There is a new type of stone available in the Minecraft Caves and Cliffs update, so we will see how to get blocks related to deep slate and deep slate. This new type of stone is a bit harder to get your hands on than normal stone and is a bit more durable. It can also be used as a substitute for normal stone in many recipes, so knowing where to find it could be quite nice.
How to get Deepslate
The best guide that can be given for this block is that you must dig and you must dig deep. This is because Deepslate only generates in the lowest regions of the world, whether or not you use the next-gen data pack. In the official version, it can only be found below Y level 16, and in worlds using the intended generation, it will only appear below Y level 0. In current versions, it also only appears in smaller drops, so it's not the easiest thing. to get in mass quantity. When mined, it will drop a cobblestone variant, or just a normal deep slate if you're using a silk touch enchantment. Ores also have a chance to spawn as Deep Slate variants, they contain no more ore than normal ores and merely serve as an aesthetic difference, and silk touch is still required to obtain these blocks.
Crafting with Block
Deepslate has the advantage of working much the same as normal stone, with a few exceptions. This means that your normal method of crafting items with stone will also work here. Smelting the cobblestone variant will get you the items you mined underground, and using a stonemason will give you access to all of the other block variants. This includes multiple types of stairs, walls, slabs, and more when building with this new, darker stone type.
