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 recipes.

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.
