This page lists description quotes for the item Ambrosium Shard, which originate from various sources. Sources are in game from the Book of Lore item (in the original The Aether mod) or officially as word of god from the developers.

Aether I[]

  • Book of Lore: "Found in Holystone. Makes Ambrosium Torches and is the fuel of the Altar. Can enchant grass."

Extended Lore[]

"The primary source of fuel in the Aether, Ambrosium is a volatile material, that naturally emits heat and light without burning, but can also be ignited to cause rapid burning. Used for both fuel, lighting and even in some cases medicine, Ambrosium is a multipurpose material that has become valuable for modern society.

"Another ability Ambrosium has is “Enchanting”, this is where Ambrosium reacts with Zanite, this causes rapid burning and dispersal of the Ambrosium around the Zanite, and into any other materials placed nearby. This can cause heavy changes in the material properties of the subject. Quicksoil, when “Enchanted” crystallizes and turns transparent, Gravitite Ore layers up into even plates and Simple foods gain healing properties.

"Overall Ambrosium is a useful, however incredibly common material that every adventurer should have a large stock of. But be warned, Ambrosium is not to be consumed raw. It can cause instant healing but has adverse side effects in the long term. Do not eat it..." [1]
