In Minecraft 1.19, the best pickaxe enchantments are:
Mending: Repairs the pickaxe using experience orbs, prolonging its durability. Mending is an enchantment that allows your pickaxe to repair itself using experience orbs collected by the player.

Efficiency: Increases mining speed, allowing you to mine blocks faster. Efficiency is an enchantment that increases the mining speed of the player. It comes in five levels (I to V), and can be applied to tools made of any material except stone or diamond. This enchantment is particularly useful for speeding up the mining process and gathering resources more quickly.
Unbreaking: Increases the durability of the pickaxe, making it last longer before breaking. Unbreaking is an enchantment that increases the durability of your pickaxe, effectively making it last longer before it breaks. With this enchantment, the durability of the item does not drop on each use, making it a valuable addition to any pickaxe.
Fortune: Increases the chances of getting multiple drops from mining ores and increases the odds of rare items dropping from other blocks. Fortune is a powerful enchantment that increases the number of items dropped by a block after it’s mined. There are three levels of the Fortune enchantment, with each successive level increasing the maximum number of extra drops and the chance that extra items are dropped. This enchantment is particularly useful for gathering more resources like iron ore, gold ore, diamonds, and even melons.
Silk Touch: Allows you to pick up exactly what blocks you mine rather than the typical items they drop. Silk Touch is a tool enchantment that causes certain blocks to drop themselves as items instead of their usual drops when mined. This can be useful for obtaining specific blocks in their original form, such as grass blocks, ice, or ores that would otherwise drop their resources.
It is recommended to enchant a Diamond or Netherite pickaxe for the best performance, as these materials provide the highest durability and strength. Netherite pickaxes are currently the strongest and best material, but Diamond pickaxes are also useful and can be used for a long time without fear of missing out on power.
To enchant your pickaxe, you can use an enchantment table or an anvil with enchanted books or various Minecraft commands. Combining the enchantments mentioned above will help you create the best pickaxe for your mining needs in Minecraft.
