X MARKS THE SPOT - Unfortunately, you'll have to search all over the Nether for this new material.

You'll need to dig fairly deep to find the new bock added in Minecraft 1.16. The new block you'll be looking for is "Ancient Debris".

One interesting feature of this new material is the ability to float in Lava.

Creating Netherite

To begin crafting your Netherite, you'll need to put the Ancient Debris in a furnace.

This will turn your Ancient Debris into Netherite Scraps.

You'll then need to combine four Netherite Scraps with four Gold Ingots to create the Netherite Ingot.
