Lapis lazuli(pron.: LAP-iss LAZ-zew-lye/lee) is a vanilla ore that is used to make blue dyes and decorative blocks. Like coal, redstone, emerald ore and diamond ore, the block yields the resource immediately after mining, requiring no crafting or smelting. It drops 4-8 lapis lazuli shards, which can be used to create blue wool as a dye color, crafted into a lapis lazuli block, or mixed with other dyes.
Lapis lazuli is based on the real stone for which it is named and has historically been a prized and rare stone used in jewelry and as a dye.
Lapis lazuli can be mined with a stone or better pickaxe. It is usually found at a depth of 31 and below. The highest concentration of lapis lazuli ore is found between levels 13 and 16. At this level the concentration is about 0.083% of all blocks (0.1013% of stone). The concentration drops linearly as one gets farther from these rows. Overall, lapis lazuli is around 1.1 times as common as diamond ore with an average of 3.43 lapis lazuli per chunk.
9 lapis lazuli pieces can be used to make a lapis lazuli block.
