Tin is the second ore you will likely encounter near the start of a new world, with the other being Copper Ore. Tin Ore is almost as abundant as Copper, only slightly less, but spawns up to the same height of 90 (default). 


The primary use of Tin Ore is to be smelted into a Tin Ingot using the Furnace, as shown below. Tin Ingots can then be used for a large number of things, such as Tin Tools, Tin Armor, etc.

Tin Ore spawns in the Overworld, where it can spawn at heights up to 90, with 30 blocks spawning in each chunk, in a vein of up to 7 blocks. The Tin Ore spawn rate, spawn height and vein size can all be changed using the Config.


When broken with a Stone pickaxe or better, Tin Ore will drop itself. Tin Ore is not effected by Silk Touch or Fortune enchantments, the same way Iron Ore is not.
