For a list of iron-related objects in Minecraft, see Iron (Disambiguation).

Iron ingots are ingots obtained by smelting iron ore, or by finding them in underground dungeons, woodland mansion, minecart with chest, strongholds, villages, buried treasure chests, jungle temple, desert temple, and shipwrecks.


Obtaining[edit | edit source]

Iron ingots can be primarily obtained by smelting iron ore in a furnace or blast furnace. However, they can also be found in temples, dungeons, and stronghold chests. Rarely, zombies and husks will drop items made of iron, due to them wearing iron armor or holding an iron tool, or just the iron ingot itself. Iron golems drop 3 to 5 iron ingots when they die.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Iron is one of the most useful items in-game, as it creates tools that are capable of mining all ores and anything but obsidian (which can only be mined with a diamond pickaxe), ancient debris, and bedrock. It also creates the third strongest armor, with diamond armor being the second strongest, and netherite armor being the strongest. This makes it perhaps one of the most-used materials in Minecraft.
  • Iron is used in the most amount of crafting recipes which are about 29 total.
    • Iron is also incredibly versatile. It fills all 3 categories where it is efficient in building, attacking, and mining.
  • Because it's a rare drop by zombies and husks, iron ingots are considered a renewable resource.
  • Weaponsmith, armorer, and toolsmith villagers will buy iron ingots in exchange for emeralds.
  • Like emeralds, gold ingots, and diamonds, iron ingots can be used to select powers in a beacon.
  • As of 1.15, iron golems can be healed using iron ingots, healing a quarter of their health per ingot.
  • The iron ingot is a recolored gold ingot.
