Minecraft Nether update was the biggest one before the Caves and Cliffs update hit the servers and it added many new things. Here we take a look at the Minecraft Ruined Portal and all their features.

The Nether Realm of Minecraft is one of the 3 dimensions that the players can visit and explore in the game. It is aptly called the hell of Minecraft due to its red theme, monsters and oceans of lava comprising the dimension. Some naturally generated structure are found both in Nether and Overworld, and one of the main ones are the Ruined Portals.

Ruined Portals are generated at random naturally when the world is created. They are a rare spawn and can spawn in every biome of the Overworld and the Nether dimension. They can even spawn underground or underwater.

Minecraft Ruined Portals are marked by the Netherack blocks that surround the portal and create a red area around them. A pool of lava may also be present on the bottom. There is also a rare chance for a giant ruined portal to spawn.

Some of the blocks of the portal vary according to the biome they spawn in.

The portal itself is comprised of Obsidian and Crying Obsidian. To make the portals working again, players need to remove any crying obsidian in the frame.

The frames of the portal are broken upon spawn and are surrounded by netherack and lava. Overworld ruined portals are surrounded by stone structures while the Nether variant has blackstone structures surrounding it.

Each Ruined portal is spawned with a Chest beside it, which can contain many golden and obsidian loot.
