Gilded blackstone is a variant of blackstone that can drop itself or gold nuggets when mined.

Obtaining[edit]

Natural generation[edit]

Gilded blackstone generates as part of bastion remnants and can usually be found beneath bastion chests.

Breaking[edit]

Gilded blackstone requires a pickaxe to be mined, in which case it drops itself or gold nuggets. When mined without a pickaxe, it drops nothing. Gilded blackstone has a 10% chance to drop 2–5 gold nuggets when mined with any pickaxe. If it does not drop gold nuggets, it drops itself as a block. If a gilded blackstone is mined with a Silk Touch enchanted pickaxe, it always drops itself.

As with the drop chance of flint from gravel, the Fortune enchantment does not increase the amount dropped, but increases the chance of gold nuggets dropping. Fortune I increases the chance for this drop to 14.29% (17), Fortune II increases it to 25%, and Fortune III guarantees the golden nugget drop.
