Minecraft Bedrock 188.8.131.52 Beta Patch Notes
Experimental features in Minecraft Beta
AMETHYSTS AND GEODES
- Amethyst Geodes have been added to the game!
- These huge geodes can be found anywhere underground in the Overworld
- Amethyst geodes have three layers: smooth basalt, calcite, and amethyst blocks.
- Geodes contain all forms of amethyst blocks.
- Tinted Glass is crafted by putting a Glass block in the middle of four Amethyst Shards
- Tuff block added to the game.
- The Spyglass item has been added to the game and can be crafted with Copper Ingots and an Amethyst Shard
- Camera movement when looking through a Spyglass is slowed to make it more comfortable to use. This is adjustable using the Spyglass Damping slider in Settings
SMELTABLE ORE DROPS
- Added Raw Copper, Raw Iron, and Raw Gold items
- Ores that are smeltable now drop raw item forms of the ore instead of the ore block, and these can be smelted just like before
- This is to open up the design space for more base stones with ores without cluttering the inventory and have consistency with Fortune on all ores
RAW ORE BLOCKS
- Added Block of Raw Iron, Copper, and Gold
- Just like other ore materials, you can craft a compact version with raw ore items in order to save inventory space

Bonemealing Small Dripleaves now creates Big Dripleaves of a random height between 1-5
- If a stalactite is hanging from a Dripstone block with a water source above, it will slowly grow both the stalactite from above and a stalagmite from below
- Growth speed is random but very slow; a single growth step can take several Minecraft days
- A stalactite will only trigger growth if it is max 7 in length, and if the stalagmite or floor is max 10 blocks below
