This mod replaces all vanilla ores (and soon most mod ores) with pretty nice versions of them.

Those ores have some special properties:

  • They destroy the whole vein at once! No need to dig out a cave just to get the whole vein, these ores come to YOU!
  • They are harder to break, they take considerably longer to mine.
  • Shiny ores actually shine! (Diamond and Emerald only)

Remember to create a new world or else it won't work!
