Amethyst shards are crystalline minerals obtained from breaking amethyst clusters.


Amethyst clusters[edit]

Mining an amethyst cluster using an iron pickaxe or stronger yields 4 amethyst shards. Using the pickaxe enchanted with Fortune can yield up to 4 extra shards per level of Fortune, allowing for a maximum of 16 with Fortune III.

Using silk touch on a cluster allows the cluster to drop itself, along with the buds.
