for Minecraft 1.5.2
GemsCraft adds new colorful Gems to Minecraft to enhance your mining experience. You can find:
- Black Diamond
Press this little button (at the end of my post) if you like my mod.
- Updated to MC 1.5.2 (built with Forge #696)
- Black Diamond tools now have the ability to smelt blocks! (More info below)
- Made a MC 1.4.7 back-port (Forge #534) containing these new features
- My Emerald ore is no longer generated by default (however my Emerald are still usable)
Iromzy made a spotlight! Start from 4:50 if you want to see something you might not have known yet!
A nice video with stuff from v1.6 (A bit outdated )
The colored Gems can be only found naturally, up to 25 blocks above the Bedrock layer.
Pyrite is generated up to 50 block above Bedrock, Black Diamonds will only spawn in the nether, 20 blocks above (the lower) Bedrock layer.
You can craft tools from all gems.
- Topaz: 550 uses
- Amethyst: 600 uses
- Sapphire: 650 uses
- Emerald: 700 uses
- Ruby: 750 uses
- Pyrite: 100 uses at Gold speed
- Black Diamond: 2125 uses at Ruby speed
What you need if you find ores:
Ore breaking rules
Using Black Diamond altars to transmute Gold, Diamonds and Black Diamond:
Black Diamond blocks can be lit (don't worry, they won't get destroyed)
Lit BD blocks are material enchanters. You can enchant 2 Gold ingots into 1 Diamond, but 6 hearts will be taken as tribute. This also works with 2 Diamonds, they can be enchanted into 1 Black Diamond, but you have to give 8 hearts to the altar.
Special BD abilities
Currently some tools have special abilities. Black Diamond swords can set mobs on fire when it is rightclicked on that mob. Black Diamond Pickaxes, Shovels and Axes can auto-smelt blocks with a rightclick on that block. Currently supported are Stone, Cobblestone, Iron Ore, Gold Ore, all 4 types of Log, Sand and Clay. Keep in mind you need the tool that fits best to use auto-smelt (like you cant smelt a piece of sand when using an Axe)
Everything you need:
The Mod: http://bit.ly/10X2gJt <- Universal version, works for client and server
Forge: http://files.minecraftforge.net/ <- works for client and server too

Give rubix3 a hug as he updated my old 1.4.7 textures to 1.5
The Mod itself is compiled using srg names, so it might be compatible with future versions of Minecraft.
I've made a special 1.4.7 version with all integration plugins enabled, which also features RedPower integration! You can use my gems for Sickles and Saws. Download
Don't stop reading! In case you want to switch between mine and Redpowers gems, craft an Exchanger! (4 obsidian in the corners, 1 ruby in the middle, 4 gold in the spare slots). It exchanges Rubies or Sapphires when rightclicked.
If you don't want RedPower's Rubies or Sapphires generated, make sure to also download this mod. It needs to be placed in your coremods folder as it overwrites Redpower stuff.
