Minecraft has plenty of minerals, and most of them generate in the form of ores around the world. They can be mined using pickaxes, but some ores like diamonds require an iron pickaxe or better. Otherwise, the ore breaks but cannot be collected by the player.

The rarity of ores in Minecraft can be determined by observing which ores generate the least in a Minecraft world. Below is a list of the rarest ores in the game as of version 1.17.
