A Gold Nugget is a item which is used for crafting.

Source

Gold Nuggets have a high chance of dropping from a slain Zombie Pigman, can be found in the Chests of Desert Temples and Jungle Temples, or can also be created by placing a Gold Ingot into a crafting grid, which breaks it down into 9 nuggets.

Uses

  • Placing 9 gold nuggets into a 3x3 crafting grid will combine them together to make a gold ingot.
  • Surrounding a Melon Slice or Carrot with eight gold ingots in a crafting table results in a Glistering Melon or Golden Carrot, respectively.

Trivia

  • In some multiplayer servers, gold is either traded or used as currency. It is useful as it has multiple tiers (81 nuggets = 9 ingots = 1 block).
  • Since Zombie Pigmen carry golden swords with them, it is likely that the gold nuggets are pieces from the destroyed swords, since they are not dropped upon death. Only 1/18th of the gold from a pigman's swords are salvaged (assuming 100% drop rate). As of 12w06a, the swords themselves are rarely dropped.
  • With the addition of the gold nugget, gold has become a renewable resource, adding the metal block, the third tier of armor, the third tier of tools, the golden apple (since red apples are renewable as of the pre-release 11w48a), and the Glistering Melon to the list of renewable resources.
  • One would need 216 gold nuggets to craft a full set of gold armor.
