Crimtane Ore is a pre-Hardmode Ore. It is the Crimson counterpart to the Corruption's Demonite Ore, and will not appear naturally in Corruption worlds. It can be found very rarely in small veins Underground in worlds that contain Crimson, however the only usable quantities come from the Brain of Cthulhu Boss, and from the Eye of Cthulhu (only in worlds containing Crimson). Crimtane Ore emits a faint glow when placed, similar to Demonite Ore.

Like Demonite Ore, the pickaxe power required to mine Crimtane changes with location. Below ground level, a Gold Pickaxe or better is needed, while above ground, any pickaxe will do.

Crimtane can be crafted into bars which are then used in the creation of Crimson Armor and its corresponding tools. Unlike Demonite Ore, Crimtane cannot be crafted into bricks.
