Obsidian pillars, also known as obsidian spikes or obsidian towers, are generated structures in the End that are made of obsidian.

Generation[edit | edit source]

Obsidian pillars generate naturally in the End.

Structure[edit | edit source]

Obsidian pillars are composed of obsidian, with a single bedrock block and an ender crystal on top of each pillar. They have circular forms.

The pillars generate in the end with heights at y=76, 79, 82, 85, 88, 91, 94, 97, 100, and 103. 10 Pillars are arranged in a circle in a random order. Second- and third-shortest pillars have iron bars around their ender crystals.

In the Console Edition, the ender crystals on the two tallest obsidian pillars are surrounded by iron bars.
