Shadow Iron is an Ore in Nether Metals. It is the second most common nether ore, behind only Ignatius. Shadow iron ore is often hard to spot because it blends in well with the netherrack. Besides it's durability, shadow iron has fairly below-average stats across the board, including the lowest enchantability in the game. However, 1 shadow iron dust may be combined with 1 Lemurite[1] dust to create Shadow Steel, a more powerful Alloy.

Shadow iron bars can be crafted into a decorative brick block like other metals. It can also be used to make buckets and shears. Shadow iron is used for the 2nd tier nether forge, after ignatius.
