In the Desktop version, ore (and other treasures) will be displayed with a yellow tint. This will somewhat alter the natural color of the highlighted treasure, such as making 钴 turquoise and 山铜 red. Some ores are not affected, these being 猩红 (unlike its counterpart 魔矿), 陨石, 黑曜石, and 狱石. Meteorite does however provide its own light.
- 铜矿 has a reddish tone.
- 铁矿 is red and blue, flashing.
- 银矿 has a blue shade.
- 金矿 looks like copper, but with a slight yellow tint.
- 魔矿 is very hard to distinguish from silver. Since it always gives off a glow, Spelunker is not needed to search for it.

- 秘银矿 looks like silver, only the texture is slightly different and has a hint of green.
- 精金矿 is like copper but darker and more red.
- Spelunker Potions are best used while playing in high display resolutions.
- The effect of spelunker potions is similar to that of the 洞穴探险荧光棒, but with the advantage of being able to mine and perform other actions at the same time.
