The Shimmerleaf is a rare flower only found at and around the base of a Silverwood Tree, making them telltale signs of high Vis levels in areas where Silverwood trees may be hard to distinguish, such as in a Jungle where other trees may block out the sight.
The shimmerleaf is used in the creation of Essence Potions. It is recomended to use them sparingly, as the flowers only spawn in groups of 2-3 and can only be picked up with shears. It cannot be placed in a Crucible neither can be duplicated.
In earlier versions, the leaves had no known use and could only be obtained by breaking them with shears.
