Golden Gold and Real Diamonds

Helo :)

GGaRD is a simple texture pack changing the diamonds and the gold look. I once thought: Hey, why is the gold in Minecraft orange yellow?

Or diamonds blue? And that's how the pack was created.

Eng: I changed the textures of all items, blocks associated with gold and diamonds for more realistically colored. Cause why not? You can use this pack for idk what. It's my first thing shared on mcpedl, i shared it only to see how do you do it.

Maybe i update this pack when i will have an idea to add something that will fit into this pack.


Select version for changelog:


-Updated the description. (Made it longer) 

-added instalation desription.

-nothing, but i needed 10 words


1. Click a link in the "downloads" section.

2 If it's .mcpack go to file explorer right click on it, click "open with" and click minecraft. If it's .zip (idk i use only mcpacks xD) then change it to .mcpack and do what i writed


  • Golden Gold and Real
  • Golden Gold and Real Diamonds.mcpack

Supported Minecraft versions

This is a great pack! The only thing is that the diamond armor looks a bit too much like iron... Oh wait... if you have this in a pvp realm or world, people might think that its iron... so great for pranking!
This is really cool. Idk why I see people complaining about it
Para mi esta bien la textura yo siempre represento los diamantes de color medio blanco o medio transparentes
Here in a way there is an error, Blue diamonds do not exist, only they are not found in a mine as such, also they are worth much more money
Actually you're right why is diamond blue but in real life it's white or colorless... You get the point
From my original reply to this post

"Type IIb diamonds, which account for 0.1% of gem diamonds, are usually light blue due to scattered boron within the crystal matrix; these diamonds are also semiconductors, unlike other diamond types. However, a blue-grey color may also occur in Type Ia diamonds and be unrelated to boron."
Dang ppl be writing full-on essays, but it true doe
And by that, you are referring to my comment.
I think the concept is there, but it isn’t executed very well. Common diamonds tend to be white and semi-transparent, but this pack just seems to make it a grayish silver color, which isn’t accurate. Also, your gold texture looks more bronze. It doesn’t have the glimmer that actual gold has.
Decent but the diamonds look too similar to iron
Diamonds occur in a variety of colors. Gray, white, blue, yellow, orange, red, green, pink to purple, brown, and black. Colored diamonds contain interstitial impurities or structural defects that cause the coloration; pure diamonds are perfectly transparent and colorless. Diamonds are scientifically classed into two main types and several subtypes, according to the nature of impurities present and how these impurities affect light absorption:

Type I diamonds have nitrogen atoms as the main impurity, commonly at a concentration of 0.1%. If the nitrogen atoms are in pairs they do not affect the diamond's color; these are Type IaA. If the nitrogen atoms are in large even-numbered aggregates they impart a yellow to brown tint (Type IaB). About 98% of gem diamonds are type Ia, and most of these are a mixture of IaA and IaB material: these diamonds belong to the Cape series, named after the diamond-rich region formerly known as Cape Province in South Africa, whose deposits are largely Type Ia. If the nitrogen atoms are dispersed throughout the crystal in isolated sites (not paired or grouped), they give the stone an intense yellow or occasionally brown tint (Type Ib); the rare canary diamonds belong to this type, which represents only 10% of known natural diamonds. Synthetic diamond containing nitrogen is Type Ib. Type I diamonds absorb in both the infrared and ultraviolet region, from 320 nm (3.2×10−7 m). They also have a characteristic fluorescence and visible absorption spectrum.

Type II diamonds have no measurable nitrogen impurities. Type II diamonds absorb in a different region of the infrared, and transmit in the ultraviolet below 225 nm (2.25×10−7 m), unlike Type I diamonds. They also have differing fluorescence characteristics, but no discernible visible absorption spectrum. Type IIa diamond can be colored pink, red, or brown due to structural anomalies arising through plastic deformation during crystal growth—these diamonds are rare (1.8% of gem diamonds), but constitute a large percentage of Australian production. Type IIb diamonds, which account for 0.1% of gem diamonds, are usually light blue due to scattered boron within the crystal matrix; these diamonds are also semiconductors, unlike other diamond types. However, a blue-grey color may also occur in Type Ia diamonds and be unrelated to boron. Also not restricted to type are green diamonds, whose color is caused by GR1 color centers in the crystal lattice produced by exposure to varying quantities of radiation.

Pink and red are caused by plastic deformation of the crystal lattice from temperature and pressure. Black diamonds are caused by microscopic black or gray inclusions of other materials such as graphite or sulfides and/or microscopic fractures. Opaque or opalescent white diamonds are also caused by microscopic inclusions. Purple diamonds are caused by a combination of crystal lattice distortion and high hydrogen content.

I don't see how this resources pack changes the Minecraft diamonds to "real" diamonds.
You pasted it from wikipedia or writed yourself?
Yeah, of course. I needed to back up my point. And it isn't plagiarism if I don't claim it as my own.
