Luminous Ore Deposit

"This deposit contains quite a bit of luminous stone. Crack it open to get at the easily processed rocks within."
Luminous Ore Deposits (385 in the Hyrule Compendium) are treasures found in Breath of the Wild. Luminous ore deposits are small juts of dark stone typically found at the base of cliffs in rocky areas that will drop Luminous Stones and Flint when broken. They are easily spotted at night as they glow with a soft blue-green light.
Breaking luminous ore deposits requires Link to smash it with a weapon or to blow it up using a Remote Bomb. Using large, two-handed weapons requires fewer hits than smaller swords or spears. While using a weapon causes damage to the weapon, using a remote bomb will cause the materials recovered from the ore to scatter across the landscape.
Albeit unusual, there's the possibility that these deposits yield no ore.
