Cantazarite Ore cannot be mined by gold pickaxes to remain consistent with Minecraft - gold cannot mine above coal.

Natural Generation (Ore)
Cantazarite Ore spawns naturally throughout the world - by default it can be found around y-levels 0-30 

In order to pick up the ore without breaking it, it must be mined using a pickaxe with the silk touch enchantment. Without silk touch, mining a block of Cantazarite Ore with a stone-tier or higher pickaxe will yield Cantazarite - each block will drop up to a maximum of nine 'shard' shaped Cantazarite, usually yielding a minimum of 6. These values are increased with the Fortune enchantment. When mining Cantazarite ore, a small amount of XP orbs are released, similar to mining coal, lapis lazuli, Redstone, diamond, emerald, nether quartz, and nether gold.

Cantazarite can be smelted in a furnace into Cantazarite Dye, a component in Cantazarite Potions or for use as an orange-dye substitute.

Crafting ingredient
Cantazarite is a component in crafting the Cantazarite Anvil, Cantazarite Block, or in an alternative recipe for Blaze Rods.


Cantazarite heals damage (durability) in Amethyst tier armor, tools and weapons when combined together in a Cantazarite Anvil
