Realistic Gem Tools Mod

What is Realistic Gem Tools Mod

Realistic Gem Tools Mod for Minecraft 1.11.2, 1.11, 1.10.2, 1.9.4, 1.8.9, 1.7.10 –

Realistic Gem Tools Mod adds gem items whose stats are based upon Gemstone Hardness on the Mohs scale, and their specific gravity (weight) relative to diamond.

Hardness IRL equals durability (uses).

Weight IRL equals attack damage and inverse speed (heavier gems do more damage but are slower).

The decorative blocks of the gemstones that are pretty much clear in real life allow light to pass through.

The Enchantability of the Tools and swords are based upon cultural/historical significance, enchantments aren’t very realistic to begin with, so it was impossible to base it upon physical gemstone properties. Gems can be rarely found in vanilla chests roughly based upon their historical significance as well (IE, several gems found in pyramid chests, topaz in blacksmith chests, ect)

Up to this moment, here are all the things the mod adds:


sapphire is the second highest gemstone on Mohs scale after diamond, though it is slightly heavier.
Sapphire Ore (spawns in the overworld, underground obviously)

Sapphire Gem (mined or smelted from the ore)

Sapphire Block (blast resistant)

Sapphire Glass (unpolished and polished, the later being almost completely-clear glass that is as blast resistant as obsidian, this exists in real life look it up)

Sapphire Tools

Sapphire Sword


ruby is a variant of sapphire and is the second hardest gemstone on Mohs scale after diamond, though it is heavier.

ruby is rarer and more expensive than sapphire.

Ruby Ore (spawns in the overworld, rarer than sapphire and a little deeper)

Ruby Gem (mined or smelted from the ore)

Ruby Block (Blast Resistant)

Ruby Tools

Ruby Sword
