Have you ever felt the need for extra tiers of progression, like diamonds just aren't enough? Well, you're in luck! This mod uses new gems generated in the form of ores to craft tools, weapons, and armor. There are also other useful items added, such as a ring that gets rid of all of that pesky cobblestone. Scroll down for more info!



Gems / Ores:

  • Sapphire
  • Ruby
  • Amethyst
  • White Gold (NOTE: Smelts to nuggets, not ingots)

Pictures of Ore Generation:


All ores are generated in the overworld.

Ores are generated lower and rarer as usefulness increases


Only White Gold is generated, found below y = 64

The End:

Only White Gold is generated in the end. Generated all over the end island and 

is much more common than the overworld or nether.


FULL SETS of Tools (Sword, Pickaxe, Axe, Shovel, Hoe):

  • Sapphire
  • Ruby
  • Emerald
  • Amethyst
  • Reinforced Amethyst

Crafting recipe for tools:

All tools are crafted using obsidian and reinforced amethyst (pickaxe as an example)


White Gold nuggets are from smelting White Gold Ores:
