World Gen and Simple Tools

Quartz And Quartz Tools

Applied Energistics adds Certus Quartz Ore to the world when it generates, which drops both Certus Quartz Crystal and Certus Quartz Dust. These are commonly used in the recipes in Applied Energistics and very few items do not require at least a small amount of one or the other.


Certus Quartz Crystal can be used to craft some simple tools early on; these tools are as effective as iron tools and provide a alternative if you are running low on Iron Ingots but have extra Certus Quartz Crystal or Nether Quartz on hand, all these recipes can be made with any type of quartz, and do not require Certus Quartz Crystal specifically.

Quartz Glass

Quartz glass is a mostly derivative block that provides a clean connected textures appearence, it comes in two flavors, Quartz Glass and Vibrant Quartz Glass.

Quartz Grind Stone

Applied Energistics introduced a very low tech solution for getting more out of your mining trips.

The Quartz Grind Stone and Wooden Crank

This new grinder allows you to hand grind your Ores or Certus Quartz Crystal into dusts for smelting. You get 2 dust per metal ore or 1 Certus Quartz Dust per Certus Quartz Crystal, or get Nether Quartz Dust from grinding Nether Quartz. There are also other items you can grind too, like wheat to make Flour or Glowstone Blocks to get Glowstone Dust.

It also can grind other mods ores the same way by taking advantage of the Forge Ore Dictionary.
