Top Ten Ores That Should Be Added In Minecraft

The Top Ten

1 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!

2 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

I thank whoever added this idea - HollyRolo

3 Uranium Ore

Power machines like elevators

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

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.

4 Ruby Ore

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

You can add rubies to your world using command blocks.

Ideas for how good ruby is:

Damage: Better than iron, but not as good as diamond

Durability: Better than iron, but not as good as diamond

Efficincy: As good as diamond

Rarity: Rarer than gold, but not as rare as diamond

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)

5 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.

My favourite one

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!

6 Graphite Ore

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

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.

I will love march 19 is my birth

I was born on March so HELLO!

I was born in march too!

8 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.

Super powerful enchantment and durability would be nice.

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

9 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

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

10 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

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.

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

Silver is the best

Silver iron and goldfish are awesome

12 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)

13 Mythril

Mythril is good

A tier between iron and diamond.

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

Mythril would be WAY better than diamond...

14 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

15 Tungsten

Hardest metal on the table

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 Titanium

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 - Joah

Titainium ore should be white white is cool to me

I think titanium ore would be cool in mincraft

18 Opal

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

Same here and its epic too!

19 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! )

20 Citrine

Citrine is my favorite gem!

21 Dolphin Ore

Now this is just getting random

This would be the random thing ever

I feel weird voting for this

22 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

23 Egg Ore

Lmfao imagine

Egg ore ok really

24 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

25 Painite

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

26 Peridot

I was born in august to!

I was born in august!

Born in august, so yeah...

I picked this ore because I was born in Augest and I really like the light green, the cool texture, feeling of it and other cool things about it.

27 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

28 Meteorite

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

Cool 'cause you could collect space ores! 🌙

29 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

Cool ore to be added I thing it will make a armor set 10x better than diamonds

30 Enderium

Maybe you could craft ender pearls from this?

31 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

32 Diamond Sword

It can do 24.75 damage it would be awesome DUH

But we gotta have villager swords

Wow he is so dumb

WE ALREADY HAVE A DIAMOND SWORD.
IDIOT.

33 Dirt Ore

Dirt that can be mined with a pickaxe - LugiaLover87

34 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!

Imagine... You could make pearl earings...

35 Obsidian Ore

No we already have a way of getting obsidian

Just empty a water bucket on flowing lava

36 Moonstone Ore

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

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

37 Jade Ore
38 Azurite Ore

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

I really like that idea.

39 Swag Orb

Swagswagswag all the way

40 Cheese Ore

yes cheese

41 Troll Ore

I would hate mc then - JayJayPlayzzz

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 😂

42 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.

43 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.

44 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

45 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

JANUARY 4 the WIN!

46 Aluminium
47 Herobrine Ore

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

48 Villager Ore

A villager turned to stone!
I would love a head like that😈

49 Notch Ore

Rarest ore of all never loses durability and is 90000000000000000000000 times better than ender ore of endness

50 Kryptonite

I spelled it wrong.

Think of it in the superman mod
