Lapis lazuli


#1

I have been wondering what lapis lazuli is and where to find it. I heard that it is a mineral so I dug for a long time and found a cave with it in there. I was about 100 blocks deep.

i think you post this in the wrong sub forums. I found my lapis lazuli at the top of the tallest mountain in my world!

What do you do with the lapis lazuli because I have heaps of it I just don’t know what to do with it

It is used as a dye, and that’s about it. Very rare, and almost as useless.

I only ever found 1 block of Lapis Lazuli, and I believe it was fairly close to the surface, maybe in the first 25-50 blocks from the surface (hard to recall). It’s used as a blue dye.
As far as I know, clay is only found near the surface, and gold is found in the bottom 1/3 of the earth. Not sure if there’s any other materials that are restricted to certain locations.

I actually found my Lapis Lazuli at the base of a mountain I just overcome. Very surprised because it was only 3-5 blocks under the surface. About 5 Lapis Lazuli fairly close together.

As was said, it’s used as dye and nothing as else to my knowledge. But it’s a great colour I reckon.

Thanks, I still haven’t found one on my current world, so i’ll keep a close lookout for it! I’m about to attempt to walk around the entire world, so I guess I may find some!

Use the dye to make a paint and use it on your house. Nice little status symbol, showing how much of the rarest block you found.

Rarest block? Status symbol? Cool. Then behold my roof! LoL


#11

Now you just need some Red Marble.


#12

Got that too! Just sitting in a chest for now. I haven’t decided where or how to incorporate it.


#13

I used mine to line my basement. That world got hit with a death star though. :wink:


#14

It looks neat when you place it, and it can be used to make a beautiful blue pigment. Or, you could make a fake pool for whatever reason.


#15

I found at least 30 down a rocky area. But have no idea what to do with them.


#16

Welcome to the forums, Fern! You can make pigments out of lapis lazuli or simply use it for columns, stairs, and building. Pigment is crafted at a press, stairs and columns at a stonemason’s bench.


#17

Lapiz can be used as dye or to decorate with blocks stairs and columns :slight_smile:
I think red marble is rarer!! :slight_smile:


#18

I have a blue house!


#19

My world has scrambled with so many red marble!
