Ardite is a tool material in Tinkers' Construct. It can be found naturally in the form of Ardite Ore, which can only be found in the Nether, usually in the high Y levels. It can be made into blocks, ingots, and nuggets like most other metals, and can be melted down in the Smeltery. It can be used for tools, adding the Stonebound II ability, and is also used to make the alloy Manyullyn.


Ardite Ore can be first mined by Alumite, Steel, or Pig Iron material picks, then later by Cobalt, Ardite, and Manyullyn picks, and can be put in the Smeltery to make two ingots' worth of Ardite.

This can be found in the Nether just like Cobalt, in the high Y levels. It is a reddish colour, so is harder to find than cobalt, a blue which contrasts with the netherrack.
