This achievement may unlock after the requirements have been met or not at all.
To create and fully power a beacon you will need to complete two separate tasks. The first is to construct a beacon itself which requires a Nether Star. The Nether Star is dropped from the Wither after he is killed and is a 100% drop rate.
The second part requires collecting enough materials to build the pyramid. They can be built from Iron, Gold, Diamond, Emeralds or a combination of all 4. The pyramid is 4 levels tall and must be made of Blocks, ie Iron Block, Gold Block etc. Here is the full list of materials.
Layer 1 - 9x9 square of blocks. 729 Iron/Gold Ore or Emeralds/Diamonds
Layer 2 - 7x7 square of blocks. 441 Iron/Gold Ore or Emeralds/Diamonds
Layer 3 - 5x5 square of blocks. 225 Iron/Gold Ore or Emeralds/Diamonds
Layer 4 - 3x3 square of blocks. 81 Iron/Gold Ore or Emeralds/Diamonds
This leaves a 1 block space at the top of the pyramid for the Beacon itself. You must then sacrifice 1 Iron Bar, 1 Gold Bar, 1 Emerald or 1 Diamond to power the pyramid. You must also select your Pyramid Effect when you do this. Powering the pyramid via the Beacon block will unlock the achievement.
