Shards are crystals that generate as infused ore underground, in seams of 1-4. There are 6 shard types: Fire, Water, Air, Earth, Order, and Entropy. All shards contain Aspects. Shards are an essential crafting item used in many Thaumcraft 4 recipes. They can be found on about any Y value.

Another way to obtain shards is to trade with the Thaumcraft villager. They will usually offer 3 shards in exchange for one emerald.

Silk Touch, Fortune, and Treasure enchantments can all be used on Infused Stone.

Data Values and Ores[edit]

The ore is called <Shard type> Infused Stone. (e.g.: Fire Infused Stone)

The type of the shard (and ore) depends on a secondary data field (beyond the item ID), which is also used to store the damage for tools and so is commonly referred to as a “damage value”, or the DV.
