Can someone tell me what that spikey thing was?

I was going underground, and I came across a pool of water with a spikey thing in it. I hit it with a hammer, and was hurt. Pretty badly. What was it?

Demon Altar. Craft Strange Looking Eyes (10 lenses), Worm Bait (30 Vile Powder, 15 Rotten Chunks (may be wrong?) ), and I believe some high-tier armor may require use of the Altar to create as well. Not sure on that part. You can't move them.

You can't move them.

If I break the ground under the altar does it just float?

Also, I found one of these and hit it with my hammer, got hurt, and then Cthulu got summoned. I didn't even have the item.

cthulu comes sometimes by himself, though it usually gives you a warning message first of 'you feel an evil presence watching you' or something along those lines. It says that if you break the ground it's on, it disappears, though when I tried I just couldn't break the ground.

Also, it's not used for crafting high-end items, that was in the alpha. Now it's only used for crafting the two items to summon bosses, suspicious looking eye and worm bait.

How would you like it if someone turned you on and then left?
