Not to be confused with Heart or Life Crystal.

Crystal Hearts are objects found on any layer below the surface. When the player breaks a Crystal Heart using a pickaxe, drill, or explosives, it drops a Life Crystal which can be picked up. The Life Crystal can then be used to increase your maximum health by 1 heart, or 20 health. It also heals you by the same amount. Life Crystals cannot be used once the player has 400 health, at which point only Life Fruit can further increase the player's health to a maximum of 500.

While they can be hard to find, single-player mode worlds will actually contain dozens more Crystal Hearts than the player can use.


  • Multiple Crystal Hearts are usually found in The Underworld.
  • Sometimes Crystal Hearts can be found right next to each other.
  • It is possible that very rarely a Crystal Heart could spawn above ground; though this could have been a possible bug.
Bug.png Bug : Very rarely, two Heart Crystals can spawn inside one another, showing a quarter or half of one, and the rest of the other.
Bug.png Bug : Mobile only.png Pc only.png Sometimes on Mobile, Heart Crystals generated in lava will be cut off, with only the top of the crystal visible. This can also rarely happen on PC, but you can still obtain the item.
Bug.png Bug : Pc only.png Digging out silt blocks under a Crystal Heart will crash Terraria.
Bug.png Bug : If a Crystal Heart spawns on Sand and the blocks are dug out from beneath it, the heart will stay floating in midair.
Bug.png Bug : Pc only.pngSometimes a Crystal Heart may spawn on one of the same blocks as a Demon Altar, leaving it so you can see about half of the crystal. If you use a hammer on the block beneath the Heart Crystal, instead of breaking, it will remain there and give you three heart crystals. This can be used an infinite amount of times, giving you maximum health and infinite money (each stack of 99 sells for over 1 platinum coin) in mere seconds. (This hasn't been tested or reported on Mobile or Console, but may exist.)
