Once upon a time, perhaps millions of years ago, there were huge creatures in Minecraft. Bigger than a house, we can only speculate on their lives, diets, habits or why they disappeared. All that's left of them is their skeletons, strewn across the world, a mixture of coal ore and our Block of the Week - bone.

Bone blocks are decorative blocks that can face in different directions.
Bone blocks can be mined using any pickaxe. If mined without a pickaxe, they will drop nothing.

- Times are for unenchanted tools in seconds. For more information, see Haste § Instant mining.
Bone blocks are generated naturally as part of fossil structures found in desert and swamp biomes.
Bone blocks are decorative blocks, and can also be used as compact storage for bonemeal.
