Bells are transparent animated block entities that produce a bell sound when used.
Bells require a pickaxe to be mined, as they have no crafting recipe.
|Breaking time[note 1]|
- Times are for unenchanted tools in seconds.
Bells can generate naturally in all village variants, usually near the center of the village in the meeting point.
When the side of a bell is used it will produce a sound and will also produce a "swaying" animation. Bells can also be anchored to the side of blocks, ceilings, and floors.
