Lead Ore is the second tier of alt ores. It is a material added in 1.2.

It is used to craft various weapons, tools, and armor. It can be found almost everywhere in small to medium sized veins. When a new world is generated, there is a chance that it will generate instead of Iron Ore. Lead is one tier above Iron, and one tier below Silver.

You can smelt three Lead Ores to make a Lead Bar using a Furnace. With this, you can craft the second alternate tier of armor. You can also combine Lead Ore and Stone to make a Lead Brick.
