A strange type of ore is seen in the Phazon Quarry on the Pirate Homeworld. It is "a mix of between muscle and wood in it's shape, but actually composed of metal ore, with veins of hot blue glowing substance inside." A Mining drill can be operated to mine the substance, and it glows orange when cut, but this glow soon after fades. There are two deposits in the Phazon Quarry on either side of the room; one is cut into a Half-pipe that Samus Aran uses to leave the room and the other becomes a staircase in the wall to a Missile Expansion.
"Numerous fractures detected within these rock sections indicate they are ready to be mined away."
- Other "ores" arementioned in the series includes Urthic and Phazon ore.
