Top Ten Ores That Should Be Added In Minecraft

The Top Ten

Amethyst Ore

Well for one thing I'm part of the SkyDoesMinecraft fanbase and the gem in the amulet on his skin is an amethyst. Also I'm born in February and my birthstone is the amethyst. AMETHYST ALL THE WAY!

Amethyst all the way I was born in February too so I love amethyst's😃

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

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.

Amethyst would be able to make a better Enchanted Table than a diamond, plus you could also add allot more magic into the game... SKYDOESMINECRAFT!

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 would be a new ore that you could either use for some type of portal, power source, or damage object

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

I want uranium to build a nuke

Rainbow Ore

Yeah, mabye it can be rare ore and if you mine it you will get all colours of dye

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.

This would be pretty and awesome

You should also have rainbow block, it would be a cool building material

Ruby Ore

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)

These could be for the top armour and weapons and also they should be the rarest ore.

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.

Ya the rubies should be added in that's one smart brain you have

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.

Copper Ore

If you mix a copper ingot with redstone you should make copper wire which will make a redstone signal go faster than normal.

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.

Yeah! Actually, ruby ore exists in minecraft... If you have imagination! Sapphire? Again. IMAGINATION CRISIS! Emerald? In the game but 1000 times rarer than diamonds. Think about it. Copper? Um let me think... Um... Ugh! Nothing for copper. More value than stone less value than iron. I don't agree that it SHOULD be added, but it would be cool! NICE SUGGESTION!

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.

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.

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.

I was born on March so HELLO!

I was born in march too!

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


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.

Platinum should be in between iron and diamond and platinum should be less rare than diamond but rarer than iron

I agree Platinum

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

Super powerful enchantment and durability would be nice.


I was born in September, so DUH!

My birthstone and my favourite colour and this was my favourite before I even knew my birthstone was sapphire

This gem is pretty. I love the way it is

There is emerald so we should add ruby and sapphire which were made first

Mercury Ore

It kills you hee hee hee If you manage to obtain it It could kill other mobs without hitting

Mercury is not that toxic


The Contenders

Silver Ore

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

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.

If they have gold, they need to have silver. don't forget the werewolves. AWESOME SUGGESTION

Silver is the best


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

A tier between iron and diamond.

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

Mythril would be WAY better than diamond...

Moonstone Ore

more ore more
end need ore
better more end ores
so moonstone ore

An ore in the end. Cool! Another reason to go to the

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.

Again maybe too rpg ish but craft amulets out of this!

Troll Ore

how about hit it and go to server 666? or see a null like figure?

look like a diamond but would appear a null if mined

I would hate mc then

It looks like diamond but explodes when you mine it... I don't know what I'm doing no no please don't add it 😂


I know there's mods with Uranium and Plutonium so I figure add it with Vanilla Minecraft instead of mod packs like Tekkit (Tekkit is awesome though)


Hardest metal on the table

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?

Screw butter ore. Would be the most useless thing ever.

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

Commandblock Ore

So like first you mine it and have to Cook it in a Furnace and BOOM get a commandblock. also good for hacking servers, TAKE OVER THE SERVER WITH THE COMMAND BLOCK! Vote please

Cool idea with the server thing

git good

Topaz Ore

I would love this maybe build a house out of it

My birthstone but I wonder if emerald is a birth stone

My birthstone too, I'm in!

It's my birthstone duh


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


I am making a mod with titanium in it

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

Titainium ore should be white white is cool to me

I think titanium ore would be cool in mincraft

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!

Zircon comes in a variety of colors, notably being white, clear, amber, and blue. - Juan-Luis

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


So pretty! Maybe this is too rpg ish but you could craft amulets

I was not born in October but I love this color

Very awesome imagine the armor...

I think it should be added because Opal look awesome


Citrine is my favorite gem!

Dolphin Ore

Now this is just getting random

That doesn't even make sense?

This would be the random thing ever

I feel weird voting for this
