The Pickaxe, Minecraft's iconic symbol, is used in the game to rapidly mine stone and ores. A pickaxe can be made from: wood, cobblestone, iron ingots, gold ingots, or diamonds with two sticks.

A certain material pickaxe is needed to mine a certain ore (Ex: your need an iron pickaxe for Diamond ore)

Trivia

  • Prior to 0.6.1, if a diamond pickaxe is used on Bedrock, it would break within 20 minutes, due to Bedrock being unbreakable.
  • Wooden or Stone Pickaxes are useful if you are going on a non-mining adventure as they can clear Stone in case of emergency.
  • Golden pickaxes are the fastest when mining Stone-related and Sandstone-related items, but have only 33 uses, making it the weakest Pickaxe.
  • If you mine an item with the wrong pick, it will merely destroy it.
  • Pickaxes are sometimes found in village chests.
  • Mining Obsidian is only possible with the Diamond Pickaxe.
  • Gold Pickaxe is the only pickaxe that can't mine its own ore.
