Zanite Ore is a mineral block found in the Aether, and drops a Zanite Gemstone when mined.


Zanite 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 (Holystone or higher), it will instead drop a Zanite Gemstone.
