Iron Ore can be primarily obtained by the smelting of Iron Ore found while mining. However, they can also be found in Temple , Dungeon and Stronghold Chests . Rarely, Zombies will drop items made of Iron due to them wearing Iron Armour or holding an Iron Tool, or just the ingot itself.


  • Iron is one of the most useful Items in-game, as it creates tools that are capable of mining all Ores and anything but Obsidian . It also creates the middle-tier armor, with Diamond being the highest tier. This makes it perhaps one of the most-used materials in Minecraft.
  • Iron is the item with more crafting recipes.
