Where to find Zonaite in The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom?

Quite simply, the only way to acquire Zonaite in Tears of the Kingdom is to raid the Sky Island mines and the darkest parts of the Depths. These locations will be perpetual hotspots full of Zonaites as they will replenish with each Blood Moon.

More so, killing the enemies in the Depths will, unsurprisingly, reward you with a bunch of the resources you so badly desire.
