Crimstone Block is the stone found in the Crimson and requires a Deathbringer Pickaxe or explosives to mine. They are spread over the biome, and in hardmode, can affect nearby stone and grass, causing it to become corrupted with the crimson. You can also use these blocks to spread or make an artificial Crimson. Though houses can be built using crimstone, too much of it in an area can invalidate houses in the vicinity (see Home:Location). Unlike its counterpart Ebonstone which is found in the Corruption, it can't be used to make bricks; instead it can be crafted into Flesh Blocks at a Meat Grinder. The necessity of a Meat Grinder is more than offset by Flesh Blocks' ability to be made into furniture, unlike Ebonstone Brick. Individual blocks of crimstone can also be occasionally found in the Underground.
