Minecraft Updates New Caves & Cliffs Resources in Latest Snapshot

If you’ve been playing Minecraft within the Java Edition’s Snapshots that’ve showed off parts of the Caves & Cliffs update, you’ve no doubt been introduced to Copper, a new resource that’ll be available for everyone once the big update is released. Copper’s been tweaked here and there throughout the past couple of Snapshot releases, and in the latest release made available this week, both it and the Amethyst Clusters also included in Caves & Cliffs were updated again.

The latest Snapshot was released this week for all Java Edition players to try out if they want to do so. It provided Copper with some “new functionality” and adjusted the rate at which Amethyst Shards are dropped from mining Amethyst Clusters depending on how players are mining the resource.

You can see the full notes for the new features and changes in the 21W11A Snapshot below.
