Tool Used


Redstone Ore is an ore block that can be mined to drop Redstone Dust. Redstone Ore did not drop anything until Update 0.8.0 but that has since been changed.


Redstone Ore can be found deep underground. It spawns in large veins like Coal Ore and drops multiple pieces of Redstone Dust at a time. Redstone Ore can only be mined by a Diamond Pickaxe or Iron Pickaxe.


  • In Minecraft for PC and console, redstone is used as a power source. *However, it cannot be used as a power source in PE yet.
  • Redstone Ore lights up for 45 seconds if tapped by the player.
    • The light emitted by a Restone Ore is not bright enough to stop mobs from spawning though.
  • Redstone Ore was one of the first ores implanted into the game's code.
  • It also emits a red particle effect when touched by the player.
  • When mined, it will drop 3-5 redstone dust.
