Linked to the massive Caverns and Rocks expansion, which was first revealed at Minecraft Live 2020, Update 1.17 not only added tons of new blocks, items, and more. In addition, the developers have also updated the capabilities of some old blocks and items. For example, now blocks of iron ore allow the character to acquire the so-called “Raw Iron” in Minecraft.
And since these resources are new, not all players have studied them well enough. Therefore, we suggest for a better understanding to study the guide, which is presented below. The material contains detailed information on all the most important details and possibilities of raw iron. If you wish, you can even find information in the guide on how to get this resource in unlimited quantities through the console.
Raw Iron Minecraft: Block Review
Raw iron in the Minecraft game is items of ordinary rarity that drop out after the character mines blocks of iron ore. At the same time, the raw iron texture does not have the shape of a block – they have a completely different sprite. In addition, the color is radically different when compared with other materials or iron ingots. On the other hand, the color of raw iron matches what color blocks of iron ore are.
Where to find it?
Since raw iron is mined from blocks of iron ore, you should know where exactly blocks of iron ore can be found. As a rule, they can be found at the bottom of the “Ordinary World”. Specifically at a height ranging from 1 to 64 blocks. In addition, blocks of iron ore can also often be found directly underground or inside some kind of cave.
On the other hand, rarely, but still sometimes they are found right on the surface of the world. The average number of blocks of iron ore per chunk is 75 pieces. The percentage of accumulations of iron ore at a height of 2 to 61 blocks is 0.72%.
How to mine and with what tool?
Again – in this regard, the same rules apply as in the case of blocks of iron ore. Therefore, you can get raw iron with any pickaxe, starting with a regular stone pickaxe. On the other hand, raw iron is a new material that is affected by an enchantment called ” Luck ” when ore is mined .
The bottom line is that, when mining iron ore, raw iron sometimes falls out. But the amount can be increased thanks to enchantments. As a result, a pickaxe with the maximum Luck enchantment can literally knock out up to 4 units of raw iron.
How to process raw iron in Minecraft?
For this, a conventional oven is used. In this case, as a result, you can get an iron ingot with an experience of 0.7 units. Any material is suitable as fuel: ordinary coal, charcoal, sticks, boards, wooden blocks and a coal block. In any case, the processing method, if you are interested, is as follows:

How to get through the admin?
For those who do not want to spend a lot of time mining raw iron in Minecraft, we suggest using developer mode, since these items can be obtained in unlimited quantities with the help of a command. The only requirement for this is that cheats be allowed in the selected world. Otherwise, it will have to be recreated. However, in any case, the instructions for using the mode and command will look like this:
- First of all, you need to open the administrator mode – for this, on the English layout, press the “T” button.
- Next, an additional window will appear on the screen in the world, where there is a special line at the bottom – you need to write “/give @p minecraft:raw_iron” in it .
- After that, it remains only to confirm all these actions – for this, the “Enter” key is used.
Additionally, it is worth noting that at the end, after the command, which must be written without quotes, you can put a “Space” and indicate the required amount of raw iron to receive by the character. For example, if you want, you can write “/give @p minecraft:raw_iron 64” and then get a whole stack of these items.
On the other hand, if you can’t use the administrative game mode for unknown reasons, then you can use the object called “Command Block”. Its advantage is that the command is written inside it and is automatically activated as soon as the signal from the red stone reaches the block.
Secrets and tips
- With the help of an enchantment called “Silk Touch”, there is no way to get raw iron. Instead of these items, a block of iron ore will drop out next.
- The raw iron texture has changed three times throughout the 1.17 version of the game. In addition, initially it was impossible to create such blocks from raw iron. A little later, this recipe for crafting was added already.
Raw iron is an extremely useful resource. After all, thanks to this material, from now on, the character will be able to acquire a large amount of iron. Plus, there are new recipes for crafting, which in turn are part of other recipes. After all, some of these items can be used for decorative purposes. Well, although there are no mods right now, players will definitely make raw iron a more valuable material.
