Purification Powder is used to turn Ebonstone into normal Stone and clear Corruption by turning corrupted grass to normal Grass, and Ebonsand into normal Sand. It is sprinkled in the direction of the mouse cursor.
It is a popular strategy that has been adopted by beginner players to easily reach Shadow Orbs, due to its nature of turning Ebonstone into regular stone, which of course can be broken by the lowest tier of pickaxe. However, gaining purification powder requires the Dryad, meaning you have to kill a boss first.
Purification Powder could be considered one of the most efficient ways to mine corrupted blocks without high-grade equipment.
Vile Powder is often considered the opposite of Purification Powder.
One application of Purification Powder will cleanse an area of around 10-20 Ebonstone blocks. Most Shadow Orbs can be reached with two or three applications.
