Stone Bricks is one of the materials that are used in strongholds. Stone Bricks have the same blast resistance as Brick or Cobblestone; a TNT block surrounded by either of these will only destroy one block in each direction. All variants of Stone Bricks have the same blast resistance. They can be mined with any pickaxe, but not by hand.


Cracked Stone Bricks is a stone bricks variant which is also found in strongholds. Its texture is stone bricks' texture modified to make it look cracked; however, this does not affect its blast resistance or mining time. It is obtainable by putting stone bricks into a furnace, and can be used to craft other blocks the same way as regular stone bricks.


Mossy Stone Bricks is another variant, which is yet also found in stongholds. Its texture is a stone bricks texture with green lines to add a mossy effect, much like moss stone.


Chiseled Stone Bricks is yet another variant of a Stone Bricks. Unlike the other variants, it is not found naturally in strongholds, rather it can be found in Jungle temples.

Obtaining[edit]

Naturally generated[edit]

Regular, cracked, and mossy Stone Bricks generate as part of strongholds, making up most of the walls, ceilings, and floors.

Three blocks of chiseled Stone Bricks generate as part of each Jungle Temple.

Usage[edit]

As Stone Bricks offer no real advantage over Cobblestone, their main use is decoration, and are commonly used as a building material for castles by many players, due to the medieval look not found in Stone and Cobblestone. They also have advantages over normal Bricks, as Cobblestone is much more common than Clay, and, when smelted, produces full blocks rather than individual Bricks: a stack of Stone Bricks requires only 8 coal to smelt, while a stack of Bricks requires 32.

History[edit]

Beta
1.7 The file "en_US.lang" contained a reference to this block as "tile.stonebricksmooth.name=Stone Bricks", giving the first confirmation of their name.
1.8 Added Stone Bricks - regular, cracked, and mossy - that occur naturally in Strongholds. The different bricks were all called Stone Bricks in-game.
Stone Bricks that the player crafts appeared to have a very small chance of having the object change to Cracked Stone Bricks or Mossy Stone Bricks when harvested. The same phenomenon also happened with harvested Stone Bricks Stairs. You could also mine another type of a "Normal" Stone Bricks (Neither Mossy nor Cracked) if you mine it from the Stone Bricks Stairs. Due to a bug in 1.8, Mossy Stone Bricks could be made by destroying Stone Bricks Stairs that were facing east (common north is where the sun rises). Due to a bug in 1.8, cracked Stone Bricks could be obtained by creating Stone Bricks stairs, then mining them while not touching stone or near water, as mining during that time will produce different results. There was no other known way to craft cracked Stone Bricks. Stone Bricks that are "crafted" by breaking a Stone Bricks Stairs that was placed when facing South (F=3) are not stackable with Stone Bricks that have been crafted from Stone or obtained by destroying a Stone Bricks Stair in East (F=2) direction. These Stone Bricks have a data value of 3 and turn into chiseled Stone Bricks when updating to Minecraft 1.2 or higher.

Trivia[edit]

  • Stone brick monster eggs always take longer to break with a pickaxe than regular stone bricks, but break by hand as quick as pistons for example.
  • In the code, cobblestone is named stonebrick. Stone bricks, however, are named stonebricksmooth.
  • The texture for stone bricks is also extremely similar to the game Metagun's stone bricks texture, made by Notch for Ludum Dare.
  • Strangely, when smelting Cobblestone blocks, the cracked form of stone, they turn into the smooth variant. Yet when smelting perfectly normal smooth Stone bricks they turn into a cracked variant. This may however be a reference to how rocks expand when heated, and this may have caused fissures making it crack.
