dye 4

Lapis lazuli is a primary color dye obtained by mining lapis lazuli ore. Similar to coal, emerald, redstone and diamond, lapis lazuli can be used immediately without the need for smelting. It is used to create the lapis lazuli block. In 1.8 Lapis Lazuli will be used in enchanting.

[edit] Obtaining

When mined with a stone pickaxe or better, a block of lapis lazuli ore will drop 4–8 pieces of lapis lazuli.

Note that this is both inefficient and wasteful, as a Silk Touch-enchanted pickaxe is needed to collect the ore block, and when mined Lapis Lazuli ore produces 4-8 Lapis Lazuli items, rather than just one by smelting.

[edit] Usage

Like all other dyes, lapis lazuli can be:

[edit] History

Beta
1.2 Added lapis lazuli.
1.2_02 Lapis lazuli ore can be found at bedrock level and now it drops 4–8 lapis lazuli per block mined (increased from 1) on single player only (Minecraft beta servers have not been affected yet).
Official release
1.2.5 The pick block key was broken, if you used it on lapis lazuli ore you would get an ink sac, unlike if you tried on diamond, coal, redstone, gold, or iron. This is because lapis is a dye that drops from an ore, and is a data value of the ink sac.
1.3.1 The pick block glitches were fixed.
Upcoming
1.8 14w02a Enchanting requires lapis lazuli, different enchantments that requires different amount of levels requires different amounts of lapis lazuli (between 1-3).
Lapis lazuli was made a renewable resource, as Villagers now trade lapis lazuli.
Console Edition
TU1 Added lapis lazuli.

[edit] Trivia

  • In real life, lapis lazuli is a medium hard stone used for making jewelry and as a pigment.
  • Lapis lazuli dye was going to be a crafting ingredient for the block Crying Obsidian, but neither the block nor the recipe were ever added.
  • Lapis lazuli is the only dye that can be crafted into a block.
  • Using a Fortune III pickaxe, it is possible to get half a stack of lapis lazuli from one ore block, giving it the highest maximum yield with Fortune.
