Silica Pearls are an essential item for anyone who wants to build electronics in ARK: Survival Evolved. Unfortunately, their acquisition often poses significant problems. This post gives you an overview of how to find them.
How to find them
The key to harvesting the pearls is to recognize them. The image to the left shows a typical underwater clam populated with the pearls. You’ll be able to find these on the ocean-floor and in underwater caves. Simply pick the white pearls from the stone using your hand.
As with any underwater farming mission, certain precautions should be undertaken. For starters, before you attempt to dive deep you should make sure to kill any sharks or other hostile creatures in the area. Also be sure to take advantage of Lazarus Chowder. That’s a stew you can brew, and it reduces your Oxygen consumption underwater, which is quite handy. You can create it in the Cooking Pot using this recipe:
- 5x Savoroot
- 5x Longrass
- 2x Narcotic
- 10x Mejoberry
- 9x Cooked Meat
