Name

cobblestone

Cobblestone is a common block, obtained from mining stone. Its texture resembles an uneven, roughly paved surface. Cobblestone is mainly used for crafting or as a common building block.

Obtaining[edit | edit source]

If cobblestone is mined with any pickaxe, it will drop itself; otherwise, it will drop nothing.

Stone[edit | edit source]

If stone is mined with a pickaxe that is not enchanted with silk touch, it will drop cobblestone.

Natural generation[edit | edit source]

Cobblestone occurs naturally in dungeons, strongholds, villages, and jungle temples.

Water and lava[edit | edit source]

See also: Tutorials/Cobblestone farming

When water and flowing lava come into contact, the flowing lava is replaced with cobblestone. However, if the lava flows on top of the water from above, stone will be created instead.

Usage[edit | edit source]

Cobblestones can be used as a basic building block, as it is highly blast resistant and fairly common.

Silverfish[edit | edit source]

Silverfish have the ability to enter and hide in cobblestone, creating a monster egg.
