    For the life of me I can't mine cobalt with the molten pickaxe. Its a new 1.1 world. The only thing I did that might be a cause is I broke around 9 demon alters in a short period of time. Also i've found loads of cobalt ore in the world, but as yet no mythryl.

    [update]

    Just confused as it was actually mythryl, not cobalt.

    You should be able to mine it. You sure it's cobalt and not mythril or adamanitite? Because molten can't mine those.

    Mythril looks blue in regular cave light.

    Maybe you should fiddle around with your monitor's colors?

    No, it's probably the lighting in the cave. Whenever I find ore I can't immediately identify, I cover the area in regular torches.

    Sounds like your monitor's color is screwed up.

    nm. The fault is likely a splunker potion. For some reason they give off different colors than the ore themselves (why Red?)

    The top is what I have, although slightly lighter in game. Sorry, but the wiki page (below) is not the same.

    I'll edit the original post as its not a problem; I just have tons of mythril everywhere and no cobalt. :D

    Mythril has slighty different texture than other ores. Good to know, and a good way to differ it with spelunker potion/colored lightning.

    well that sucks for you because you need cobalt to make a drill for the mythril
