Natural generation[edit]

Blackstone generates naturally in the basalt deltas biome found in the Nether, anywhere underground, and below the surface of a lava sea.

Blackstone can be found as a part of bastion remnants.

Veins of blackstone attempt to replace netherrack 2 times per chunk in veins of size 1 to 33, from levels 5 to 28, in all Nether biomes except basalt deltas.

Bartering[edit]

Piglins may barter 8–16 blackstone when given a gold ingot.

Usage[edit]

Blackstone can be used as a substitute for cobblestone in the Nether as it can be used to craft stone tools, brewing stands, and furnaces. It can also be used to repair stone tools using an anvil ‌[Java Edition only]. It can also be used to craft polished blackstone.

Blackstone cannot be used to craft dispensers, droppers, pistons, or other blocks that use cobblestone in their recipes. This is intended per MC-177904.
