Top Ten Ores That Should Be Added In Minecraft

The Top Ten
1 Amethyst Ore

I was born on February too! To me, amethyst looks more better than all of the other gemstones! No hard feelings? Good, pew! I thought people would hate me, anyway, my mom loves the color purple so yea, oh and you are right on sky's skin he does have a amethyst on him, COOL!

Sincerely, diamondlover18

Yes this should totally be added because I'm 99% sure there is no purple gem in Minecraft. It wouldn't be very confusing, and it's worth the addition- but I don't know what it would do. I don't think it would work for armor.

I LOVE PURPLE plus I need good armor. All of my armor is leather dyed purple or diamond armor that MUST be enchanted (I struggle when I mine for diamonds) if you can make mods with purple and ferrets please do it because I am too lazy to make mods

I find this the most possible one. Emeralds already take the place of rubies and I can't think of a good "metal" use for copper, and copper tools aren't such a good idea

2 Uranium Ore

It could be a way of killing things! Place a block of uranium within blocks of it and it's health starts to decrease, or you could put it under a water source block to produce heat and steam, so you could have saunas or more realistic baths

It could be depleted to become depleted uranium for very strong tools and armour.

If they add this hopefully you can craft a nuke with it.

Doesn't everyone love killing things? It's so fun... Okay no don't add it it

3 Rainbow Ore

I think it would be cool to have rainbows in the sky after it stops raining. A rainbow block is a cool idea- but seems kind of out of place in Minecraft. It would be right at home in the Aether mod, though.

That would be best and it doesn't matter what place it's in its all
About what you like right.

This is a rainbow ore who wouldent want that. We could make rainbow blocks and rainbow apples and rainbow a biom

Like in explodingtnt's video?

4 Ruby Ore

Yeah I'm Also Born in July And Ruby Means Contentment
If We Need This ore we need a new mob that we have a relationship with ruby
I say the mob is a kinda like a villager this is how it works
The Mob Will Be Called "Rangers". Rangers Will Defend your house, castle etc
If you give them rubies... By Right clicking on them you can choose their class an archer-ranger or an assasin-ranger they're like villagers but for defense

Actually, rubies and emeralds were going to be added to Minecraft together. They had the same look, just different colors of ore. There were going to be ruby weapons and armor... But someone working on the addition of emeralds and rubies was green-red colorblind (? ) and so the people decided to only add emeralds. (Trivia obsession over here oops)

Rubies are one of the best gems in the world! Why not put it in minecraft, they could be like emeralds for trading with villagers, and making tools.

I'm born in July so rubies is my birthstone so it makes sense that it needs to be added 100%. I've heard that instead of rubies, they put emeralds.

5 Copper Ore

Copper in real life has similar properties to redstone, but redstone is too rare. Copper Ore should be similar in appearance to granite, and have a one in four chance of dropping a copper piece, otherwise dropping regular stone. And it shouldn't be called copper ore. Redstone dust could be smelted into copper, and copper wire (redstone+copper) could be used interchangeably with redstone wire but useless in the crafting table. Copper pickaxes would be as fast and durable as iron but mine the same blocks as stone. Copper would also be used for tons of miscellanous stuff like iron is. Copper might also be dropped by zombies as a rare drop like iron and also by zombie pigmen and blazes more commonly. Finally, zombie pigmen's golden sword may be replaced with a copper one half of the time, but half of them would still have gold swords.

Make this happen, but add the ability of crafting copper dust which works exactly the same as Redstone dust but doesn't connect to Redstone dust and only gets powered by copper torches instead of Redstone torches.

Also: Mojang doesn't like adding stuff that's already in mods, so it should be a bit more unique than just "copper", what about bluestone/limite instead of "copper"? (so we could maybe have dark blue or green armor? )

Although, I'd much prefer copper as copper... Just add enough minecrafty ways to use copper so Mojang gets interested :D

Copper would be the next thing I'd add. Copper would be very useful, with copper tools + armour, and copper wire.
�"Copper pickaxes would be able to mine the same things as stone but would be faster, more resistant and enchantable.
�" Copper wire would do the same thing as redstone wire when laid down but wouldn't be usable is any of the same crafting recipes. 2 copper wire could be crafted by 1 redstone dust and 1 copper ore.
In addition copper could be used in miscellanous stuff like iron is.

Copper + tin = Bronze? Coal + iron = Steel? It could be similar to runescape. and tin could be rare in every biome but common in plains. Where I live tin is common but the rest of the entire world has rare deposits of tin.

6 Graphite Ore

I like the idea of how graphite would turn into diamond if it had enough heat and pressure, but I guess that's to advanced for minecraft now, but I guess Graphite could be used for other things like a conductor fo redstone, but I think that's about it. I still like the pressure idea though

If you add enough heat and pressure to graphite, it will turn into diamond.

Minecraft should have more ores.

7 Aquamarine Ore

I wasn't born in March, but I love aquamarine ore. It could spawn in coral reefs as a rare ore(basically exclusive to that very biome, just like emeralds, that only spawn in extreme hills). Also it could be used for tools and armor and have the following:
Durability: close to diamond tool durability
Efficiency: as good as iron
Damage: just like iron
Rarity: spawns only in coral reefs, which is already a rare ocean biome.

If I get this aquamarine ore, some cute mermaid will appear.

Minecraft should have more ores.

I was born in march too!

8 Sapphire

It would be awesome to add sapphire in the game you could make another enchantment table with better enchantment than the original one! but sapphire would be rare

I was born in September and sapphire means clear thinking.

This gem is pretty. I love the way it is

Minecraft should have more ores.

9 Platinum

I think platinum should be a bit more common than diamonds, but in smaller quantities and has extra enchantment capabilities, like either it has a better chance of having more than the regular amount of enchantments, or it has its own special enchantments, or you can enchant it multiple times.

I agree Platinum

Stronger than iron... Less than diamond on armor
Rarer than diamond less rare than emerald

Yeah platinum should be a bit more rare then diamonds and better too.

Super powerful enchantment and durability would be nice.

10 Mercury Ore

Minecraft should have more ores.

The Contenders
11 Silver Ore

How about silver ore spawns only in the nether (for a change) and wither skeletons spawn with silver swords... Silver would be less common than nether quartz and is a little better than gold, and more durable too.

The nether does not have its own ore so silver would work! also I wonder what ore would work even better with the nether?

You know, adding silver is pretty much guarenting werewolves. They can only be killed by silver.

Silver is the best

12 Moonstone Ore

I would find this moonstone ore and use a pickaxe. If I collect a lot of moonstone ores, a lot of Clefairy Pokémon could appear.

13 Mythril

Yas this would be awesome! It should be a silver-turquoise-lavender color and stronger than diamond

This definitely should be better than diamond, no question, great idea!

Mythril would be WAY better than diamond...

A tier between iron and diamond.

14 Troll Ore

I would hate mc then

15 Butter Ore

Hey, notch knows about sky, so why not? People could stop saying "It's butter, not gold." because it wouldn't! This would be butter, and people can call it butter, while gold is gold.

Okay but how about instead of mining it we make a butter churn and churn the milk and then it turns into some butter? And if you have enough then you can make a block out of it?

Butter is stronger than diamond in real life so why not put it the Minecraft (Skydoesminecraft rules! )

You could always make butter in the crafting table under food with like milk r somethin lik that. So yeah but also the people that call gold gold (like me) wont get creticized 4 calling gold "budder". I subscribed to sky, but I accualy lik squids and I think the "budder" idea is childish. And I'm 11. But I respect sky. So I still voted 4 this

16 Plutonium
17 Tungsten
18 Commandblock Ore
19 Topaz Ore

My birthstone too, I'm in!

It's my birthstone duh

20 Steel

Steel doesn't come from ore. It's a mix of iron and carbon or something like that. What? I'm in grade 6. It's not like I do chemistry or anything.

Steel is an alloy

21 Opal

Opal is beautiful and I am born in October. Also the animation will look boss because its white with marks of rainbow in it. And that should come with armor and weopons. Look at opal online and you will see how boss ot can be!

Minecraft should have more ores.

Very awesome imagine the armor...

Same here and its epic too!

22 Titanium

Titanium is not as rare as you might guess - it's actually the fourth most abundant metallic element in the earth, after aluminum, magnesium and iron.
It is just very costly to make

23 Zircon Ore

Have you ever SEEN Zircon? It's a beautiful amber colour... I think it would be a great addition to MC. My opinion... I just think it would be interesting... what would you be able to make with Zircon!?!? Oh, this is getting me excited!

A way to make a Jewlery table, we already have gold, a gold chain with this gem on it! Awesome!

24 Dolphin Ore

Put it this way. Mining, collecting and smelting 'dolphin ore' would make you end up with 'dolphin ingots.' Making a 'dolphin pickaxe' with this means that whenever you mine, you could spawn a dolphin. If you use it right, it could be awesome.

Minecraft should have more ores.

That doesn't even make sense?

It just sounds awesome

25 Citrine

Citrine is my favorite gem!
