The Platinum Pickaxe is an early-game pickaxe. Its alternate ore counterpart is the Gold Pickaxe.

The Platinum Pickaxe is able to mine blocks and ores weaker than Ebonstone, Crimstone, Hellstone, and Pearlstone (which requires a pickaxe with at least 65% pickaxe power, e.g. a Nightmare Pickaxe). Most notably, it can mine Meteorite.

(Desktop, Console and Mobile versions) The Platinum Pickaxe can also mine Obsidian.

Its best modifier is Light for harvesting purposes and Legendary for combat purposes.
