Top Ten Ores That Should Be Added In Minecraft

The Top Ten

1 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)

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.

You can add rubies to your world using command blocks.

2 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.

Ruby looks liek redstone and sapphire looks like lapis lazuli. Amethyst is completely separate. - Juan-Luis

3 Sapphire

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

Pretty blue!

4 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.

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. - Harri666

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.

5 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.

I want uranium to build a nuke

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

6 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.

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.

7 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.

This would be pretty and awesome

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

8 Mythril

A tier between iron and diamond.

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

Mythril would be WAY better than diamond...

Da best

9 Painite

Better than the average ‘sapphire’ or ‘platnum’ in my opinion

10 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.

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

Silver is the best

First add guns to mc pe then add silver bullits

The Contenders

13 Azurite Ore

A beautiful dark blue gem. About the strength as iron.

I really like that idea.

14 Plutonium

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)

15 Enderium

Maybe you could craft ender pearls from this?

16 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!

17 Graphite Ore

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

18 Aquamarine Ore

I was born on March so HELLO!

I was born in march too!

If I get this aquamarine ore, some cute mermaid will appear. - playstationfan66

19 Citrine

Citrine is my favorite gem!

20 Kryptonite

I spelled it wrong.

Think of it in the superman mod

21 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 - Joah

22 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.

More like noob ore

23 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 - Joah

Titainium ore should be white white is cool to me

I think titanium ore would be cool in mincraft

24 Dolphin Ore

Now this is just getting random

That doesn't even make sense?

This would be the random thing ever

I'm so random lol

25 Tektite Ore
26 Commandblock Ore

28 Egg Ore

Egg ore ok really

29 Tungsten

Hardest metal on the table

30 Creeper Ore

Gets 1000 TNTs Ex Rare But Fun To Grief With!

So cool! maybe when you place it it would spawn 10 creepers! :D

Go mine it and say goodbye to your life

31 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

32 Meteorite

That Would be Awesome! I love Space so y not?

Cool 'cause you could collect space ores! 🌙

33 Super Ore

When you mine it you go to super Mario world! - Harri666

Rare But Worth It. - ChipTheGamer

Yes I am the creator of this ore - ChipTheGamer

Strongest Armor in le game...

34 Fossils

Could mine the block and it drops an ammonite or a trilobite, then you experiment on it to get DNA and bring it back to life, new mob or just put them on the wall

Crafted into fossil bones

Get a mod called fossil mining

That would be awesome

35 Dirt Ore

Dirt that can be mined with a pickaxe - LugiaLover87

36 Pearl Ore

That would be so cool. Especially if you could find it inside of a big clam you had to battle! Underwater. You could use it to trade with villagers or just as decoration. Cool.

Yes I love the idea someone posted about having a giant clamshell that you find pearls in!

Pearls would be really cool!

It's my birth stone!
It could make you breath under water for ever!

37 Obsidian Ore

No we already have a way of getting obsidian

Just empty a water bucket on flowing lava

38 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. - playstationfan66

39 Troll Ore

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 😂

40 Red Diamond

Why not have another color sword! Minecraft has yellow gold swords, blue diamond swords, white iron swords etc. Rubies in real life are not as hard as diamonds. So why have another color diamond sword. The ore would be really really rare, but the tools are incredibly efficient, the swords have 20+ attack damage, and the armor would have the same durability as ordinary diamond stuff.

41 Turquoise

I can just imagine trading with the villagers with this. Oh! And you can make Jewlery!

Born in December So You should vote if your born in December :) ice ice bby

Ughhh no offense but I totally HATE turquoise

42 Garnet

I mean, why not? I think its less valuable then Redstone and a little lighter than Redstone
JANUARY for the win

Yes January birthdays unite :)! - etweikert

Up top for garnet! - Ryan1704


43 Aluminium
44 Diamond Sword

It can do 24.75 damage it would be awesome DUH

But we gotta have villager swords

Wow he is so dumb

! Your sooo smart that would be great! Oh wait! WE HAVE DIAMOND SWORDS ALREADY GENIUS!

45 Herobrine Ore

When you find it you should becareful I recommend not bricking it...

46 Jade Ore
47 Swag Orb

Swagswagswag all the way

48 Bacon Ore

This would be useless. Under leather.

49 Dogite

Well killing wolves is hard enough why not make there be a tiny chance to drop dogite. it would have to be rare but powerful like 12 attack on a pickaxe! it would have to be rare though.
