This article is about the Iridium Ore item added by IndustrialCraft2 that is used in crafting Iridium Plates. You may be looking for the Iridium Ore Block added by GregTech that can be mined or processed in a Macerator to create Iridium Ore.


Iridium is an extremely valuable resource added by IndustrialCraft2. It is found in Sheldonite Ore and Iridium Ore blocks. In the Direwolf20 Pack, it can only be obtained through a Mass Fabricator. In GregTech, Iridium Nuggets provide an alternative source of Iridium, which cannot be crafted into the Ore, but serve a similar purpose otherwise.

Recipe[edit]

Iridium Ore can be made in a Fusion Reactor by using Lithium Cell and Wolframium Cell. This is an endothermic reaction and consumes a lot of EU.

Also with GregTech, Sheldonite Ore can produce Iridium Ore using a Pulverizer (1 Sheldonite Ore, 10% chance) or Rock Crusher (1 Sheldonite Ore, 10% chance).

Iridium Ore can also be produced by using UU-Matter produced in a Mass Fabricator or a Matter Fabricator depending on the GregTech difficulty setting. If GregTech is installed, a Mass Fabricator cannot be used. The UU-Matter recipe can also be disabled in the GregTech config file, however it is enabled by default.

With Advanced Solar Panels installed, Iridium Ore can be made in the Molecular Transformer by putting in an Iron Ingot, which will transform into 1 Iridium ore after 9,000,000 EU.

Usage[edit]

Iridium ore is not used directly, but is required to craft Iridium Plate. Iridium Plates are used to craft the QuantumSuit and many mid- to high-tier items in the Gravitation Suite and GregTech mods. With GregTech, the only purpose of Iridium Ore is to be compressed into an Iridium Ingot.
