Ores are resources that provide the item that the ore holds. They appear to be stone blocks with the mineral or gem inside. Some ores, like Diamond, Emerald, Redstone, Lapis Lazuli, and Coal provide the resource itself. Other ores like Iron and Gold provide the ore block, which has to be smelted into ingots of the same. Ores are necessary for the building of stronger tools, weapons, and in some cases, the nether reactor.

How to mine ores
