Gold Nuggets are items that are used to craft Golden Carrots, Gold Ingots, and Glistering Melon. They are only naturally obtained from dead Zombie Pigmen. Gold Nuggets are gold, with a bit of a brownish shadow tint towards the edges. Nine gold nuggets make a Gold Ingot. To make a Golden Carrot (or a Golden Apple), surround a carrot (or apple) with eight Gold Nuggets. Gold Nuggets can not be found naturally before the Nether; crafting is required.
