Slurtle Slime is a Mob-dropped item. It is produced by Slurtles and Snurtles after eating certain Minerals, and also dropped when they are killed. It is very explosive and can trigger Earthquakes when ignited. It deals 50 damage per charge (It can be exploded in stacks) and is a very good alternative to Gunpowder as it can be easily farmed by feeding Slurtles minerals, though it deals less damage on exploding. Additionally, it can be used to refuel a Lantern or a Miner Hat by 9.5%.
