This Minecraft tutorial explains how to craft a spyglass with screenshots and step-by-step instructions.

In Minecraft, a spyglass is a new tool that was introduced in the Caves & Cliffs Update: Part I. A spyglass can be used to see far into the distance.

Let’s explore how to make a spyglass.

Where to find a Spyglass in Creative Mode

Minecraft Java Edition (PC/Mac)

Here is where you can find a spyglass in the Creative Inventory menu:

Platform Version(s) Creative Menu Location
Java Edition (PC/Mac) 1.17 – 1.19
Java Edition (PC/Mac) 1.19.3 – 1.20
  • Platform is the platform that applies.
  • Version(s) is the Minecraft version numbers where the item can be found in the menu location listed (we have tested and confirmed this version number).
  • Creative Menu Location is the location of the item in the Creative Inventory menu.

Required Materials to make a Spyglass

In Minecraft, these are the materials you can use to craft a spyglass:

2 Copper Ingots
1 Amethyst Shard

How to craft a Spyglass in Survival Mode

1. Open the Crafting Menu

First, open your crafting table so that you have the 3×3 crafting grid that looks like this:

2. Add Items to make a Spyglass

In the crafting menu, you should see a crafting area that is made up of a 3×3 crafting grid. To make a spyglass, place 1 amethyst shard and 2 copper ingots in the 3×3 crafting grid.

When making a spyglass, it is important that the amethyst shard and copper ingots are placed in the exact pattern as the image below. In the first row, there should be 1 amethyst shard in the second box. In the second row, there should be 1 copper ingot in the second box. In the third row, there should be 1 copper ingot in the second box. This is the Minecraft crafting recipe for a spyglass.

Now that you have filled the crafting area with the correct pattern, the spyglass will appear in the box to the right.

3. Move the Spyglass to Inventory

Once you have crafted a spyglass, you need to move the new item to your inventory.

Congratulations, you have made a spyglass in Minecraft!
