Demonite Ore is an ore which can be found in trace amounts underground, especially in the Corruption. It can be mined with a Gold Pickaxe (or better) and explosives; however, if it is found above ground level, it can be mined with any pickaxe.
The alternative to Demonite Ore is Crimtane Ore.
- Demonite Ore does not spread the corruption.
- Large quantities of this ore are dropped by the Eater of Worlds and Eye of Cthulhu, though the latter will only drop it in worlds where the Corruption exists naturally.
- When placed, Demonite Ore emits the same particle effects as Ebonstone Blocks.
- Demonite Ore emits small amounts of purple light.
Note: Image brightness was increased to better show Demonite Ore in the darkness.
