Materials Needed To Make Lodestone
- 8 Chiseled stone bricks
- 1 Netherite ingot
Steps To Make Minecraft Lodestone
1. Open Your Crafting Menu
To craft lodestone, you first need to open your crafting table in Minecraft. You should see the same grid as the image below.
2. Add The Lodestone Ingredients To The Menu
In the crafting table, add the 8 chiseled stone bricks and 1 netherite ingot to the grid.
You must add both items to the grid exactly as shown in the image below. In the 1st row place down 3 chiseled stone bricks. In the 2nd row place down 1 chiseled stone brick in the 1st box, 1 netherite ingot in the 2nd box, and 1 chiseled stone brick in the 3rd box. In the 3rd row place down the remaining 3 chiseled stone bricks. This is the Minecraft lodestone recipe.
After you've added the items to the crafting grid as described above, you'll notice a lodestone block in the box on the right.
3. Move The Lodestone To Your Inventory
Now, simply drag the lodestone down to your inventory so you can use it.
That's it! Minecraft lodestone is a block that you can place down that will alter where you compass points. Lodestone can be used in the Nether, End, and Overworld.
