Netherite is a rare material from the Nether, used primarily to upgrade diamond gear. Netherite items are more powerful and durable than diamond, and in dropped item form are resistant to fire or lava. Netherite blocks are also unbreakable by the strongest explosions from normal gameplay, with the exception of blue wither skulls.
Blocks and items
Many blocks and items make netherite, are made with netherite, or are directly stated to be netherite. They are:
- Ancient Debris − the blast-resistant ore form rarely found at low altitudes in the Nether, or as loot in bastion remnants (which may also contain netherite scraps and ingots).
- Netherite Scrap − an item obtained by smelting ancient debris, used to craft netherite ingots.
- Netherite Ingot − used for crafting and upgrading gear to netherite.
- Block of Netherite − the mineral block form of netherite ingots.
- Joke feature
