Clay is a block that can be found below water.

Obtaining[edit]

It can be mined with any type of tool, but shovels are the optimal choice. Destroying clay blocks will yield 4 clay balls each. If broken with a tool enchanted with silk touch, it will drop itself instead.

Natural generation[edit]

Clay is commonly found at the bottoms of rivers and lakes in shallow, circular patches, disregarding adjacency to other types of blocks. It can also be found commonly in swamps.

History[edit]

Alpha
1.0.11 Added clay blocks.
Beta
1.6 In newly generated chunks, clay blocks only generated when the x and z coordinates were the same, severely limiting the amount of clay on the map.[1]
1.7 The bug in Beta 1.6 was fixed.
1.8 Clay is commonly found underwater mostly on the bottom of Rivers and is common in the submerged area of swamps and shallow "lakes" (1 and 2 meters deep) in large quantities. However, clay can be found on dry land in the middle of sand piles. Sometimes, underneath the sand.
Official release
1.6 13w17a Clay can be smelted into Hardened Clay.
1.7 13w36a Clay is no longer found on the ocean floor.

Trivia[edit]

  • In real life, clay can actually be reddish brown, not just gray, and can be often found under the surface and away from sand. This color is reflected in the appearance of hardened clay, bricks, and flower pots.
  • The clay texture is a recolor of the sand texture.
