Moss Stone is a block that looks like Cobblestone but with moss growing on it and a different rock arrangement. Like Cobblestone and Netherrack, on the upper left, there is an 'L' that points to the north and east which can be used for navigation because these blocks always orient themselves in the same direction when placed. However, the markings on them may vary if you use a texture pack. Its primary use is for construction - often used in combination with normal Cobblestone for decoration purposes, such as to make buildings look older or to make Nether portals more eerie. Moss Stone is one of the most desirable materials in the game.

Moss Stone uses a pattern similar to that of Netherrack, but with different color schemes, Moss Stone being gray with green moss, and Netherrack being bright-red with black areas.

[edit] History

Classic
0.26 Added Moss Stone.
Indev
Unknown The player could get a full stack of moss stone (99 at that time) from the chests inside the Indev house. Early Indev versions also had the house made out of moss stone. When the chests were removed and the houses made of wood they became impossible to find until dungeons were added in late Infdev.
Infdev
Seecret Friday Update 2 Moss stone can be found in dungeon along with Cobblestone.
Beta
1.8 Moss Stone's texture changed from Moss Stone-Pre Beta 1.8.png to Moss Stone.png.
Official release
1.3.1 Moss Stone is now found in Jungle Temples along with Dungeons.
1.4.2 12w34a Moss Stone can now be used to craft Mossy Cobblestone Walls.
1.7.2 "Boulders" of moss stone appear in the Mega Taiga biome.
Upcoming
1.8 14w04a Added crafting recipe for Moss Stone.
Pocket Edition Alpha
0.4.0 Moss stone added for creative mode.
0.9.0 build 1 Moss stone now spawns naturally in dungeons and as part of moss stone boulders.
Craftable.
Console Edition
TU1 Added moss stone.
Pi Edition
0.1.1 Added moss stone.

It is interesting to note that while in Beta 1.7, Cobblestone patterning changed, Moss Stone's texture remained until Beta 1.8. Also, in Beta 1.7, not only did the contrast change, the top and bottom halves of the texture were swapped. This did not happen to the Moss Stone texture; only the contrast was changed before adding moss.
