Blue ice can be found in 9.9% of snowy village house chests in stacks of 1.
Wandering traders have 1⁄6 chance to sell blue ice for 6 emeralds.[Bedrock Edition only]
Blue ice is slippery, causing most entities to slide, including items. It is even more slippery than ice or packed ice. This also allows for increased speed of items in water currents by placing the blue ice under the water current. Mobs do not travel faster in water currents on blue ice.
Blue ice is a completely solid block, and allows placement of any objects on top.
Unlike normal ice, blue ice will not melt if placed near light sources.
In Bedrock and Education Edition, Blue ice can give off a light level of 4.
