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. It is purchased from the Dryad for 75*75 Copper Coin.png each, while a Blood Moon is not active. Unlike Holy Water and Blue Solution, Purification Powder cannot spread the Hallow.

Vile Powder is able to revert any Hallowed block back into its pure form, such as reverting Pearlstone into Stone. If thrown at a Bunny, Penguin, or Goldfish, it will turn into its 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 100*1 Silver Coin.png each, during a Blood Moon in a Corrupt world. Unlike Unholy Water and Purple Solution, Vile Powder cannot spread the Corruption.

Vicious PowderDesktop VersionConsole VersionMobile Version is functionally identical to its counterpart, Vile Powder, to where it can revert any Hallowed block back into its pure form. If thrown at a Bunny, Penguin, or Goldfish, it will turn into its 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 100*1 Silver Coin.png each, during a Blood Moon in a Crimson world. Unlike Blood Water and Red Solution, Vicious Powder cannot spread the Crimson.
