In Lunacraft, Alchemy is the process of transmuting one Material into another (eg. transmuting Gold Ore into Silver Ore); however, this will only happen to a few blocks per explosion. To achieve this, you will need the Brown Mob's explosion on any block that can be transmuted.
You will occasionally notice a new material appear in your inventory, even though you have not actively collected it, this is likely the result of your explosive encounter with a Brown Mob. Below is an incomplete list of known transmutations. There may be a pattern for determining what a material will transmute into, based on the block type values in the Items list. A material will usually transmute into the material with the next higher block type value.
Some materials are only obtainable through Alchemy. Here is a list:
- Silver Ore
- Molybdenum Ore
- Shale Gravel
- Quartz Ore
- Zicron Ore
