Iron Ore is a resource that can be gathered with any pickaxe from iron ore veins, which are found within Sandstone.

It appears to be most abundant in the Desert biome, 10-15 blocks below the surface. It can also be found beneath Grasslands. [Edit: This is wrong as of 9.0! It is deeper, about 25 blocks. Please edit this and add accurate info.]

Iron Ore is refined into Iron Ingots at a Bloomery or a Blast Furnace.

Appearance[edit]

Iron Ore vein found within Sandstone.

Iron Ore is found underground (or occasionally exposed above ground) within Sandstone. It appears as a block that can be distinguished by darker and more pronounced streaks than the surrounding Sandstone.

Location[edit]

Desert[edit]

Iron Ore is most abundant within Sandstone in the Desert biome. Based on the default world generator files, Iron Ore has a 25% chance of spawning 10-15 blocks below the surface. It has a 5% chance of spawning 0-9 blocks below the surface and a 10% chance of spawning 16-30 blocks below the surface. Sandstone is the only type of stone found in the Desert at these depth ranges so the spawn percentages are reliable.

Grasslands[edit]

Grasslands also have a chance of spawning Iron Ore. According to game files, Iron Ore has a 10% chance of spawning in the Sandstone 0-70 blocks below the surface. There is an equal chance of finding Iron Ore at all depths in the Grasslands, but because it is only found in the Sandstone the actual spawn percentage may vary.
