Platinum Block.

Platinum is a slightly expensive block that is quite rare and is found very deep underground in Dig Deep, Creative, and Survival Maps. It can be bought in a block shop for around 2,400 gold pieces and can be sold for around 2,000 gold pieces.

Description Edit

It shows up on the mini-map as a gray/light gray block. The block is a shiny metallic gray, with darker outer edges. Typically found in large veins on Dig Deep maps.

The blocks description reads: "Platinum's name is derived from the Spanish term platina del Pinto, which is literally translated into 'little silver of the Pinto Rive.' It is a dense, malleable, ductile, precious, gray-white and extremely rare transition metal. Platinum is one of the rarest elements in the Earth's crust."

Uses Edit

Currently, this block has no real purpose in-game other than use in the creation of a Platinum Sword. A good majority of players tend to sell it when they mine several veins of the block. Most players prefer to use it simply for 'Aesthetic Value' in their builds. Outside of that, it is quite useless.

Required Tool(s) Edit

The required pickaxe for mining this block is a Steel Pickaxe, or higher.
