So mining works as expected with iron, coal, etc. and for each ore mined, a little block pops up and once picked up, the ore appears in the inventory...
But I was mining with my iron pickaxe and found loads of red stone and some diamonds. When I mined them, I noticed that nothing happened. Like the block of ore dissentigrated into nothingness...nothing there for me to pick up and nothing appears in my inventory.
I'm pissed because it means that I basically just destroyed 5 diamonds and like 15 redstone before I noticed...what a waste!
It is very important to understand that an iron pickaxe must be crafted to yield anything above iron ore. You need to mine three iron ore, smelt and craft an iron pickaxe in order to obtain diamond and gold.
I just started the game yesterday and I ran across the same thing. Massive patch of red stone. So naturally I dug right in..... I should have just gone around it. Found more red stone then diamond though.... Speaking of: I know its off topic but hoe long after death before your items start dissapearing? I lost eight diamonds and wondering if its worth going back...
