A crucible is used for making sand into glass, crafting objects from glass, and smelting a metal bar into nuggets (or vice versa).

How to Use

Crucible needs fuel. Coal will enable all recipes, Wood (Block or Branch) doesn't produce enough heat for Alloying Bronze or Glassmaking. Fuel can not be removed once added, and adding coal to Crucible using wood will just make it burn wood longer.

Light the Crucible with a firebrand or a torch, then right click it to walk close to it. This allows you to use crafting recipes that requires a Crucible, the condition explained above withstanding.


The crucible does have a quality which is determined by the quality of the bricks and clay used to make it (Unlike a Quern for example). However, it has no effect on any of its products. Perhaps this could change.

It does determine the quality of Irrlights that have chance to spawn when crucible is used to craft something. Irrlight will be the same quality as the Crucible.

Game Development (manual)

  • Early Legacy feature (2008-2009).

Game Development

  • Colorful Crucible (2021-04-11) >"Added variable materials to "Crucible". The Crucible can now burn both coal and ordinary fuel (e.g. wood), but some processes may require coal. We had not intended to make nuggets strictly dependent on coal."
