Fake (left), real (right)

Terraria's Sword in the Stone, the Enchanted Sword (item)Enchanted Sword is a sword that shoots sword beams and can be found in Enchanted Sword Shrines. You'll recognize one when you see a 1 block wide shaft leading to a rainbow shaped cave at the end with 2 pools of water on each side and a sword in the middle. Enchanted Sword Shrines are rare and are not guaranteed in a World. Furthermore, a lot of the time, the sword is fake. You can tell if it is fake if the sword look dull and bland. A real one has blue and yellow with a red jewel connecting the blade and the hilt. A real sword has 90% of dropping the Enchanted Sword (item), and a 10% chance dropping a TerragrimTerragrim.

If you were unable to find a Sword Shrine, you can also obtain it by opening Golden or Titanium Crates. Golden Crates can be fished in Pre-Hardmode, while Titanium Crates can be fished in Hardmode. Both crates contain roughly the same loot.
