Ebonsand Blocks are the Corrupted form of Sand Blocks. Placed Ebonsand can spawn Dark Mummies and Corruption enemies, while normal sand spawns normal mummies and Desert enemies.
During Hardmode, any corrupted block will turn regular sand blocks that are up to three tiles away into Ebonsand.
Ebonsand can also be used as Ammunition for the Sandgun. Ebonsand fired with the Sandgun will rip through enemies.
- Ebonsand, just like Pearlsand, cannot be used to make glass. Keep this in mind as the Corruption and Hallow slowly eat away at your Ocean and Desert Biomes if you intend to make potions in Hardmode.
- Purification Powder can convert Ebonsand back to Sand, while Vile Powder converts Pearlsand similarly.
- In the PC release, Ebonsand can be created during world generation, allowing the crafting of Unholy Water pre-Hardmode.
