Continuum Ore is a rare mineral block found in the Aether, and drops a Continuum Orb when mined.


Continuum Ore requires a Silk Touch enchanted pickaxe or Gravitite Pickaxe to be obtained, in which when mined, it will drop itself. If mined without a Silk Touch pickaxe (Diamond, Gravitite or Valkyrie), it will instead drop one Continuum Orb.

Natural generation[]

When new chunks are generated in the Aether, some Holystone may become Continuum Ore, and it can be found in any height of islands. Continuum Ore is rarer than Gravitite Ore is because it can be found anywhere in the Aether Dimension, while Gravitite Ore can be found only in certain heights (bottom of the islands), thus having a much more predictable spawning area.


  • Continuum Ore doesn't have an Overworld counterpart, unlike all of the other ores.
  • Continuum Ore and its associated items were not present in the The Aether mod.
