|“||Bricks have the same blast resistance as other types of stone, so they're pretty good for making your house creeper-proof. There are stairs and slabs made of brick, but the block's other crafting use is in making banners - adding bricks and dye to a banner will create a checkerboard background colour, which the game calls "Masoned". It's a great choice for a flag for a tribe of builders.||„|

Bricks are a decorative building block.
Bricks can be mined using any pickaxe. If mined without a pickaxe, it drops nothing.
|Breaking time[note 1]|
- Times are for unenchanted tools in seconds.
Bricks naturally generate in underwater ruins.
Bricks have the same blast resistance as other stone-based blocks, so it can be used as a durable building block.
