The Shard is an item added by the Thaumcraft mod.

It is a crystal that is harvested from as Infused Ore that is generated underground on most levels, in seams of 1 to 4. There are 7 Shard types: Fire, Water, Air, Earth, Order, Entropy and Balanced. All Shards contain Aspects. Shards are an essential crafting item used in many Thaumcraft 4 recipes. Another way to obtain a Shard is to trade with the Thaumcraft villager. He will usually offer 3 Shards in exchange for an Emerald. Tools imbued with the Silk Touch, Fortune, and/ or Treasure enchant 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.
