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, unless on Old-gen console version Old-gen console. 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.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Crystal Hearts are one of the few tiles which still obviously borrow from the Stone Block texture, even in the final game version. Other blocks which did this, such as Ebonstone/Pearlstone prior to 1.2 or all original ores prior to, Console, and Mobile versions, eventually had their textures revamped.
