What is Iron and how is it obtained?

Iron is one of the most important materials in all of Minecraft since with it, among other things, you can make pickaxes, swords, armor and much more. It is also one of the most present underground materials in the game, although you need the right equipment to be able to extract it. What's more, the iron that you find in its natural state, iron ore , is useless when creating objects. What you will need are iron ingots and of course we will also explain how to get them here.


How to get Iron

El Hierro is found in nature, especially in caverns and underground , in the form of Iron ores. To extract these, you have to chop them with the appropriate instrument, since doing it with your hands, for example, in addition to making it take much longer to break the block, makes it not give any material when destroying it. You need to mince a block of iron ore with a stone, gold or diamond pick to get the mineral in question, which you can then use in the foundry to create iron ingots.


Usually iron ores usually near the coal in underground levels . They are easy to identify and to exploit.

How to get Iron Ingots

To get Iron Ingots you can resort to foundry, which is the most common method. We will explain that later in this guide, but here we are going to explain other ways to get these ingots, and that is that you can make them on your normal work table if you have the right ingredients. Which? These:


  • 9x Iron Ingot - With an Iron Block on the workbench
  • 1x Iron Ingot - With 9 Iron Nuggets on the workbench

What to make with Iron

You can make many tools and objects with Iron . It is one of the most useful metals in the game, normally serving to make the most common tools in your game. Now, the important thing is not so much what you can do with the iron as such, but what you can do with the iron ingots . You have to get these before, and for this what you must do is either what we have explained above, or what we are going to explain below:

In the Smelting Furnace

In the event that you take an Iron Ore to the Smelting Furnace, what you will get is an Iron Ingot. It may seem insignificant, but it is extremely important. Iron in its natural state, as we have already explained above, is always in the form of ores, and these are useless on the work table. You have to extract the metal from them. How? Now you are going to see it:

  • Iron Ingot - 1x Iron Ore + Any Fuel

At the Work Table

Iron ores are useless on the workbench, however, if what you take to it are the iron ingots that you get through smelting , you can do a lot of things.
