Topaz is a biome-specific Gemstone introduced with Biomes O' Plenty. It appears as an ore, an item, and a decorative block.


Topaz Ore can be discovered in lush, tropical or jungle regions. A current list of these biomes can be found under Topaz Biomes


An Iron Pickaxe or better is required to mine Topaz Ore. A Silk Touch Pickaxe can be used to collect the block of ore rather than the Topaz drop. The ore drops one gem with an unenchanted pickaxe. With fortune, the ore can drop up to four gems, one extra per level of fortune. Topaz Ore cannot be smelted.The Ore is a common specimen in Minecraft and is found in many biomes and can be mined with an iron pickaxe or above.


9 Topaz can be crafted into a Block of Topaz for storage or decoration. These stack to 64.
