Usage[edit]

A block of redstone can be used as a redstone power source and can be crafted back into redstone. It can also be used as storage when you have too much redstone dust in your inventory from mining.

Crafting ingredient[edit]

Redstone component[edit]

A block of redstone powers dust and repeaters, deactivates attached torches, and activate mechanisms (left) – but does not power adjacent opaque blocks (right).

To place a block of redstone, use the Place Block control.

Blocks of redstone are always active and cannot be turned off. A block of redstone:

Adjacent opaque blocks are not powered.

If a redstone torch is attached to a block of redstone, it deactivates after 1 redstone tick and does not reactivate (which is normal behavior for a redstone torch attached to a powered block).

A block of redstone can be moved by a piston. Water and lava flows around a block of redstone without affecting it.
