Lapis Lazuli Ore

Lapis Lazuli Ore


Lapis Lazuli Ore is obtained through mining, using a Stone Pickaxe, Iron Pickaxe or Diamond Pickaxe. It is typically found at fairly deep levels, near Redstone Ore.

Usage / Purpose

The principal use of Lapis Lazuli Ore is to produce Lapis Lazuli, which is used as a blue dye in various crafting recipes.

Drops / Yields

One block of Lapis Lazuli Ore produces several units of Lapis Lazuli.


While the Ore itself is not storable (unlike Iron or Gold), the dropped Lapis Lazuli is storable in stacks of up to 64 units.


Lapis Lazuli Ore does not need to be smelted to retrieve the Lapis Lazuli. It only needs to be mined.
