Have you tried using purification powder on the ebonstone of The Corruption?

The Dryad

Thrown Powders are items that can be used to turn Crimson, Corrupt, or Hallowed blocks back into their pure form. When thrown, they release as a cloud spread with a very short range, comparable to that of a Broadsword, and produce a fair amount of light. Thrown Powder comes in three variants:

Purification Powder is able to revert any Corrupted or Crimson Blocks back into their pure form, such as reverting Ebonstone into Stone or Crimsand into Sand.

Vile Powder is able to revert any Hallowed block back into its pure form, such as reverting Pearlstone into Stone. If thrown at critters such as the Bunny, Penguin, or Goldfish, they will turn into their Corrupted variants: Corrupt Bunny, Corrupt Penguin, and Corrupt Goldfish respectively. It can be crafted from Vile Mushrooms or can be purchased from the Dryad for 1 Silver Coin each, during a Blood Moon in a Corrupt world.

Vicious Powder Desktop VersionConsole version is functionally identical to its counterpart, the Vile Powder, to where it can revert any Hallowed block back into its pure form. If thrown at critters such as the Bunny, Penguin, or Goldfish, they will turn into their Crimson variants: Crimtane Bunny, Vicious Penguin, and Crimtane Goldfish respectively. It can be crafted from Vicious Mushrooms or can be purchased from the Dryad for 1 Silver Coin each, during a Blood Moon in a Crimson world.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Purification Powder is able to shatter Shadow Orbs and Crimson Hearts.
  • Purification Powder will not clear through Corrupt or Crimson thorns, leaving the player to manually break them before they spread their respective biome.
  • Purification Powder is one of the only methods of tunneling through Ebonstone or Crimstone to reach Shadow Orbs/Crimson Hearts in pre-Hardmode without the need to defeat the Eater of Worlds or the Brain of Cthulhu, the other methods being to use explosives or a Reaver Shark.
