Zanite Ore is a mineral block that drops Zanite Gemstones when mined.


The Zanite Ore block itself (rather than its Zanite Gemstone drops) can be obtained by mining it with a pickaxe with the Silk Touch enchantment.

Natural generation

When new chunks are generated in The Aether, some Holystone may become Zanite Ore. It is less abundant than Ambrosium Ore, but can be found at any height, whether in high mountains or in the undersides of islands. It is roughly as rare as iron in the Overworld.
