Stone or above

Lapis Lazuli (aka Lapis) is a semi-precious resource that serves many purposes. It was added in Update 0.4.0.


Lapis Lazuli is found deep underground. Lapis Lazuli Ore can be mined with a Stone Pickaxe. After Update 1.0.4, Lapis can also be Traded for using Emeralds.


Lapis Lazuli cannot be used for Tool making. Instead, it can be turned into Blocks for building, used as a Dye, or used to Enchant (which was added in Update 0.12.1 and requires 1-3 Lapis Lazuli). It is arguably one of the most unique minerals in the game.



  • Lapis Lazuli + Cactus Green => 2 Cyan Dyes
  • Lapis Lazuli + Bone Meal => 2 Light Blue Dyes
  • Lapis Lazuli + Rose Red + Pink Dye => 3 Magenta Dyes
  • Lapis Lazuli + Bone Meal + 2 Rose Red => 4 Magenta Dyes
  • Lapis Lazuli + Rose Red => 2 Purple Dyes


  • Lapis Lazuli Ore is roughly as rare as Diamond Ore in Old Worlds.
  • Lapis Lazuli is the only mineral which can be used as a dye.
  • Lapis Lazuli can be found in a Minecart with Chest in Abandoned Mineshafts.
  • When used in enchanting, 1-3 Lapis Lazuli and Experience are required for enchantments.
    • The number of Lapis used depends on the tier of the enchantment made. 1-tier uses 1 Lapis Lazuli and so on.
