards are a placeable crafting material which may be naturally found in the Underground Hallow on Pearlstone surfaces, requiring a Hammer to harvest. They come in several different shapes and colors before they've been harvested. After being harvested, however, their inventory image is always that of a purple crystal. Placing Crystal Shards will result in randomly-colored versions, in a manner similar to the randomized graphics created when placing Books and Coral. Crystal shards give off a very small amount of light and brightens occasionally, which makes them somewhat easier to find. The light it emits depends on the color of the crystal.How to get Crystal Shards Terraria HERO(02:03)
They do regenerate, so one may mine without fear of depleting their world's supply. It is possible to build a Crystal Shard farm, by making long rows of Pearlstone underground one block wide, three blocks between. Since their spawn rate is low, however, a significant size is needed for it to be productive. With Holy Water this can be achieved anywhere in the underground. With these farms (or just going around in the underground hallow) you can make a lot of money due to its high selling price of 16 silver.
