Initially, the annual Minecraft Live event, which took place in 2020, introduced a lot of new content for Minecraft. The developers for the first time introduced a ton of new mobs, biomes, resources, blocks and even structures. One such new and the original structure was the amethyst geode.
However, the most interesting thing is that the amethyst geode in Minecraft includes several other blocks. For example, calcite And he, in turn, is also a new block, which was not in the game before.
Since all these blocks remain unknown and incomprehensible to many players, we recommend that you familiarize yourself with, for example, Minecraft calcite thanks to the guide below. The material contains known, up-to-date and detailed information on calcite blocks.
Calcite Minecraft Block Review
Calcite in Minecraft is a unique block added to the Java Edition version of the game after the release of update 1.17 (specifically, after the release of the 20w45a version, although a little later the developers slightly changed the texture of these blocks).
In any case, Calcite is a white block with shades of gray that currently has no function in the game other than decorative. Therefore, it is now considered exclusively decorative.
On the other hand, in the future, the developers plan to fix this and add recipes for stairs, slabs and walls made of calcite. In addition, in some cases, calcite blocks can be confused with polished diorite blocks, although in comparison, calcite has a pearly white smooth texture.
Where to find?
Calcite is part of the amethyst geode. Based on this, it is not difficult to guess that the key place where you can find blocks is amethyst geodes. As for a more precise location, the calcite blocks are located between the basalt and amethyst blocks. There are no other places where you can find calcite, so far there are no more in Minecraft.
What to destroy?
To begin with, you should know that it is impossible to get calcite blocks without a pickaxe in the character’s hands. As for the picks, absolutely any such tool is suitable for the extraction of calcite. However, if you are interested in detailed information on the block destruction time, then we recommend that you familiarize yourself with the following information:
How to craft?
At the moment, there is no way to create calcite in Minecraft. The developers have not added any recipes. And the only way to fix the situation is to use some kind of auxiliary mods.
How to get calcite through the admin panel?
The easiest way now is to get calcite in absolutely any amount through the administrator mode. Since it is enough to write just one command for this, we recommend that you first make sure that cheats are allowed in the world, otherwise you will have to create a new one. However, in any case, you will have to adhere to the following instructions:
- First of all, you need to open the administrator console itself (aka the admin panel) – to do this, press the “T” button.
- Next, after a new window opens, go down below and write in the line – “/give @p Minecraft: calcite” .
- At the end, all that remains is to use the command by simply pressing the “Enter” key.
Although that’s not all. Most likely, you will want to get calcite in large volumes. Therefore, if you suddenly don’t know, then at the end after the command you can put a “Space” and indicate the required number of blocks to receiving.
Alternatively, you can write – “/give @p Minecraft: calcite 64” . And in this case, the character will receive a whole stack of calcite. In addition, if you suddenly cannot use the command, check that the command is written without quotes or, as a last resort, use a command block.
Mods for Minecraft calcite
- Oversight mod. This modification will help all those who have difficulty finding the Calcite/Amethyst Geode. Because thanks to him, the character has the opportunity to detect any type of ore at a distance of 31 blocks from the character himself. However, for this you will first have to make items – “Eye for detecting ore”. This item has its own recipe, cooldown and other features.
Secrets and tips
- Initially, after Calcite was added to the Java Edition of the game, it was generated in batches. However, in experimental version 1.18, the developers decided to make it form in layers.
Calcite blocks, although they have no purpose so far, will definitely be involved in subsequent updates for Minecraft. Until that moment, they can be used for decorative purposes, since calcite looks quite attractive, thanks to which you can create a cozy and unusual house, for example. If you can’t find an amethyst geode, then we recommend using the mod presented above.
