I decided it was time to investigate the corruption, but I can't break the corrupted rock (or whatever it is that looks like rock inside the corrupted area). My silver pickaxe or bombs simply don't do anything to it.

How can I break it?

If you are referring to Ebonstone, according to wiki, you can destroy it using a Nightmare Pickaxe (or better), Dynamite, or purify it first using Purification Powder and then mine it normally.

Oh, so not bombs, only dynamite. Thx, thought my pickaxe was to weak but the non-working bombs confused me :) –  Let_Me_Be May 23 '11 at 10:10
    
@Let_Me_Be Bombs should work fine (although they will obviously blow up less of it than dynamite) –  Justin May 14 '13 at 8:21

@Justin Bombs work now, but at the time of the question they didn't work. –  Arperum May 14 '13 at 11:03

Dynamite is still a better bet anyway. You'll be pecking away at it with grenades. –  Zibbobz Oct 4 '13 at 14:10

It actually is breakable using Bombs. It's just not possible using Grenades.

You need a nightmare pick or better.
