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 will not produce ore blocks as they do for other gems and crystals. However, the Fortune and Treasure enchantments do affect the number of shards.
Data Values and Ores
The ore is called <Shard type> Infused Stone. (e.g: Fire Infused Stone) It is not obtainable without cheating it into your inventory.
The type of the shard (and ore) depends on a secondary data field (beyond the item ID of 25261), which is also used to store the damage for tools and so is commonly referred to as a “damage value”, or the DV.
