The Spyglass made its debut in the first part of the Caves and Cliffs update, which was released simultaneously for all versions of Minecraft:

Edition Version
Java Edition 1.17+
Bedrock Edition 1.17.0+

How to Use a Spyglass πŸ•΅οΈ

Using a Spyglass is super simple:

  1. Hold the Spyglass in your hand
  2. Right-click to zoom in on the object or area you want to view
  3. A vignette box will appear around the zoomed-in view
  4. Move around to explore the surroundings from afar

Keep in mind that your character’s movement speed will be reduced while using the Spyglass, so be aware of your surroundings!

Crafting Materials 🧱

To craft a Spyglass, you’ll need the following materials:

  • 2 Copper Ingots
  • 1 Amethyst Shard

Obtaining Copper Ingots πŸͺ¨

Copper Ingots are crafted by smelting Raw Copper in a furnace. You can find Copper Ore underground, typically between Y levels 0 and 96. Mine the ore with a Stone Pickaxe or better, then smelt it in a furnace to obtain Copper Ingots.

Finding Amethyst Shards πŸ’Ž

Amethyst Shards are obtained by breaking Amethyst Clusters found in Amethyst Geodes. These geodes generate underground, and you’ll need a Diamond Pickaxe or better to mine the clusters. Each cluster drops 4 Amethyst Shards when mined.

Crafting Steps πŸ› οΈ

  1. Open your crafting table to access the 3×3 crafting grid.
  2. Place 1 Amethyst Shard in the center of the top row.
  3. Place 1 Copper Ingot in the center of the middle and bottom rows.
  4. Drag the crafted Spyglass into your inventory.

And there you have itβ€”your very own Minecraft Spyglass! πŸŽ‰
