Whenever I mine redstone ore, it always lights up. When I stop mining it, it stops lighting up. Is this supposed to happen or a bug with my game? If so, why does it do this?

Yes, it is very normal for redstone to light up while mining. I think it's to represent the fact that redstone transfers energy well.

Ok thank you so much! I have been very confused about this and thought it was a bug/glitch :D –  Qwertyfizzle Nov 29 '11 at 4:02

It'll also light up when you step on it. –  Domocus Nov 29 '11 at 4:36
