Phazon ore is a raw, unprocessed form of Phazon used by the Space Pirates in the Prime Series. Various report panels describe how the substance is highly durable and useful for their operations in the Glacier One facility in the Phendrana Drifts. It exhibits a shell similar to rock that acts like armour.
Project Titan was created completely from Phazon ore that had somehow gained sentience.
- "Phazon ore appears to bind through Phazon energy. Thermal imaging is required to detect the highest concentration of radioactivity, which serves to bind the stones together. Imaging research is being conducted in the Containment Vault area of the facility."
- "Phazon ore is extremely durable and blast-resistant. Although the armor-like qualities of this shell provide ample protection, Thermal Imaging can be used to detect weak areas in the casing. Improvements must be made to this shell in the event that these weaknesses are found by aggressors."
- It may be that the Phazon crystal-like rocks found in several areas may be Phazon ore. This is especially supported by the fact that one of these rocks is found in a room called Ore Processing.
- In Metroid Prime 2: Echoes, the Space Pirate Logs entry 06.362.2 states that "With each raid, she steals Phazon ore, only killing those who attempt to deny her."
