The block of copper is a decorative block that oxidizes over time, gaining a viridian appearance. It can be crafted into a waxed version that does not oxidize. It can also be crafted back into four copper ingots unless it has started to oxidize, been waxed, or been crafted into the cut variant.

Obtaining[edit]

Drowned can drop copper ingots, making copper blocks, slabs, stairs and lightning rods renewable resources.

Breaking[edit]

Blocks of copper can be mined only with a stone pickaxe or better. If a block of copper is mined without the use of a pickaxe, it drops nothing.

Usage[edit]

Blocks of copper can be used to store copper ingots in a compact fashion. Weathered, waxed, or cut variants cannot be crafted back into copper ingots. The cut variant can be crafted into slabs or stairs.

They have four stages of weathering (including the initial unweathered state). Advancing to the next stage of weathering relies on random ticks,[more information needed] and as such doesn't work in spawn chunks and other permanently loaded chunks, unless there is a player nearby.
