Tungsten Ore is a very rare ore generated by Redpower that currently has no uses within the Redpower mod.

However, it has a very high EMC value of 16,384 EMC, which is twice the value of a diamond. Eloraam's basic idea was to implement all of the world generation features first, and then later add usage possibilities for these ores, presumably not to break existing savegames. This approach was applied to the implementation of the gems Ruby and Sapphire (not Emerald because it can be used in crafting a sonic screwdriver), all of which can be used as a diamond substitute for crafting fast and durable tools.

An Iron Pickaxe or better is required to mine Tungsten Ore.

Tungsten Ore can be encountered in any block height where diamonds are found, and although it usually occurs as a single block, you can sometimes find a small cluster of two, three or even four. There have been rumors of people finding veins of up to six tungsten ore. Tungsten is very rare, in most cases, found only once or twice during a long mining expedition.

Tungsten ore is most commonly used in the Equivalent Exchange mod in an Energy Condenser or a Transmutation Tablet where you can create materials you need such as diamonds or gold.

Tungsten is the 74th chemical element, known as wolfram in most of Europe. In real life, it is used in cathodes in light bulbs, microwaves, and other electronic devices. It is also able to form very hard alloys.
