This Minecraft seed has a lot going for it. A great spawn that places you right in a village (with a blacksmith) a desert/sand temple close by, and an amazing extreme hill (or stone beach) not far away. And, under spawn you’ll find lapis lazuli, redstone, iron and coal. Here’s the seed and what you need to know to quickly find all of it.
The gallery of screenshots tells the story. Sure, the village is great (including the gold and other loot in the blacksmith’s chest) and no one is going to complain about ore under the spawn point. A desert/sand temple nearby sweetens the deal. To get to it from the village head southwest across the savanna to the desert. If coordinates help, the temple is at (X -148.38, Y 97.61).
The gem, however, is the amazing extreme hill slash stone beach. It emerges from the coast and shoots up past the cloud layer and has several waterfalls, lava flows and voids that have created caves. From the village you can get there by heading in a southeasterly direction. You’ll have arrived at the land side of it at when reaching around the coordinates X 114.60, Y 97.62. It is s hike from the village (not as close as the temple), but well worth the trip! If you don’t have the patience for a trek in survival, try it in creative.
