Iron Ore is a common ore found almost everywhere in a Minecraft World.

Mechanics

Iron ore generates around and below sea-level in the Overworld. It is a crucial material to gather during the early stages of the game, since it can be made into an iron pickaxe capable of mining all types of ores (including diamond). Every Iron Ore block contains enough iron to make one Iron Ingot, when it is smelted

Appearance

Iron Ore is a grey block with spots, similar to coal, but with bronze/beige spots.

Obtaining

Iron can only be mined with a Stone, Iron or Diamond pickaxe; using a Wooden or Gold Pickaxe will not yield any Ore. Once it is mined, the user will gain an Ore block that they can place, but they will not be able to make any items using the Ore. They must smelt it down into Iron Ingots using a furnace and then create what they want. This makes Iron Ore one of the only two Ores that requires smelting, the other one being Gold Ore.

Uses

Iron is used to make Weapons and Armor with a higher durability than those made with stone, leather, wood, or gold. Iron can also be used to make minecarts, rails, compasses, and buckets. Iron tools can be used up to 251 times.

Trivia

  • In Survival Test, Iron Ore gave the player Iron Blocks, which didn't require any smelting as well as yielding nine times as many Iron Ingots.
