Amethyst buds are 3 crystal block stages that grow from budding amethyst.

Amethyst clusters are the 4th and final stage of amethyst buds.

Obtaining[edit]

Breaking[edit]

Amethyst clusters must be mined with an iron pickaxe or higher, dropping 4 amethyst shards or more with Fortune, otherwise it drops nothing. When mined with Silk Touch, the amethyst cluster or amethyst bud drops itself instead.
