How to make deepslate bricks? With the 1.17 update of Minecraft, we were given a wide range of new blocks. In this guide, we are going to go over the new deepslate block, along with its variations. The deepslate block set released with the first part of the Caves and Cliffs update in early June. The first part of the update only included mobs and block variations. The rest of the update is expected to launch later this year. It will include new biomes and mobs to interact with. For now, we can explore all the deepslate block variations added to the game.
How Many Deepslate Blocks Are There?
In total, there are 29 different types of deepslate blocks. Above, you can check out the deepslate blocks in creative mode. Later, we will go over each block, as well as how to craft different deepslate block variations.
Out of these 29 blocks, you will be able to mine and craft with 28 of them. Like other stone blocks in Minecraft, deepslate can become infested. This means that the block is hiding a silverfish. When the block is destroyed, a silverfish will pop out and attack you. Silverfish can easily be killed, but they can be quite annoying sometimes. Fortunately, they aren’t that common.
Where To Find Deepslate Blocks In Minecraft
Deepslate blocks generate underground, essentially replacing stone below Y-level 0 all the way down to bedrock at Y-level -64. If your world was previously a 1.17 world, the deepslate will replace the old bedrock, starting a little bit higher up at Y-level 5.
Deepslate can poke up a little bit above this level, but only by a few blocks. So as the name suggests, finding deepslate will always require going deep underground.
The good news is that once you’re at the required depth, you’ll have more deepslate than you could ever possibly need on your hands. Down in the negative Y-values, it’s as plentiful as stone is higher up, so you should have no difficulty getting enough of it.
Any block inside the deepslate group will convert into a deepslate block, including ore. Deepslate will mine just like normal stone. If you use a pickaxe enchanted with silk touch, then you will receive the original deepslate block. Alternatively, if you use an unenchanted tool, then you will receive cobbled deepslate.
Remember, if you use anything else besides a pickaxe to mine deepslate, then the block will break and you will receive nothing. You can use a normal wood pickaxe, so there is no reason to waste deepslate!
Ore Inside Deepslate Blocks
There are 8 ore variations in deepslate ore. The ore inside of deepslate blocks is the same as ore in normal stone. Although the block appearance is different, the material is exactly the same. Let’s take a quick look at the ore variations below.Emerald Ore
- Redstone Ore
- Gold Ore
- Copper Ore
- Diamond Ore
- Lapis Lazuli Ore
- Coal Ore
- Iron Ore
- If you have been playing Minecraft for a while, you may notice that the ore seems a bit different. Along with new blocks and textures in the 1.17 update, we also have a new way to mine iron and gold.
Instead of mining for whole blocks of iron and gold, you will now get raw ore. Along with copper, mining these blocks will drop individual ore that can be smelted into bars. It’s not too drastic of a change, but it might take some getting used to. Copper is a new addition to Minecraft as well, so remember to check out this complete guide on the material.
Crafting With Deepslate
- Cobbled Deepslate: mining without a silk touch pickaxe
- Deepslate: mining with silk touch pickaxe, or smelting cobbled deepslate
- Polished Deepslate: combine four cobbled deepslate
- Deepslate Bricks: combine four polished deepslate
- Cracked Deepslate Bricks: smelt deepslate bricks
- Deepslate Tiles: combine four deepslate bricks
- Cracked Deepslate Tiles: smelt deepslate tiles
- Chiseled Deepslate: combine two cobbled deepslate slabs
As you can see, deepslate blocks work similarly to stone and blackstone. Deepslate can be processed with a stonecutter as well. Each block can be crafted without a stonecutter though; all you need is a crafting table and a furnace.
Lastly, let’s go over other blocks that can be crafted with deepslate. Above, you can see the 12 possible variations that can be crafted with deepslate. Stairs, slabs, and walls can be made with the following blocks.
Where and How Can You Obtain Deepslate Blocks
Deepslate and Cobbled Deepslate is a dark variant of normal Stone and Cobblestone in Minecraft. You can think of them as the same block but with a different texture.
You can break deepslate with a non-Silk Touch pickaxe to obtain cobbled deepslate (or obtain deepslate directly if you have Silk Touch enchantment) and smelt cobble deepslate in the furnace to get deepslate. See the similarities?
Deepslate spawn everywhere in the overworld dimension! But only at the Y level equal to or less than 8. Under the 0 Y axis, normal stone blocks will be completely replaced with deepslate.
When you have a pickaxe and want to obtain deepslate immediately, just break the golden rule in Minecraft, and dig straight down! Or you can go around and find any caves or cliffs to slowly make your way down to the lower layers.
To check your current Y coordinate, press F3 to open the debug screen. Then look at the top left statistics and find the value of the word Y. You can see the image below for reference.
Where can I get cobbled Deepslate in Minecraft?
You can get cobbled deepslate in Minecraft by mining a deepslate block with a non-Silk Touch pickaxe or you can find cobbled deepslate spawn naturally in the ancient cities.
Can you TNT mine Deepslate?
Yes, you can use TNT to mine deepslate in Minecraft! Even though deepslate takes longer to break, it has the same blast resistance attribute as stone. So, using TNT is one of the best options to mine deepslate fast!
