  • Grows from Amethystknospenblock, which is found in amethyst geodes.
  • Starts out tiny, but grows into medium after a while, large after even more time, and eventually becomes an Amethysthaufen.
  • Unlike crops, each growth stage is a separate block instead of a block state.
  • Drops only when mined with a Behutsamkeit pickaxe.
  • There is a total of 3 variants (stages).
  • The final, mature stage of the amethyst bud, which grows from budding amethyst in amethyst geodes.
  • Drops amethyst shards if broken, in an amount affected by Fortune, but can also be picked up with Silk Touch.
    • Breaking by hand, piston, or other means drops only 2 amethyst shards instead of 4 that would be dropped by using any Spitzhacke.
  • Emits a light level of 5.
  • A decorative block found in amethyst geodes.
  • Unlike the Budding Amethyst, the Block of Amethyst can be obtained when mined.
  • Can also be crafted with 4 amethyst shards.
  • Generates amethyst buds/clusters on any side that is exposed either to air or a water source block.
  • Cannot be obtained when mined, even with Silk Touch, and does not drop anything.
  • Breaks immediately if pushed by a Kolben or sticky piston.
    • Cannot be pulled by sticky pistons.
  • Generates in amethyst geodes.
Glatter Basalt
  • A Basalt variant that composes the outer layer of amethyst geodes.
  • Can be obtained by smelting Basalt.
Getöntes Glas
  • A black variant of glass that is transparent to players, but does not let light through.
  • Can be crafted with 4 amethyst shards and a glass block.
    • Stained glass cannot be used to craft tinted glass.
  • Drops itself if mined without Behutsamkeit or even by hand, unlike Glas.
  • A deep grayish stone that can generate in blobs between Y = 16 to Y = -64 of the world.


  • Obtained from breaking amethyst clusters.
  • The amount dropped can be increased with the Glück enchantment.
  • Can be used to craft tinted glass, blocks of amethyst, and spyglasses.
  • Crafted with 2 copper ingots and an amethyst shard.
  • When used, it zooms in on wherever the player is looking but limits their view to a square.
    • The scope Textur is a Glas square with a Kupfer border.
    • The overlay that limits the view can be removed with a resource pack or by pressing F1.
  • There is a unique animation for using the spyglass, which is visible in a third-person perspective or by another player.

Spitzer Tropfstein
  • If a stalactite is hanging from a Dripstone block with a water source above, it will slowly grow both the stalactite from above and a stalagmite from below
    • Growth speed is random but very slow, a single growth step can take several Minecraft days
  • A stalactite will only trigger growth if it is max 7 in length, and if the stalagmite or floor is max 10 blocks below
  • If the stalactite tip is inside water it won't drip, and therefore won't trigger any growth
  • If the stalagmite tip is underwater it won't receive drops, and therefore won't be grown by a dripping stalactite. Same thing if there is any fluid between the two tips
  • A stalagmite or stalactite will never grow when submerged in fluid
