Iridium Ore is a resource found in Iridium Nodes, Mystic Stones, Magma Geodes, and Omni Geodes. It is also a rare drop from high level Monsters, and can be found in Fishing Treasure Chests and meteorites on the farm. Panning may also occasionally yield Iridium Ore. The Statue of Perfection produces 2-8 Iridium Ore per day.

Five Iridium Ore can be traded at the Desert Trader for one Mega Bomb.



Iridium Ore can be smelted in a Furnace to create an Iridium Bar. The smelting requires 5 iridium ore and 1 Coal and takes 8 in-game hours.
