Blackstone is a dark colored block, which functions similarly to cobblestone. It can be found only in the Nether.

Occurrence[edit]

Natural generation[edit]

Blackstone generates naturally in the basalt deltas biome found in the Nether.

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 1-33, from levels 5 to 28, in all Nether biomes except basalt deltas.

Obtaining[edit]

Loot[edit]

From block loot[edit]

Blackstone requires a pickaxe to be mined, in which case it drops itself. When mined without a pickaxe, it drops nothing.
