Icestone is a type of uncommon block found in the Aether.


It requires at least a Stone Pickaxe or Holystone Pickaxe higher to be obtained, and so, will drop nothing if mined with bare hands or a Skyroot Pickaxe.

Natural generation

Icestone can be found naturally generated in uncommon and small veins on the sides and undersides of islands. Icestone currently spawns in small veins of five or six, but can commonly spawn in small veins of one or two blocks. Sometimes, and this is really rare, it can spawn in veins containing up to 10.


Icestone's primary function is freezing any water or lava in a 7x7 radius from the placed center, respectively freezing into Ice and Obsidian blocks. Icestone Slabs, Stairs, and Walls do not freeze water and lava.

  • A good way to find Icestone is to start a mine closer to the bottom of islands, or look at the outside stone on different islands. These methods however, may be time consuming to get a large quantity of Icestone.
