Carbonado Ore (aka Black Diamond)

I love making vanilla feeling ores.
And now it's time for the Carbonado  (known as Black Diamond)!

Need translators!:

Join my discord server to know new features before releases for both modpack and mods!

This description applies to version 1.4.4 of the mod

This mod adds a new ore  found inside bedrock both in the overworld and the nether. It's pretty rare. It's recommended to use TNTs to find it but don't worry, it's blast proof.
The ore can be mined only with a Diamond Pickaxe (or any other tool that has the Diamond Pickaxe or more mining level).

You'll extract only the mineral, the bedrock will stay there! For this reason, Silk Touch doesn't work.


The Statistics of the Tools and Armor are higher than Diamonds. Crafting recipes are always the same.



  • The Full Armor set has 24 Armor Points () (20 in 1.10.2) in And 3 Armor Thoughness
  • Durability is 50% more than Diamond

Tools and Weapons

  • Every Tool has 50% more durability of a Diamond Tool (2343)
  • The Axe has the same Attack Speed of an Diamond Axe (1.0) with more damage (10)
  • Pickaxe, Shovel and Axe are 50% faster than Diamond Tools
  • The Pickaxe is like a Diamond one so can mine Obsidian
  • Wither Skeletons have 5% chance (Increased / Decreased by Difficulty) to spawn left handed with a Carbonado Sword

Shards and Carbonado Reinforced Glass

  • Carbonado shards are useful to create Carbonado Reinforced Glass. 
  • To get Shards you have to place a Carbonado Block and drop an Anvil on top of it from at least 12 blocks. From higher you drop it, more shards you'll get. The base value is 2 stacks of shards with an anvil dropped from 128 blocks height, 32 from 12 blocks and 3+ stacks from 254 blocks. A good height is 128, but higher is always better.
  • Now cook those shards, you'll get Molten Shards.  (texture by Igrek)
  • One Molten Shard in the center plus 8 Glass around, you'll get 8 Carbonado Reinforced Glass .
  • Carbonado Reinforced Glass has the same properties of normal glass but has more explosion resistance than normal glass and doesn't let some light pass.

Advancements (1.12+ only)

  • The mod has advancements that help the player learn the mod (recipes properly unlock too)
  • The Tinted Window advancement will reward you 100 experience points on completion
  • The Even more dedication advancement will reward you 300 experience points on completion
