The Red Matter Pickaxe is an item that is part of the Equivalent Exchange mod. It is the second fastest pickaxe in the game, inferior only to the Red Morningstar. It is also unbreakable, like the Dark Matter Pickaxe that it is made from.


It has 3 charge levels, and once charged, 4 different mining modes. They are as follows:

  1. Standard (1x1x1)
  1. 3 wide (3x1x1)
  1. 3 long (3 blocks in front of you)
  1. 3 tall (1x3x1)

When fully charged, if the player right-clicks on a vein of ores, it will destroy the entire vein leaving a loot ball containing all of the ore which can then be picked up. Sometimes in large veins (commonly with coal), it will drop two separate Loot Balls. Also, pressing R will automatically mine resources near you in the same way, even through walls.

This is an upgrade from the Dark Matter Pickaxe, because it can mine through a vein of 32 of the same ore instead of the Dark Matter Pickaxe which will only mine through 16 of the same ore by right clicking. The Red Matter Pickaxe also mines faster than the Dark Matter Pickaxe, as with vanilla pickaxe upgrades.

  • The Red Matter tools are not enchantable.


The pickaxe consists of 3 Red Matter, a Dark Matter, and a Dark Matter Pickaxe.
