ExtraGems is a mod that aims to add more item variety into the world of Minecraft for players to enjoy. There are various different materials in vanilla Minecraft through which players can craft their items and weapons but, after a while, these materials start to feel stale because players have to use them over and over again and it becomes rather dull when you have to use the same thing multiple times without any alternative. Fortunately, the ExtraGems mod remedies this issue by adding new gems into the game and these gems act as materials through which players can craft various kinds of items that they can then utilize to their advantage.
The ExtraGems mod, as of right now, consists of six different gems including emerald, ruby, sapphire, amethyst, topaz, and crystal. Each individual gem can be used to make all the items that you can usually make from the different materials in Minecraft such as tools, weapons, armor and even multiple kinds of blocks. As for the stats of the items made from these materials, they’re mostly similar to diamond but their durability resembles that of iron, so they’re definitely quite useful. It goes without saying that acquiring these materials is a tad bit hard and this is certainly a good thing considering how potent the items made from them are.
The thing that makes the ExtraGems mod truly worthwhile, though, is the fact that each individual gem featured in the mod can be utilized to create an amulet and these amulets grant a variety of useful bonuses to players whenever they’re equipped in the off-hand. All said and done, ExtraGems is a top notch mod that’s perfect for players who’ve grown tired of the materials in vanilla Minecraft and want to add some additional flair to the game.
