after years of rumbling in the minecraft universe, i finally decided to get my ass in gear and learn how to mod. my first inspiration was the discontinued bluepower and the gems introduced with it, so i decided to start there.
and here it is: a small, vanilla-like mod based on 4 kinds of gems. this right here is still the "very basic" edition, i am looking forward to go further into the topic and eventually update to newer minecraft versions. constructive criticism and suggestions requested - enjoy!
4 new gems: Amethyst, Malachite, Ruby and Sapphire
Gem Ores, spawning below y=32
Fancy Gem Blocks
Gem Tools & Armor: Iron stats, but much more durability
Emerald Tools & Armor: Diamond stats, but less durable
