Usage[edit]

Breaking[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).
