Natural generation[edit]

Tuff can generate in the Overworld in the form of mineral veins. Tuff attempts to generate 2 times per chunk in veins of size 0-862, from elevations -63 to 16, in all biomes. Tuff can replace stone, diorite, andesite, granite and deepslate.

Any diamond ore, gold ore, iron ore, lapis lazuli ore or redstone ore that generates in tuff will become its deepslate variety.

Usage[edit]

Tuff is currently used only for decoration.
