The mineral skeleton is a variant of skeleton found underground in caves, ravines and structures (abandoned mineshafts and strongholds). The mineral skeleton shares the same health and hieght of the ordinary skeleton but they shoot arrows of weakness and come in seven different forms. These forms are coal, iron, gold, redstone, lapis, diamonds and emerald and they have the texture of these ores all over their body as well as being partially covered in rags with their eyes glowing the color of the ore they represent. Upon death, these skeletons have a 50% chance of dropping 1-3 of the ores they represent. The chance of finding a specific ore is dependent on the rarity of that ore. An example a coal skeleton spawning 45%, an iron skeleton spawning 30%, a gold skeleton spawning 7%, a redstone skeleton spawning 7%, a lapis skeleton spawning 6% and a diamond skeleton spawning 5% of the time. In a mountain biome, the diamond skeleton would spawn 4% and the emerald skeleton would spawn 1% of the time.
