Iron ore is the most common ore found in Mine Blocks. It can be mined with a stone pickaxe or higher and will produce an iron ingot when smelted. Iron ingots are the generic item used for crafting items like iron hoes, iron pickaxes, iron shovels, buckets, flint and steel, shears, and iron armor.
If mined with a stone pickaxe or above, iron ore drops itself. Otherwise, it drops nothing.
Iron ore generates in place of stone underground in the Overworld in random veins.
Iron ore can be smelted in a furnace to produce an iron ingot, which is a raw mineral which can be used to craft armor, many tools, and other items.
