Looks nice. You ought to embedd the screenshot into the posting so that the blocks can be seen.

They are very shiny. Does this have a reason?
The mineral textures could be better, they only use one color.

the blue ore looks like mithril
but all in all it looks like a nice addition to the game

im currently working on getting all the ores i want, assigning them a general color, then im going to try and adjust the textures to fit the minierals.
the light is for the fact that i dont want someone to miss them if they happen to pass them by, they are going to be VERY rare, just like they are in real life(fun fact: the global supply of cobaltominite could fit in a thimble)

and Chibi Ghost, the difference between my blue ore and mithril is: [1] the blue is brighter, and [2] it glows.

lonsdaleite is a very rare mineral similar to diamond but harder, only found where metorites are found

It would be wise for descriptions to start with capital letters.
