Minecraft is a sandbox game that has a wide variety of items. Most of them are exclusively found in specific biomes and dimensions. Gamers can find or craft these items and blocks in many ways.

Here is a list of the ten of the rarest items that players can find or craft in Minecraft.

List of 10 rarest items in Minecraft

10) Name tag

Name tags are used to name a mob or an item in Minecraft. They cannot be crafted, and players can find them in chests located in mineshafts, dungeons, and woodland mansions.

9) Diamond ore

Diamond ores can be found in all Overworld biomes and can be mined using an iron pickaxe.

When mined using a pickaxe with Silk Touch enchantment, the player can get multiple diamonds from the same ore. The ore also drops as an item itself.

8) Ancient debris

Ancient debris are a rare ore found only in the Nether. They are found randomly between Y levels 8 and 119, and most of them generate at Y level 15.

Players can smelt them to get a netherite scrap. Four of these scraps can be combined with four gold ingots to craft a netherite ingot.

7) Chainmail armor

Chainmail armor cannot be crafted by the player. They can be obtained by trading with blacksmith villagers or from zombies or skeletons as mob drops.

6) Sponge

Sponges are blocks that can absorb water and turn into wet sponges. These cannot be crafted by the player and can only be found in some rooms in ocean monuments.

5) Totem of Undying

When a Minecraft player holds a Totem of Undying in either one of their hands, they cannot die. Sadly, a Totem of Undying can only be used once, and it will disappear once the player's life is saved. They cannot be crafted, and only Evokers can drop them upon death.

4) Shulker shell

Shulker shells are uncraftable items that are dropped when a shulker dies in the game.

Shulkers are mobs that are only found in end cities present in the outer lands of the End. Shulker shells can be used to craft shulker boxes that can store items.

3) Emerald ore

Emerald ore is rarer than diamond ore and can only be found in mountain biomes. Even when mined with a Silk Touch pickaxe, emerald is dropped instead of the ore.

2) Dragon head

Dragon head can only be found in end ships located in end cities. Players can wear it like a helmet. When powered using redstone, the head opens and closes its mouth.

1) Elytra
