Minecraft has been a sandbox survival video game for over ten years. This game is a puzzler for even the most seasoned players.
Although the game is full of content, most of its survival progression relies on the mining of resources from the earth’s surface. We will be discussing two of the most precious resources in the game, Netherite and Diamond.
Minecraft’s most rare ores are Netherite and diamond
Let’s start with the two Minecraft ores mentioned above, diamonds and diamond ore.
Diamonds can be found in the Overworld dimension at the lowest levels. These resources can be used to create high-tier gear such as weapons and tools of the highest level, as well other items like enchanting table, firework stars and jukeboxes. You can either generate diamonds naturally or from chests that spawn in different structures on the map.
The ore block from the diamond resource must be considered in terms of rarity. There are two types of diamond ore: a deepslate or tuff block or a regular block.
You can also produce below Y 16 levels. The most profitable levels for diamonds are Y levels -50 through Y level -64. The ore has a chance of generating below Y 16 (especially between Y levels 16, 5), with an approximate probability of 0.0846%. This means that one in every 1200 blocks below Y 16 will be a block of diamond ore.
Let’s now compare these stats to Netherite or Ancient debris in Minecraft.
Netherite, a valuable resource that is mined from an ancient debris source which can only be found in the Nether dimension, is rare. It is used to transform diamond gear into Netherite equipment, as many players are aware.
Netherite gear is fire-resistant, durable, and one of the greatest advantages over other resources. It is resistant to fire and lava, so it doesn’t burn up or become destroyed.
The ore block for Netherite called Ancient Debris is the most rare. Two blobs of ancient debris are produced between Y levels 8-22, and 22-119.
The Y level -15 area has the highest concentration of Ancient Debris. The spawn rate of ancient debris is 0.004%. This means that it has a 1 in 25000 chance that an Ancient debris block will spawn in one chunk.
This analysis will help players determine which resource in Minecraft is more rare. Players can see that Netherite is more rare than diamonds by comparing the 1 in 1200 chances of ancient debris and Netherite.
