The "Sapphire Ore" block can be mined with a pickaxe in order to gain "Sapphire Gems".


An Iron Pickaxe or better is required to mine Sapphire Ore. A Silk Touch Pickaxe can be used to collect the block of ore rather than the sapphire drop.

Natural Generation Edit

Sapphire Ore can be discovered in water based biomes. These biomes include: Ocean, River, Coral Reef, Hot Springs (Removed), Kelp Forest, Mangrove, Sacred Springs and tropics.

Usage Edit

Sapphire Ore drops 1 Sapphire with an unenchanted pickaxe. With fortune, the ore can drop up to 4 Sapphire, (One extra Sapphire per level of fortune).

Sapphire Ore cannot be smelted.

It can however be crafted into 9 Sapphire, although this seems to be unintended.
