You may not realize it but good lighting makes your Minecraft experience so much better. From the first torches in the world to the over-the-top Redstone lamps, they all shed some light on the otherwise gloomy and dark world. So, if you're planning on doing some lighting, here are the top sources of light in Minecraft.

#5. Fire

The ubiquitous fire is actually one of the sources of light in Minecraft. All you have to do is to carry a Flint and Steel to access the instant fire. It's brighter than torches. However, you must be careful when using fire for light. It's highly contagious, meaning it may catch on surrounding elements and accidentally set them on fire.

On top of that, you will take damage from being lit on fire. So you should contain the fire inside a campfire.

Be careful not to light the whole forest on fire.

#4. Glowstone

Glowstone is also a classic source of light in Minecraft. This block emits a natural light that is brighter than torches. However, collecting Glowstone is no easy task. It can only be found in the Nether, often dangling high up on the roof. So when you're collecting Glowstone, be careful or you may fall into the lava pool below.

Glowstone is quite hard to reach.

#3. Lava

Believe it or not, lava is one of the brightest sources of light in Minecraft. What’s even better is that there's always a pool of lava, lighting up the whole space. But it doesn't make sense when the whole Nether is full of lava, yet it's still dark and gloomy. If you plan on venturing down there, watch out for the various hostile mobs.

You may find a pool of lava down underground.

#2. Conduit

The conduit is one of the many interesting items in Minecraft. It emits powerful radiation that helps players breathe underwater and see clearly. It's the best light source for underwater exploration. However, what makes this item will always emit the highest light level even when it's not activated.

You can refer to how to build a conduit in Minecraft, as well as how you can make the best use of this item in the game.

If you want to build an underwater base, use the Conduit.

#1. Beacon

By far, the brightest light source in Minecraft is the beacon. However, it's also the most challenging to obtain though you can actually make a beacon on your own. Once activated, the beacon will shoot a beam of light up the sky. Beacons also emit status effects that give players lots of advantages, such as jump boost or regeneration.
