Mineral Block


Low Light level for 45 seconds if touched, none if left alone



First Appearance

Version 0.1.0

Tool Used



3-5 Redstone Dust

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 6-8 pieces of Redstone Dust at a time. Redstone Ore can only be mined by a Iron Pickaxe or higher.


  • As Redstone Ore had no drops before Update 0.8.0, it was customary to mine around the ore in a survival world and leave it until 0.8.0 was released.
  • Redstone Ore lights up for 45 seconds and has a particle effect if mined, tourched or walked over.
  • The light emitted by a Redstone Ore is not bright enough to stop mobs from spawning, unlike a Torch or Glowstone.
  • Redstone Ore was one of the first ores implemented into the game's code.
  • Glowing Redstone Ore has a different Block ID than of the Redstone Ore.
