Lapis Lazuli Blocks are a semi-precious material block that contains Lapis Lazuli, which is slightly less rare than diamond.

Overview

The lapis lazuli ore has about the same rarity as the gold ore, being found only in the lower levels of a world. It can be found underground in y coordinates 0 to 30. When mined, it can drop 4–8 Lapis Lazuli. However, the drop rate is modified based on whether the mining pick is enchanted with fortune, and how strong the enchantment is. Instead of mining, you can obtain lapis by trading with a cleric or a wandering trader. You may find lapis in abandoned mineshafts and shipwrecks

Uses

The only uses of this ore are through the Lapis Lazuli pieces which drop when the ore is mined. These pieces can be used as a dye, as a reagent for Enchanting, or can be crafted into a decorative Lapis Lazuli Block.
