Tin ore is an ore that is generally only found in Tekkit. It should be mined with a stone pickaxe or better. It drops a Tin Ore block, which can be smelted into a Tin Ingot. A more efficient way of harvesting tin is to use a Macerator to turn the ore block into tin dust, which can then be crafted into two tin ingots. Tin cannot be used for the usual tools, like picks and swords, however it can be used to craft tin cans and electronic batteries. It can also be used for making buckets without having to waste your precious iron.
