Tin Ore is an ore found commonly throughout Middle-earth which can be smelted into tin ingots, useful for making bronze ingots It is also used for making mugs and tin blocks.


Tin Ore can be found up to layer 64 and is about half as common as iron. A pickaxe of at least stone or equivalent strength is required to mine this ore.


When you look at the picture to the left, you'll notice that it is quite difficult to tell the four grey-coloured ores apart. Tin has the same texture as silver, but the colour is less bright, more a light grey.
