Do you ever feel like mining is boring, and maybe you feel that it is too hard to make potions? Well, no more of that! This mod adds 9 new gemstones to your world which can be used for all sorts of purposes, such as making decorational blocks, getting treasures and making rings that give special status effects permanently as long as they are in your inventory! Be careful when you mine the ores though, you'll need an iron pickaxe to do so.

With the powers of Garnet, Sunstone, Zircon, Malachite, Aquamarine, Moonstone, Tanzanite, Kunzite and Opal combined, you probably are not going to have trouble conquering dungeons. Wait, but how do you get the rings, you ask? Well, I'll tell you. First, you are going to need 4 gold ingots. Place them in a circle in the crafting table to make a golden ring. Then, take any gemstone and combine it again with the golden ring, and voila! You've got yourself a gemstone ring. And, you can even upgrade them too! If you combine a glow ink sac, an amethyst shard, and a piece of paper, you can make magic fabric. Surround any ring in the magic fabric, and it will upgrade it, increasing its effect power. (You can't upgrade aquamarine and moonstone rings)


Garnet - Regeneration

Sunstone - Fire Resistance

Zircon - Haste

Malachite - Jump Boost

Aquamarine - Water Breathing

Moonstone - Night Vision

Tanzanite - Strength

Kunzite - Speed

Opal - Resistance
