Redstone is one of the most sought-after materials in the world of Minecraft. Whether you’re building a contraption, an automated farm, or just want to mess around with redstone wiring, getting your hands on this coveted material can be difficult. Here’s a guide to where you can find and use redstone in Minecraft so you can get crafting!
1. The most common place to find redstone ore is deep underground. You’ll need an iron pickaxe or better to mine it, and it will only appear between levels 0 and 16. It’s important to note that redstone ore won’t drop itself when mined – instead, you’ll need to mine four blocks of redstone ore, and it will drop one block of its precious dust.
The further you go down into the ground, the more likely you will find some ore.
2. Another great spot to look for redstone is in the ravines. Ravines are those big gashes in the ground that can be found on the surface. They usually lead pretty deep down into the earth, so they’re a great spot to start digging for redstone.
3. If you’re feeling really adventurous, you can even try digging straight down (just be careful not to fall into lava or something, lol). I’ve had good luck finding redstone that way, but it’s a risky move!
Overall, finding redstone is not always easy, but with some persistence and a little bit of luck, it’s definitely achievable! By keeping an eye out while mining or looking for abandoned mineshafts as well as trading with villagers or collecting from nether fortresses – you should have no problem getting your hands on enough resources for whatever project you want to tackle next!
