The Magnifying Glass is a craftable Item exclusive to the Hamlet DLC. It is found in the Treasure Hunting Tab, requires an Iron Ore, a Blue Gem and Twigs to craft, and an Alchemy Engine to prototype.

The Magnifying Glass can be used to light burnable objects on fire from a distance, and to craft The Tinkerer's Tower. However, its main purpose is to investigate Peculiar Objects and Suspicious Cracks in the Ancient Pig Ruins. After using a Magnifying Glass to investigate a Peculiar Object or Suspicious Crack, the Character will state clearly whether or not the Object conceals an item or the Crack conceals a door to a hidden room. In the first case, destroying the Object (e.g. chopping down a Tree and digging up its stump or mining a Boulder) will reveal one of the following items:

Mants are afraid of the Magnifying Glass, and will panic if the player is holding one while nearby.
