A Gold Nugget is an item obtained by killing Zombie pigmen, making it a renewable resource. It can also be crafted by putting a gold ingot into any space in the crafting table. One gold ingot will yield nine Gold Nuggets. Nine gold nuggets placed in a 3 by 3 square in the crafting table grid will yield one gold ingot. They can be used to craft a golden carrot or glistering melon for brewing. Golden Carrots can also be used as a cheaper method to breed Horses (also see Breeding). Also, gold nuggets can be combined with gunpowder and dye to create a firework star that bursts in a star-shaped explosion.

Video[edit]

Note: The video is outdated; it says the golden apple requires eight gold nuggets and the glistering melon requires one. Currently, you need gold ingots or blocks of gold to make a golden apple and you need 8 gold nuggets to make a glistering melon.
