You can spot iridium thanks to its red glow. Typically, this ore spawns on top and the sides of rock formations. When you find a cave, gather as much iridium as you can carry and take it back to your base for storage.

Iridium is used to craft heat-related structures such as heaters, iridium rods, and explosives. As caves are not all that common, we recommend you clean caves out of iridium when you find them.
