Astroneer Wiki

Hello all editors and users of the Astroneer Wiki! We are in the process of updating and switching over to use the new Fandom Desktop skin on the wiki. There will be many changes over the coming days, but the main goal is to keep the wiki feeling the same, as much as we can! If you notice any issues once the swap is made, please post them to the Admin Noticeboard so we can address it right away. We are also going to be completing the update to the Astroneer Wiki:Style guide, so there is a more up to date guide on how to style the wiki going forward.

Astronium is a rare resource in Astroneer. Astronium appears as iridescent clusters, fading from green in the center to fuchsia on the edge.


Astronium can be found in the outer core layers of all planets.

During the F.A.R.M update it can also be found inside purple spookysquash.


Astronium can be used in the Trade Platform to obtain various items.

Item Astronium:Item ratio
EXO Chip 3:1
Packager 1:4
Solid-Fuel Jump Jet 1:2
Dynamite 3:4
Hydrazine 3:4

Astronium can be researched for 500 bytes over 2.5 minutes, or 200 Bpm per nugget, but currently has no use in crafting.

In the EXO Automated Mass Production Protocol event, the player can send Astronium through the EXO Request Platform after finishing the main milestones and will receive a care package every 80 Astronium sent.

In the Project CHEER Delivery LTE, the player could craft Cosmic Baubles in a Small Printer by combining Astronium and Scrap.

Astronium can be used to open EXO Dynamics Research Aids. The reward for opening one is a QT-RTG.


  • Before Patch 1.0, Astronium deposits were a bright fuchsia, before being changed to their current gradient appearance, but the nuggets remained fuchsia. The nuggets' color were also once green before being later changed to purple and eventually, in Patch 1.0.15, changed to the gradient color we see now.
  • Astronium used to be found in small quantities on the surface of Radiated, and was easiest to find on Radiated for this reason. After Patch 1.0, Astronium was only found in the outer cores of each planet.
