Beacons are a sort of defensive tool when placed on top of a pyramid made up of a mixture of diamond, emerald, gold, and iron blocks. They buff the player within a certain area-of-effect and lasts for a short eight seconds.
Pyramids can be as low as one level high using a group of nine blocks with the beacon on top. They can also be as high as four levels, using up to 164 blocks. The higher the level, the more buffs that can be acquired.
Right-clicking the beacon brings up an interface that allows players to choose what type of buffs the pyramid generates. To activate a new power, an iron ingot, gold ingot, emerald, or diamond must be used in the activation slot.
