If you are looking to add more colors of blocks, and armor to Minecraft, Gems + Mod adds gems everywhere in Minecraft. Gems plus Mod Can are used with Minecraft versions 1.10.2,1.9.4, 1.8.9, 1.8, and 1.7.10. This allows all Minecraft players to use the mod.
Since Emeralds are already in Minecraft, gems mod 1.10.2/1.8/1.7.10 allows you to craft emeralds into armor and tools. Along with adding crafting recipe for emeralds, you can also craft armor and tools from the gems that the mod adds to the game. These new armor and tool sets add many different color options to the game.
Crafting armor and tools with the Gem + Mod for Minecraft is similar to what is in the basic game, but the durability’s and specs are different from other tools and armors in the game. This makes the armor and tools, not just an aesthetic choice. Each one of the gems has its own spawn level, rarity, efficiency damage, and max uses assigned to it.
Gems from the Gems plus 1.10.2 can be turned into gem blocks, or can be used to craft new colors of colored glass. Crafting gem blocks is the same as diamond and emeralds blocks from the basic game. Gems will need to be smelted to get gem ingots, which can be turned into all the different items.
Gems can also be used to craft unique colored sand and glass. Getting gem colored sand and glass in Gems plus Mod is simple. You will need to have the gem and smelt it in a furnace to get gem dust. Gem dust, when combined with two sand blocks, will result with two gem color sand. You can use the gem colored sand as building blocks, or you can smelt the glass in a furnace to get a gem-colored glass blocks.
