Thaumium is used to create exceptionally durable and enchantable equipment.


It requires 8 of the Metallum (Metal, Mine, Ore) Aspect and 4 of the Praecantatio (Magic, Sorcery) Aspect in a Crucible to craft, yielding one ingot. In addition, it requires 5 vis from a wand used on the Crucible.


Thaumium ingots can be used to craft armor and all tools from vanilla Minecraft. The enchantability of these items is high enough to get all level V enchantments without the need of using an anvil. Also, the "Repair" enchantment is only available for equipment made of Thaumium.

Thaumonomicon Entry[edit]

"Thaumium is the result of infusing base metals with raw magical energy. The result is a metal harder than iron with the ability to accept enchantments beyond that which iron is normally capable of.

A metal such as this has many applications in the crafting of more advanced thaumaturgical devices.

It can also be used to craft tools, arms, and armour in a crafting table using the normal recipes."
