Fibrous Taint is a block added by the Thaumcraft 4 mod. It is common in Tainted Lands where it spreads on everything like Fire. It inflicts the player standing on it with Taint Poison debuff for 2 seconds, but it does "taint" Dirt and Grass it touches in Tainted Soil and Oak Wood and other types of wood into Crusted Taint after some time.

It cannot be collected, even with Silk Touch. But it can be moved by machines like Translocator or collected by Vajra.

Thaumonomicon Entry[edit]

Thaumic Exploration[edit]

"Sometimes, Thaumaturgy goes horribly wrong. Miracles become twisted calamities and the very landscape twists into hideous forms. Tainted Lands are places infected by the sick runoff of magical workings, flux. Local flora and fauna become warped and mutated into forms hostile to normal life and the very ground of a tainted land infects those who tread upon its pulsing fibres.

Tainted Lands can be found naturally in the world, but can also form when a careless Thaumaturge allows flux goo to stagnate for too long. They are recognizable by their telltale purple fibres and bright violet stalks. Left alone, the tainted land will gradually extend its tendrils outwards, infecting more and more of the surrounding land. Dirt becomes thick, pulpy Tainted Soil while trees and other natural materials are slowly covered in fibres and converted into structurally unsound crust which can collapse or melt into flux goo at any moment."
