After seeing the redstone ore from thinkgeek I thought why not print it myselft? So I made some nice models and here you go, your very own printable minecraft ore lamp.
I want to make to make my lamp blue, since its the color of the diamonds, but you can use any color you want. If you use red, it will be exactly like the redstone ore, since they use the same texture pattern. Or maybe try some green for some nice uranium!
If you enjoy my work, I would appreciate a small bitcoin donation to 1MSachsBbZJjBg83nEsTv95oLuQmnmZnGu.

Print out the parts. Some you need to print more than once, you see the number in the filename.
I included a led holder, but if you just want the cube you can skip that one, or if you want to use your own led positioning system :D
All the walls (front, back, top, bottom, sides..) you should print in one color. The parts with glass in the filename are the ones that should become transparent. I would recommend to use transparent filament for those.
The parts have a slight chamfer in the holes, to make the assembly easier. For orientation during assembly, the holes should become narrower towards the outside.
I would recommend to use hotglue to glue the parts together.
