Stackable 64

Borax is a mineral that can be found underground.


Borax can be found in ore veins. It can also be found in surface deposits.


Borax must first be powdered, either with a hammer or in a quern before use. Powdered borax is used in leatherworking to make diluted borax, necessary for creating soaked hides. Powdered borax is also needed to create iron anvils, when welding the top to the bottom piece.

Powdered borax is also used to create white dye.
