Ore Crystals

What's that faint glow in the distance...? Is it a way out of this cave? Is it something more sinister?

No. It's strange, crystallized metal growing from this ore... Huh. Maybe those temporal storms we've been having have something to do with it?

Deep down in the depths of the world there are many temporal mysteries. A semi-sentient creature enthroned upon a structure of crystal is one such mysteries. It seems to burst with energy, enriching the local cluster of crystals with new life, causing them to rapidly grow an an unnatural rate. They even seem to have taken over the machinery of the depths, the locusts, infesting them with crystal and somehow influenced them to be their guardians.

It may be dangerous, but perhaps...these 'hearts', and these crystals... will they be useful, in some way?


It is HIGHLY recommended to install this mod on a new world. Also, I'd like to recommend installing my other mod, Item Lights, alongside this mod since Ore Crystals items extensively use that system. It's optional, though.


Enjoying my mods? Please do consider supporting me on Patreon, it'd be a great help!

This mod seems to have visual bugs for crystals transparency when used together with Volumetric Shading Continued (

Mod author suggests, that this glitch can be fixed from this side: I believe it may be due to the incorrect UVS of the crystals

Can you check?

Theisgood I would imagine so, yea. In theory. Crystals are formed after ore generation. The biggest questionmark would be how well things perform with more crystals and things.

Ores'O'Plenty creates gold ore that's not hosted in quartz. It's likely some problems will arise with things like that.

Ores'o'Plenty and other ore generation mods should be fine to use with Ore Crystals now, as of version 1.3.6.

Can't wait for the update. I also have a question will this work with ores o plenty mod?

I am working on getting every ore cystal captured and show casing the screen shots for you.

It should still work with 1.15.5 without a hitch. 1.15.5 was rather minor and doesn't seem to affect things related to the mod. I just haven't tested it thoroughly myself with Ore Crystals.

Please update for 1.15.5!

@Theisgood I'd love that! If you do take some screens, feel free to post them on the forum or send me a message in Discord ^.^

If I find some ores and take some 1080p screenshots do you mind if I send them to you to use for the mods screenshots? I will only send high quality pictures. Just to show off the various crystals you created in your mod. 

Let me know mods like this make me smile and make my experience so much better.

@Theisgood You can but crystals will only appear in newly generated chunks

Theisgood, Feb 19th 2021 at 10:25 PM

So I can not install unless I generate a new world? I just assuming that. Darn I should have downloaded before I got so far into the game lol
