The Prismatic Shard is a Mineral. It is one of the rarest items in the game. It can be obtained from Omni Geodes, Iridium Nodes, Mystic Stones, Gem Nodes and Fishing Treasure Chests. It is also a rare drop from Serpents, Mummies, Shadow Brutes, and Shadow Shaman. They have a small chance (0.05%) to be dropped by any monster after the player has reached the bottom of The Mines. A Rainbow Trout Fish Pond has a very small chance to produce 1 Prismatic Shard when the population of the pond reaches 9. One may occasionally be found in a treasure room in the Skull Cavern.

Prismatic Shards cannot be duplicated in a Crystalarium.

A Prismatic Shard can be used in The Desert to obtain the Galaxy Sword. The Dwarvish Headstone in the graveyard contains a riddle explaining how to obtain the Galaxy Sword.

A Prismatic Shard can also be offered to the Dark Shrine of Selfishness at the Witch's Hut, in order to turn children into doves (getting rid of them permanently).

On Thursday the Desert Trader sells 1 Magic Rock Candy for 3 prismatic shards.
