Crying Obsidian[1] refers to a leaked, abandoned[2] project by Jeb[3] to implement a change-spawn obelisk.[4]

[edit] History

Its original purpose was to set a new respawn point, but was abandoned after the introduction of beds.[5] It would have been crafted with an Obsidian block and Lapis Lazuli.[6]

On February 9, 2012, Jeb was tweeted with a request for the return of Crying Obsidian (or more colored blocks). He responded "As soon as I've made preparations for more texture space," suggesting the return of Crying Obsidian might be possible.[7]

Beta
1.3 Added Crying Obsidian's Texture.
1.5 Replaced the texture slot with a grass-type texture. Its original purpose was to mark a new spawn point, but was removed after implementing beds[5]
February 9, 2012 Jeb tweeted that they may return crying obsidian.[7]

[edit] Trivia

  • The Crying Obsidian texture used to exist in the Pocket Edition terrain.png file on both platforms, but was removed in a more recent update.
  • It resembles an Obsidian block with a stretched version of the spots in Lapis Lazuli ore shown on top of it.
