When we think of rare ores in Minecraft, we most likely think of diamonds. But actually, redstone is almost just as hard to find… Here are a few pictures of my mine ‘evolving’ and generally being improved as I continued the mad rush for diamonds!! They also show you just what it took me to find 2 blocks of red stone, but no diamonds. (A few broken pickaxes and over an hour, to be exact).
Oh, and with this also comes a useful tip – When mining for diamonds, remember that it usually takes ages just to find 1 block of it! So be prepared to give a lot of your time… as well as many pickaxes! AND NEVER DIG STRAIGHT DOWN!!
