stone

Stone is a block found in abundance in the Overworld. It is an often-used building material in the construction of buildings, paths and many other things. When stone is mined with the proper tools, it produces cobblestone.

[edit] Obtaining

[edit] Naturally generated

After air, stone is the second most common block found in a normal map, making up the majority of the solid blocks generated. When chunks generate, stone can be found under layers of grass and dirt in most biomes. It can also be seen exposed at the side of mountains in extreme hill biomes.

When the world is generating new chunks, some stone becomes ore, and almost every cavern and mineshaft will generate at stone level.

Stone mined with any type of pickaxe will drop cobblestone, which is used in many crafting recipes. The stone block proper can be acquired in two ways: mining it with a pickaxe enchanted with Silk Touch, or smelting cobblestone in a furnace. Stone takes slightly less time to mine than cobblestone, meaning cobblestone generators are a less efficient way to obtain cobblestone.

[edit] Lava and Water

Stone can also be made by lava flowing on top of water, where the water will be replaced.

[edit] Usage

Stone can be used as a building material as well as in several crafting recipes.

Stone mined with a pickaxe not enchanted with Silk Touch drops cobblestone.

The mob known as a silverfish will dig into stone, in addition to stone bricks and cobblestone. When it does this, it creates a Monster Egg.
