Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • 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 could be a reference to two different processes: how rocks expand when heated, and causing fissures which could make the stone bricks crack; or simply melting the cobblestone so it reforms into igneous stone.
