Lapis Lazuli

Lapis Lazuli, also called Lapis, Blue Dye or Dark Blue Dye, is a semi-rare mineral.


Lapis Lazuli is obtained by smelting or mining Lapis Lazuli Ore with a Stone Pickaxe or stronger.

Lapis Lazuli Ore will spawn at the lowest few levels of the map making collecting it difficult.


Lapis Lazuli can be used to dye Fireworks, Wolves' collars, Sheep, Wool, Glass and Hardened Clay. It can also be crafted into a Lapis Lazuli Block.

As of Update 1.8, Lapis Lazuli is now used for enchantments, along with the previously required experience levels.


  • Lapis Lazuli blocks are one of 3 mineral blocks that cannot make the Beacon Pyramid, the others being Redstone and Coal.
  • Lapis Lazuli is sometimes shortened to just Lapis.
