The BloodGem's Texture.
|Found In||The Nether|
When mined, Bloodgem Ores drop a Bloodgem, saving you a trip to a furnace. As such they are automatically ready to be crafted into items. If mined with Silk Touch, it will drop the block, which can be smelted.
Bloodgem Ore is now affected by the Fortune Enchantment.
The ore itself is not used in any recipes, but all recipes using Bloodgems are listed on this page.
