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.

Occurrence[edit]

Natural generation[edit]

Bone blocks are generated naturally as part of fossil structures found in desert and swamp biomes.

Obtaining[edit]

Bone blocks can be mined using any pickaxe. If mined without a pickaxe, they will drop nothing.
