Amethyst seeds

3 best seeds for amethyst geodes in Minecraft 1.18.2

Amethyst geodes were introduced to Minecraft in the 1.17 update and quickly became one of the best things to find while mining. They can’t be located with a command, so players who want to find one will simply have to venture underground and start looking.

They’re usually surrounded by a layer of calcite and a layer smooth basalt and are the only place that block can spawn. They spawn between Y level 64 and Y level 30, with each chunk having a one-in-24 chance.

Crafters can find an amethyst geode, which is the only source of amethyst items, through a good seed. Ever since Minecraft’s 1.18 update, all seeds work universally across both Bedrock and Java Edition.

Here are three seeds that have geodes nearby.

3) Seed: -78688046

This seed was shared to Reddit by u/SLAMjam439. This is a seed for more than just amethyst geodes, as it has a shipwreck with tons of iron.

The coordinates for the shipwreck, which is close to three amethyst geodes, are 939, 68, -2435. Going a step further, this seed also has buried treasure located at 840, 60, -2616.

This seed is one of the best overall because of everything it has in one moderately-sized area.

How To Use

For technical reasons, you need to know the seed of your world to use Amethyst Geode Finder, unless, of course, you want to find a seed for a new world. If you’re playing SSP, the app is able to fetch the seed from your savegame. Alternatively, you can use the /seed command ingame. In SMP, you can use the same command if you have sufficient rights. Otherwise, however, you’re dependent on the server owner, who started the world and has access to the savegame and config files.

Technical

This app uses some relatively new web technologies. As a result, some features may be disabled for older browsers. I recommend using the latest version of a major browser such as Chrome, Firefox, Edge or Safari.

Usage

Seed Selection

The first thing you should do is select a seed and version. You can either type it in manually, or you can load it from your savegame. The latter can be done by clicking on “Load from Save. “ and selecting your level.dat, or by drag&dropping the level.dat file into your browser window. Level.dat is a small file located in the folder of every Minecraft savegame. You can find the savegames in the saves folder of your Minecraft installation. On Windows you can use %appdata%.minecraftsaves to get to that folder.

Levels allow you to store and reuse seeds on this website, without having to load your savegame every time. When loading a seed from a level, the seed will automatically be stored as a level.

You should also know that a seed is always a number (up to around 20 digits). If you type in anything else (like letters), it will be converted to a number. The app does this the same way Minecraft does, so it’s safe to use letters (and other characters) as well.

Navigation

Once you entered your seed and version you can start using the map. To scroll, use your arrow keys while your mouse cursor points at the map, or move your mouse while holding down the left mouse button. You can use the slider below the map or your mousewheel for zooming. The lower inputs allow you to go to a specific point (e.g., your base) of the map and set a marker there. You can always remove and add the marker by double clicking on the map. The “Save Map” button allows you to save the currently shown map as png image file.

Touchscreen

When using a touch-enabled device, an extra option for enabling/disabling touchscreen control will appear below the map. With that option enabled, you can drag the map with your finger to navigate, you can pinch to zoom in and out, and you can tap and hold to set a marker on the map. By double tapping on the map, you can quickly enable/disable the functionality as well.

    Exposure: Full sun

    Timing

    Timing
    Radishes can be grown all season but they’re easiest when sown just after the last frost date and again at the end of summer and into the fall. Optimal soil temperature: 18-24°C (65-75°F). Seeds should sprout in 5-7 days.

    Starting

    Starting
    Sow seeds 5mm (¼”) deep, 25 seeds per 30cm (12″) in rows spaced 30-45cm (12-18″) apart, and thin to 6-12 plants per 30cm (12″).

    Days to Maturity:

    Days to Maturity: From direct sowing.

    Growing

    Growing
    Ideal pH: 6.0-6.8. Radishes are moderate to heavy feeders. Best in rich, loamy soil amended with composted manure. Add 1 cup of complete organic fertilizer for every 3m (10′) of row for background fertility. Lime beds the previous fall. The real secret to growing this little vegetable is speed. Sow a short row frequently, thin them quickly, keep them watered, eat them quickly, and sow some more.

    Harvest

    Harvest
    Harvest promptly when radishes are the size of large marbles. The leaves and developing seedpods are also tasty.

    Seed Info

    Seed Info
    In optimal conditions at least 80% of seeds will germinate. Usual seed life: 4 years. Per 100′ row: 1.2M seeds, per acre: 522M seeds.

    Diseases & Pests

    Diseases & Pests
    Root maggots and flea beetles can be a problem. Expect to lose 20-30% of your crop to maggots if you don’t use a floating row cover.

    Companion Planting

    Companion Planting
    Plant radishes near beans, beets, celeriac, chervil, cucumber, lettuce, mint, parsnip, peas, spinach, squash, and tomatoes. Avoid planting near Agastache or potatoes. It is said that planting 3 or 4 icicle radishes around the mound where you plant squash, and allowing them to grow and bloom, will prevent most pests of squash and cucumber.
