A Crystal Heart is a background object that drops a Life Crystal when broken with a pickaxe, drill, or explosive. Crystal Hearts can be found naturally placed in any area in the Underground layer and below, though they are fairly uncommon. They cannot be found in the The Underworld or the Dungeon. In very rare cases, Crystal Hearts can also be found on the surface.Verify

Life Crystals are used to increase a player's maximum health capacity by 20 health.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • The maximum number of Crystal Hearts that can generate is 100 on a small world, 230 on a medium world, and 403 on a large world.[1] Occasionally, a Crystal Heart will fail to generate causing there to be slightly fewer than the maximum number in the world, but the total will not exceed these numbers.

Tips[edit | edit source]

  • The easiest way to find Crystal Hearts is by using a Spelunker Potion, as the Spelunker buff highlights the crystals.
  • The Underground Jungle is a good place to look for Crystal Hearts, due to the large amounts of open space. The Ice biome may be a less dangerous alternative.
