LimeShulkerMining1

I like to include some basics for my mining inventory. For one, you can make more torches from coal blocks and logs than just coal and sticks. For blocks I can place and clearly see I placed, I use chiseled stone bricks. Sand is a good gravity block for when you’re pillaring down from a high place.

Lastly, keeping an open inventory of ores means you can use your silk touch pickaxe to mine for ores and place them safely in your ender chest or shulker boxes for breaking up later with your fortune pickaxe.
