There are lots of ores in Minecraft and I'm going help you identify them now. as you can see in the picture, there are 7 common ores, coal, iron, lapis, gold, redstone, diamond, and emerald. It is very simple to make sure what the ores are: by the color, diamond is light blue, emerald is green, lapis is dark blue, redstone is red, gold is gold, iron ore is pink-ish, and coal is black.
My ultimate favorite ore is iron ore because it is the easiest ore to find and its good for tools. Also, iron armor is very useful because you can defend from harm. By "harm" I mean mobs, including zombies, skeletons, and creepers. Others are ender men, the ender dragon, and many more.
Whats your favorite ore? Tell me in the comments! see you next time with the ultimate guide to Minecraft how to get to the ender dragon and actually kill it.
