Block of Iron
dec: 42 hex: 2A bin: 101010
Blocks of Iron (also known as Iron Blocks) are decorative mineral blocks made from iron ingots. Iron blocks have the same texture on all six sides.
Blocks of iron can only be mined using a stone pickaxe or better, taking about 2 seconds to destroy. If an iron block is mined without the use of a pickaxe, it drops nothing.
Blocks of iron can be used to store iron ingots in a compact fashion.
Blocks of iron can be used to "power" a beacon. The top layer must be at least 3×3 optional lower layers can be adding as 5×5, 7×7, and 9×9 from top to bottom. The layers do not have to be entirely iron blocks, as they may also contain blocks of gold, blocks of diamond, and blocks of emerald.
Spawning Iron Golems
Blocks of iron and pumpkins are used to make Iron Golems. The pumpkin must be placed last, and the golem spawns immediately after placing it.
