Amethyst clusters are a pretty cool thing to have in Minecraft. In this article, we’ll show you how to grow them. Actually, it’s not a difficult process, but it does take a lot of time.
First off, let’s clarify what a geode is. It’s a structure that generates underground and is kind of like its own mini biome. When you find one of these, you will see two blocks naturally inside them: the block of amethyst and a budding amethyst on the outside. You’ll also find calcite and smooth basalt.
The block of amethyst is pretty cool on its own, but for growing the cluster, you don’t need to place a shard there. Instead, they will grow out of this block by themselves. You just have to wait for a long time. Sometimes, it can take a really long time, so it’s good to make sure you are close to a geode and be patient.
The only way to get these clusters to grow is by letting them sit there. You can’t even pick up the block with a silk touch enchantment on your pickaxe. You just have to wait for them to grow. However, if you use a pickaxe without the silk touch, it drops shards instead.
Fortune three is very important to use on them because fortune does affect how many shards they break. So, it’s best to wait until you get the fortune three enchantment before mining them. If you don’t wait, it won’t be worth the time.
One way to find geodes is to raid them instead of waiting for them to grow. You have to use a silk touch pickaxe to pick up the amethyst clusters and take them back with you.
To find geodes faster, you can use the x-ray technicality by putting down a rail, a cart, and a composter on top. You have to make sure it’s in a corner, and then, get in the cart and look around. If you don’t see one, then you know they go further and place down another one.
In conclusion, growing amethyst clusters in Minecraft is not a difficult process, but it does take a lot of time. You just have to be patient and wait. If you have any questions or comments, please leave them in the comment section below.
