Meteorite is an Ore you receive from mining Falling Stars. It must be smelted in an Ore Smelter to extract Bar of Metiron with % chance, otherwise it smelts into Gneiss (which is affected by your skills). Meteorite is a type of stone, so it can also be used as pavement and to build with.


A star itself has no quality. The harvested meteorite's quality is determined by the player's skills but is softcapped by a tool.

  • Wish upon a Star (2018-08-20) >"Added Falling Stars. Every once in a while a star will be knocked loose from the firmament of the Hearth, and begin hurtling towards it. Hearthlings are informed of falling stars by an event notification. While a star is falling, and if it is night time, you may use a new Hearth Magic, "Star Gaze" to get a tracking indicator, pointing, with some randomness, at a likely crash site for the star.
    A falling star will be glowing red hot for some time after impact, during which time it can't be touched. Once it has cooled off, however, you may harvest a new mineral "Meteorite" from it. Metorite is an ore.
    Falling stars are gentle creatures, and avoid landing on claims.
