Packed Ice is a solid block found in the rare Ice Plains Spikes biome. Packed Ice blocks look similar to regular ice blocks, but are not transparent, can't melt, allow mob spawning, and are darker in the center of the block than the sides. Packed Ice retains the sliding effect found when walking on Ice. They can be obtained using any tool with the silk touch enchantment. When broken without using a silk touch tool, unlike Ice, no water source block is created.

Packed Ice is a completely solid block, and allows placement of any objects on top. It is currently only used as decoration to form spikes of Ice, as its generated biome name suggests. It can be useful for those who use normal ice but are wary of light sources melting it, although Packed Ice is non-renewable and only found in its rare biome.

As the ice does not melt from light levels and is registered as a full block, it has a niche for use in efficient mob grinders. The mobs can spawn on this block, slide around faster, and will fall into gaps easier.
