It's time for the Carbonado  (known as Black Diamond)!

Need translators!:


Sneek Peeks, News and Much more!


This description applies to version 1.6.1 of the mod

If you were using the default config in a version prior to 1.4.8, please delete the config and let it regenerate.

This mod adds a new ore  found inside bedrock both in the overworld and the nether. It's pretty rare, but in the overworld generates more (since in the nether is easier to remove netherrack). It's recommended to use TNTs to find it and don't worry, it's blast proof.
The ore can be mined only with a Diamond Pickaxe (or any other tool that has the Diamond Pickaxe or more mining level).

You'll extract only the mineral, the bedrock will stay there! For this reason, Silk Touch won't work.


The Statistics of the Tools and Armor are higher than Diamonds. 

To create Carbonado tools you need to merge a Diamond item (tool, weapon or armor) with the right number of carbonado, into the Anvil. (requires at least 1 level due to Anvil limitations)


Enchantments are kept but for a cost.



  • The Full Armor set has 24 Armor Points () and 3 Armor Thoughness
  • Durability is 50% more than Diamond

Tools and Weapons

  • Every Tool has 50% more durability of a Diamond Tool (2343)
  • The Axe has the same Attack Speed of an Diamond Axe (1.0) with more damage (10)
  • Pickaxe, Shovel and Axe are 50% faster than Diamond Tools
  • The Pickaxe is like a Diamond one so can mine Obsidian

Shards and Carbonado Reinforced Glass

  • Carbonado shards are useful to create Carbonado Reinforced Glass
  • To get Shards you have to drop an Anvil onto a Carbonado from a few blocks. From higher you drop it, more shards you'll get.
  • Now smelt those shards, you'll get Molten Shards (texture by Igrek)
  • One Molten Shard in the center plus 8 Glass around, you'll get 8 Carbonado Reinforced Glass .
  • Carbonado Reinforced Glass has the same properties of normal glass but has more explosion resistance and doesn't let light pass. Plus drops when broken and can be crafted into Carbonado Reinforced Glass Panes.
    Carbonado Reinforced Glass Panes have 50% chance to drop when broken.
