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.

[edit] Obtaining

Iron blocks do not appear naturally in normally generated maps anywhere.

Iron blocks can be mined with a stone, iron, or diamond pickaxe, taking about 2 seconds to destroy. If an iron block is mined without the use of a pickaxe, it drops nothing.

[edit] Usage

Blocks of iron can be used to store iron ingots in a compact fashion.

[edit] Beacons

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.

[edit] Spawning Iron Golems






Iron Golem build configuration

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.
