Lapis lazuli ore is the ore block from which lapis lazuli is obtained.

Natural generation[edit]

Lapis lazuli ore is found at a depth of 31 and below. Unlike other ores, lapis lazuli utilises periodic gaussian generation. The highest concentration of lapis lazuli ore is found between levels 13 and 16. At this level the concentration is about 0.083% of all blocks (0.1013% of stone). The concentration drops linearly as one gets farther from these rows. Overall, lapis lazuli is around 1.1 times as common as diamond ore with an average of 3.43 lapis lazuli per chunk.

Obtaining[edit]

A stone pickaxe or better is required to obtain a drop from lapis lazuli ore. If mined with a Silk Touch enchanted pickaxe, it drops itself, otherwise it drops 4-9 lapis lazuli and 2-5 experience.

When mined with a Fortune enchanted pickaxe, there is a chance for the drops to be multiplied by between 2 and the level plus 1, up to a maximum of 2 to 4 at level III (for a maximum of 36 lapis lazuli dropped).
