GemsCraft adds some new Gems to your Minecraft. You can find:
With these, you can craft Gemstone Tools, Armor and also Storage Blocks.
The colored Gems can be only found naturally, up to 25 blocks above the Bedrock layer. Pyrite is generated up to 50 block above Bedrock, Black Diamonds will only spawn in the nether, 20 blocks above (the lower) Bedrock layer.
You can craft tools from all gems.
You can craft armor from all gems except pyrite.
What you need if you find ores:
Ore breaking rules
You can enchant Gold and Diamonds into Diamonds and Black Diamonds
Black Diamond blocks can be lit (don’t worry, they won’t burn)
Lit BD blocks are material enchanters. You can enchant 2 Gold ingots into 1 Diamond, but 6 hearts will be taken as tribute. This also works with 2 Diamonds, they can be enchanted into 1 Black Diamond, but 8 of your hearts will be taken by the enchanter.
Special BD abilities
Currently only BD swords have a special ability. They can light mobs on rightclick, but will take 10 damage. I’m planning to change the BD system a little bit later, but for now enjoy burning pigs and cows

There is no armor made of pyrite
With this shaped recipe you can craft diamond sticks:
