Triangle shaped shiny red things

I found this red triangle formation while exploring and I am unsure what it is. I don't want to touch it until I know; what is it?

    For Adventure, you could have tried interacting with them. Then you'd have gotten an answer pretty quickly =) (+1 anyway, though)

Those are Rubies. In addition to appearing in stone, gems can be found attached to the sides of other blocks, particularly in a Gemstone Cave. You can harvest them with your pickaxe directly, or by breaking all the blocks next to them.

  • You can use them in many items, see terraria.gamepedia.com/Ruby

those are rubies that you can collect with any pickaxe you can make a ruby staff that does 21 magic damage ; you can improve your mana by collecting falling stars that fall from the sky at night and you can make mana crystals

  • This was already answered 3 years ago... and I don't know how the falling stars relates?
