Prismarine crystals are items obtained by defeating guardians and elder guardians.



Prismarine crystals are dropped by 40% of guardian kills and 33% of elder guardian kills. The maximum drop count is increased by one per level of Looting.

Sea lanterns[edit]

Prismarine crystals are dropped by sea lanterns when not using a Silk Touch tool. They drop 2-3 crystals each time, which can be increased to a maximum of 5 using the Fortune enchantment.

Natural generation[edit]

Prismarine crystals can be found in 53.1% of buried treasure chests in stacks of 1–5.

In Bedrock Edition they can be found in 18.9% of buried treasure chests in stacks of 1–5.
