Minecraft quartz is a resource that appeared in version 1.5 exclusively as a building material. It is mined in mines using a stone (or stronger) pick and is in many ways similar to sandstone, but much stronger. However, progress and time have "discovered" true quartz in the Minecraft world as well. This resource is markedly different from what can now be considered untrue.
Quartz in the game
Traditionally, quartz is an aesthetically pleasing and durable building material. So strong that quartz building blocks, unlike those made from other materials, cannot be recycled back into quartz.
It is mined in the form of blocks of quartz ore in the Nether, and then processed into blocks from which plates, steps, etc. are made.
Quartz in Minecraft has three varieties: the actual quartz blocks, carved blocks and pylons.
Nether ore is the only ore in this Inferno. From it you can create both building materials and severaladvanced items.
However, time passed and it turned out that it was not necessary to climb into the Lower World, since it was "open" … What would you think?
True quartz ore
Applied Energistics 2 mod added to Minecraft true quartz crystal.
It is extracted, as you might guess, from the ore of true quartz.
It is mined at heights 17-69. Deposits contain from 1 to 5 blocks. Mining requires at least a stone pickaxe.
A true quartz crystal, unlike quartz itself, is not a building material at all. Although, of course, you can build from it. But it is much more useful to use it for the manufacture of basic items. It also makes good tools with weapons.
Getting a crystal
To get a true crystal, place a block of true quartz in the center of the workbench. And from it, in fact, a crystal will be made.
Crystal in action
What can be made from a true quartz crystal? These are the following items:
Wrench (true quartz). Influence on equipment (on/off). Used in creating a network tool. Indestructible
Pick (true quartz). Extraction of mountain resources. Can be used as an ineffective weapon. Almost equal to iron, butindestructible
Ax (true quartz). Extraction of wood. Can be used as an ineffective weapon. Almost equal to iron, but indestructible
Shovel (true quartz). Mining light blocks like earth, sand, snow and the like. Almost equal to iron, but indestructible
Hoe (true quartz). Creation of beds. Almost equal to iron, but indestructible
Sword (true quartz). Melee weapon. Almost equal to iron, but indestructible
Cutter (true quartz). Required to create a namerpress and cable anchor
All true quartz items have a light blue tint.
Also, a true quartz crystal holds a charge well, which is then used to create a mutable crystal, but that's another topic.
For this, you need to put the quartz crystal in the charger.
From dust to stars
The options for using a true quartz crystal are not limited to this. But for subsequent perturbations, it must be crushed into the dust of a true crystal.
To "spray" put the crystal in a quartz crusher, or crusher (IndustrialCraft 2), or chopper (Thermal Expansion).
Dust can be turned into pure true quartz crystal seed.
|Sand block||Dust||-||Two Pure Crystal Seeds|
If the seed is thrown into water, a pure crystal of true quartz is formed, which is used in the creation of high-tech complex devices.
Quartz dust is also needed to create quartz glass.
|Glass||Dust||Glass||Four quartz glasses|
Glass incorporating true quartz is a necessary ingredient in high-tech items. Such as:
- energy cell;
- energy receiver;
- crystal growth accelerator;
- molecular assembler;
- spatial pylon;
- quantum communication camera;
- highlighted panel;
- electronic memory component (4k);
- electronic memory component (16k);
- electronic memory component (64k);
- empty electronic device case.
In general, true quartz in Minecraft is not just quartz for you.
