Redstone

Redstone Ore
Clusters Small clusters of ore scattered evenly up to height 16. This is the vanilla redstone generation. Redstone Clusters.png
Veins Isolated veins (no motherlodes) starting at height 64-70 and running straight downward for about 35 blocks. Fairly common, but challenging to mine because the player must tunnel vertically.

3x more common in Deserts, Desert Hills, and Mountainous Desert*.

Diamonds

Diamond Ore
Clusters Small clusters of ore scattered evenly up to height 16. This is the vanilla diamond generation. Diamond Clusters.png

Diamonds veins occur equally in all biomes.

Lapis Lazuli

Lapis Lazuli Ore
Clusters Small clusters of ore scattered mostly around height 16. This is the vanilla lapis lazuli generation. Lapis Clusters.png
Veins Isolated veins (no motherlodes) starting near height 4 and running straight upward for about 35 blocks. Fairly rare, and challenging to mine because the player must tunnel vertically.

3x more common under Oceans and Frozen Oceans.

Clouds Rare, sparse clouds of ore surrounded by single-block "hint" veins extending over several chunks.

Emeralds

Emerald Ore
Clusters Single blocks scattered between heights 4 and 32.

Found only under Extreme Hills, Extreme Hills Edge, and Green Hills*. This is the vanilla emerald generation.

Emerald Clusters - Extreme Hills.png
Veins Short hollow tubes starting around height 10 and sloping gently upward. Emerald ore is scattered around the outside. The center of the tube is filled with a continuous vein of Silverfish eggs, and breaking one can easily start a chain reaction. This can be deadly for the player, but if they survive it often speeds up mining.

5x more common under Extreme Hills, Extreme Hills Edge, and Green Hills*.

Clouds Uncommon, sparse clouds of ore covering roughly one chunk.
