This chart may look scary, but we’ll explain it briefly.
Each colored shape represents a type of ore. The vertical length of an ore shows where in the world it can spawn (aka the level height). The horizontal width represents how much of that ore can spawn, depending on the height. So the widest part of an ore’s shape means the more frequently it will spawn!
