Stalhrim is a rare crafting material found in The Elder Scrolls V: Dragonborn. It can be found in several locations all over Solstheim but can only be mined with an Ancient Nordic Pickaxe.


In ancient times, the rock-like material, also known as enchanted ice, was used in the burial rituals of ancient Nords and Atmorans. The deceased would be encased in the material as a form of protection, a privilege that was typically reserved for Nordic individuals.[1] It was also believed to have been used to craft armor for ancient kings that fought in battle.[2]

By the Fourth Era, only the Skaal people retained the secret to crafting Stalhrim armor and weapons. Due to its innate properties, frost enchantments placed on Stalhrim items are more potent.[3]


Stalhrim armor and weapons cannot be forged until completion of the quest "A New Source of Stalhrim," obtained at the Skaal Village.

The Ebony Smithing perk is also required to craft Stalhrim items. Unlike other ores, Stalhrim does not require smelting, and is used in the state in which it is mined.


Frost enchantments, such as frost damage and resist frost, are 25% stronger when placed on items crafted from Stalhrim. This effect is identical to the Enchanting perk Frost Enchanter or the Destruction perk Augmented Frost, and stacks with both.


A total of 19 Stalhrim deposits can be found throughout Solstheim, granting a total of 57 pieces of Stalhrim. Mining a deposit takes twice as long as mining other ore deposits, six hits with a pickaxe per ore. Deposits typically replenish after 30–35 days, much like other ores.

The following is a list of locations where Stalhrim can be mined:

Location Description
Benkongerike Great Hall 3 pieces mined from one sarcophagus.
Bloodskal Barrow 3 pieces mined from one sarcophagus in a hidden room behind the waterfall located in Raven Rock Mine.
Gyldenhul Barrow 6 pieces mined from two sarcophagi near the entrance.
Kolbjorn Barrow 6 pieces mined from two sarcophagi.
Raven Rock Mine 3 pieces mined from one sarcophagus in the ruins at the bottom of the mineshaft.
Stalhrim Source 30 pieces mined from ten sarcophagi. Location is initially unmarked, but is located just north-west of White Ridge Barrow.
Unmarked glacial island, northeast of Northshore Landing. 6 pieces mined from two sarcophagi.

In addition, Baldor Iron-Shaper or Glover Mallory will sometimes have a small amount of Stalhrim for sale once "A New Source of Stalhrim" is completed. Their stock of Stalhrim, usually only two or three at a time, replenishes every two days.


This section contains bugs related to Stalhrim. Before adding a bug to this list, consider the following:

  1. Please reload an old save to confirm if the bug is still happening.
  2. If the bug is still occurring, please post the bug report with the appropriate system template  360  / XB1  ,  PS3  / PS4  ,  PC  / MAC  , depending on which platform(s) the bug has been encountered on.
  3. Be descriptive when listing the bug and fixes, but avoid having conversations in the description and/or using first-person-anecdotes: such discussions belong on the appropriate forum board.
  •  PC   360   PS3  Stalhrim Deposits replenish after a set amount of time, however if there is an object behind the deposit that can be interacted with, such as the body of a Draugr, there will be no option to mine the deposit, only to activate the object.
    •  PS3   Solution: If the Stalhrim has replenished and it can't be accessed, simply leave the area and come back again, this solves the mining bug.
    • Another Solution: Swing at the Stalhrim with your Ancient Nordic Pickaxe.
      •  PS3   Manually swinging at the Stalhrim Deposits creates a blood splatter effect as if hitting the Draugr.
    •  360   Solution: Travel anywhere in Solstheim then reload your last save should give you the option to directly mine by pressing "A" or to swing with your Ancient Nordic Pickaxe.
    •  PC(Fix)   Workaround: Inaccessible deposits can be re-enabled via console. Open up console with the ~ key, click on deposit, then type disable and enable. This restarts object and Stalhrim can be mined.
