Redstone ore is a naturally generating block, and the main source of redstone dust in a Mine Blocks world. Redstone is useful for creating simple mechanisms and machines, known as redstone circuitry.


Natural Generation

Redstone ore generates deep underground, in large veins.


When mined with an iron pickaxe or above, redstone ore drops 3-5 redstone dust and 4-6 experience points. It can also be mined with a pickaxe enchanted with silk touch, dropping itself.
