If You Like Ore Then Here's Some More!: Amethyst

    I think amethyst ore should be added to the underside of islands in the end. It makes it tricky to get without failing into the void. A difficult mineral to mine in the post-end-game world should have some powerful uses. Some ideas are listed below.

    While nether quartz is the game's light detector, I believe ender amethyst should represent the night, space and gravity. As nether quartz and amethyst represent opposite themes, they could be used together in interesting ways. In real life, amethyst is prized for its "healing protective energy" and of course its beauty. It should represent these same themes as well. Below is a list of powerful features to illustrate the idea:

    • Protective Charm: In real life, amethyst is used as a protective Charm. In Minecraft it could be used to craft a charm that when held makes Phantoms neutral to you.

    • Motion Detector: They could be crafted with nether quartz, redstone and cobble to make a motion detector (like a long range observer for mobs.)

    • Pocket Dimension: Amethyst Blocks could be placed in a ring on the floor and an ender eye could be thrown above it to fly in and create a portal to a pocket dimension. The pocket dimension is simply an ender island (without amethyst ore) with a linked portal in the center made of bedrock. Aside from the occasional enderman there is nothing else here. It is just for building a secret base. It looks like the end minus the creepy music.

    • Regeneration Crystal: A regeneration crystal is made from a diamond block with amethyst above and below. Mobs in a 6 block radius are healed for 1 heart every second. Conversely this means undead take 1 heart of damage each second.

    • Redstone Router: Made with nether quartz, amethyst, redstone and smooth stone, the router is a component that allows two redstone lines to cross the same block without interference. Right clicking the component or powering the block it sits on will cycle between the redstone lines crossing over without interference, or the lines turning left, or the lines turning right.

    • Attractor: Crafted with an amethyst block, surrounded by alternating nether quartz and redstone dust, the attractor becomes a sort of electro magnet or gravity well. Items and mobs will be pulled towards a powered attractor within a 4 block radius. The force is less than gravity so it will not pull things off the ground unless more than one attractor is used in the same area. This can be used to create rail guns for launching mobs or TNT, for creating more fatal fall traps or creating floaty houses.

    • Teleporter Panel: When powered by redstone, any mob standing on top of this block will be teleported to the nearest Teleporter Panel that is also powered by redstone. It is crafted from an Ender Eye surrounded by Amethyst Blocks.

    Reddit users have suggested the item be used to increase the potency of potions and decrease the cost of enchantments or repair. There was also mention of a block called an Amethyst Obelisk that could split enchantments off a book or item, enchanting the Obelisk for later use and removing the enchantment from the other item.

    Of course you should be able to make blocks, slabs and stairs from it but I don't think this mineral should be used to craft tools or armour.

    I guess the idea is kinda cool but I think it would be cooler if their was a made up jam in the idea like nether crystals

    I agree that amethyst should be found in the end, because it's still quite empty!

    Amethyst in the End makes sense because it's a purple gem . In the End you have purple things.

    It's better when it's not too much ores in the game. It's still Minecraft without mods.

    I would like amethyst to be able to be used in an enchantment table in place of lapis lazuli to receive better enchantments.

    I think Amethyst could also be used in the place of where Lapus Lazuli  would go in an Enchantment Table. The Resulting item placed on the enchantment with the Amethyst would have something called "Indago Enchantment"
