Orichalcum Ore

Orichalcum Ore is a magenta-colored Hardmode Ore which can replace Mythril in a given world. It requires a pickaxe power of 110 to mine (Cobalt/Palladium Pickaxe or better, or any drill). Like most Hardmode Ores, Orichalcum is generated upon destruction of a Demon/Crimson Altar with a Pwnhammer or any better hammer.

  • In real life, orichalcum is a legendary metal described by Plato in his work Critias to have been mined in the lost city of Atlantis. It is suspected to have been a sort of alloy involving copper.
  • While the in-game color is magenta, orichalcum is speculated to be a more reddish hue.
    • It likely was made this color to avoid confusion with Palladium Ore.


  • Selling the ore rather than the bar yields   more per 4 orichalcum ore.
