Platinum Ore is an early-game ore that spawns in the Underground and Cavern layers, as well as on Floating Islands. Its primary use is in crafting Platinum Bars, which are used to make the fourth tier of equipment and several other items. Platinum Ore is the counterpart to Gold Ore, which can generate in its place in some worlds. Desktop, Console, and Mobile Versions Platinum Ore has a small chance to appear as a bonus drop from slimes.

In order to duplicate Platinum Ore via the duplication menu, 100 Platinum Ore must be researched.

Tips[edit | edit source]

  • Platinum Ore can be confused with Silver Ore under certain lighting.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • In real life, platinum has many uses, but is typically known for being even rarer than gold. This was embedded in the fantasy tabletop role-playing game Dungeons & Dragons (featuring copper, silver, gold, and platinum coins), and has since become a gaming trope in its own right, which is continued by Terraria's coin system.
