Contradiction: can ancient debris spawn exposed to air?[edit]

It says that ancient debris cannot spawn exposed to air but shows a picture of "naturally-occurring" debris spawning in a cave open to air. One of these must be flawed

Why is this referred to as an ore?[edit]

I'm not sure why ancient debris is referred to as an ore. It doesn't seem to match the typical definition of ore (because the name "ancient debris" seems to imply it is not a natural rock or sediment, but remnants of destroyed artificial structures). Is ancient debris internally (in-game) classified as an "ore" somewhere? --AttemptToCallNil (report bug, view backtrace) 07:24, 7 March 2020 (UTC)

 Support declassifying it as an ore. They honestly share no similarities. The texture doesn't resemble any other ores. The name doesn't contain the word "ore." It uses different sounds and materials from all other ores. Neither it nor its smelted version are used directly in crafting a tier or armor material. As you said, it's almost certainly not natural. The only thing really tying it to the term "ore" is that it is part of the process of obtaining a new tier, but, as I said, it's not direct like any other ore.
There's also the argument of it generating similar to an ore, which is not very strong as many other things that are definitely not ores follow the same generation theme and are even referred to as ores in code (such as dirt, gravel, andesite, infested stone, etc.) -PancakeIdentity (talk) 21:49, 11 March 2020 (UTC)
 Support. For some reason I actually personally want to classify it as an ore, but I can't think of any good reason to do so. In addition to what's noted above I'd like to note that every single "other" ore in Minecraft actually has "ore" in its name (which this one is obviously lacking).--Madminecrafter12 (Talk to me | View what I've done) 22:03, 11 March 2020 (UTC)
 Oppose - Mojang refers to ancient debris as an ore right at the start of the 20w06a changelog.

This snapshot contains new biomes, blocks, and a fancy new ore called "ancient debris".

Is it affected by the fortune enchantment Hazbo111 (talk) 19:15, 7 March 2020 (UTC) No, it only ever drops 1 block of debris, similar to iron and gold ore. 12:55, 20 October 2020 (UTC)

Max number of debris in a chunk?[edit]

I'm wondering how the max number of debris in a chunk adds up to 13? Extrapolating from what I know about the generation of diamond ore I would expect veins to "grow" towards the south east meaning that only the chunks to the north, west and north west of a given chunk could contribute debris? I'm also assuming that the veins with a maximum of 2 debris could only have 1 of them cross the border?

If my assumptions are correct, which I'm not at all certain of, that would mean there would be a maximum of 5 debris from the chunk in question and 3 debris from each of 3 neighboring chunks adding up to 14? --Hexalobular (talk) 21:57, 15 July 2020 (UTC)

Sure, if you've actually got enough to spare! Explosion-resistant, too... --MentalMouse42 (talk) 01:58, 18 March 2021 (UTC)
