How to Get Crystallized Iron in Islands – Fast Farming!

We're taking a quick look at how to get Crystallized Iron in Roblox Islands aka Skyblock that is a newly added item to the game that can be used to create a new weapon! This is a pretty valuable resource because it is very rare. It's particularly hard to farm because it can only be obtained by physically mining the nodes of iron yourself. So, to get around this type of thing, there's been some AFK mining contraptions created that we've shown in this guide.

Crystallized Iron Guide

To get Crystallized Iron you just need to mine iron nodes that either spawn at the mine, Slime Island, Buffalkor Island, or from a totem at your or someone else's base. This is a very rare drop and will take a long time to farm. You need to mine a bunch of the iron veins just to get one. You won't know that an iron node has a Crystallized Iron in it until you mine it. The only way you will know if you've gotten it is to watch the bottom right of your screen where it tells you what you've collected. You can also check your inventory if you've been mining mindlessly and not paying attention because you might get one without realizing it.

The best way to get it is to just set up multiple Iron Totems on your island and just mine iron over and over until you have as much as you need.

What is Crystallized Iron Used For?

Right now there's only really one use for Crystallized Iron. You can use it at an Anvil to create an Iron War Axe. This is an upgrade to the wooden sword weapon is pretty weak. The Iron War Axe requires that you have 3x Crystallized Iron, 1x Steel Rod, and 40x Iron to create. This is a ton of iron you'll need to get, so having multiple totems will be a good way to get it!

AFK Crystallized Iron Farming

There is a faster way to farm up crystallized iron, but you'll need to have access to conveyor belts and quite a bit of coin. So, what you can do is get a bunch of Iron Totems and place them on a couple of blocks. Then you'll place some more blocks a couple blocks away from these. This will allow the iron nodes to spawn only on top of these blocks. Once you've got that, you'll need to create a conveyor belt layout that you can stand on which will move you in front of the nodes to mine. You'll also need an auto-clicker or macro to keep you mining while you go AFK. For a far better explanation, check out this video:

  1. Question: when a conveyor is placed beside an iron totem it will spawn iron ore on the conveyor, does that mean crystallized iron might also be able spawn on the conveyor too?

  2. LMAO when i just started playing islands someone said if I can buy him a coal totem and he will give me somethin and he gave me a cry iron :v

  3. Cry iron drop chance: 1%, Value: ~300K, Uses (best to worse as of factory update): Drill, Vending Machine, Sprinkler, Iron War Axe, Droppable by totems: Iron Totem False, Test totem N/A, but believed to be able to automate, judging by wiki, possible by using item sorters to get rid of iron ore

  4. Is there Any Other Way To get Cry Iron?

    1. You could buy it from other players via their vending machines? I put a video in the guide that shows a way you can afk farm it.

  5. What is the value of crystal iron?

  6. errr whats the drop chance

    1. Its a 1 in 50, so 50×2 will double the odds if the percentage is 100% meaning theres a 2% chance to get cry iron.Its not too rare, i like to just mine in Wizard Island as i dont have enough iron totems and they wont provide enough nodes.I literally got 1 cry gold, and 2 cry iron just from mining in Wizard Island

    2. It’s very low, but I don’t know the exact percentage.

      1. It’s 1 out of a 1000.

  7. Will it work with automated iron farms? (conveyors+industrial chest)

    1. You mean using iron totems? If so, need to mine iron nodes and if you put it on near conveyer (assuming its the correct way) you will not get the cry iron.

    2. no you cant sorry lol

    3. I don’t believe so, but I haven’t been able to confirm that.
