Name

stone

Stone is a block found in abundance in the Overworld. It uses the same texture on all six sides of the block. When Stone is mined, it produces cobblestone.

Stone is an often-used building material in the construction of buildings, paths and many other things.

[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 can be successfully mined with any type of pickaxe and will drop cobblestone, which is used in many crafting recipes. Stone can also be successfully mined with a pickaxe enchanted with Silk Touch and will then drop one stone block. 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.
