Iron (Ore)



Tool Used

Stone Pickaxe or above






Yes (64)

Iron Ore is a mineral Block that can be smelted into Iron Ingots using a Furnace. Iron can be used to craft the second strongest tier of Tools and Armor, after Diamond, which is much more difficult to obtain.


In Infinite Worlds, Iron can be found commonly in Caves on Levels 1-64. It can be found in Mineral Veins of 2-8 Blocks or more. It can also rarely be found above ground near exposed areas of Stone.


  • 1 Iron Ore + Any Fuel => 1 Iron Ingot


  • Iron Ore is the second most common Ore after Coal.
  • Iron Ore requires at least a Stone Pickaxe to mine.
  • Iron Ore can never drop the ingot, and must be smelted like Gold Ore.
    • Therefore, the amount it drops isn't affected by the Fortune Enchantment since it drops its base Ore instead of the actual mineral. The same applies to Gold Ore.
