More intensely coloured than stained terracotta, use concrete if you’re going for a bright blocks of uniform colour, that - handily enough - won’t burn to the ground like wool.

Ash Davis[1]

Concrete is a solid block which comes in the 16 regular dye colors.



Concrete requires a pickaxe to be mined. When mined without a pickaxe, it will drop nothing.

Hardening concrete powder[edit]

Concrete powder becoming solid concrete on contact with water. (Click for bigger image)

Concrete is formed when concrete powder comes into contact with a block of water (source block or flowing). It is not formed by contact with rain, cauldrons or water bottles.


The bright and solid colors of concrete make it useful for decoration. It has more pronounced colors than terracotta, and unlike wool, is not flammable.

As a building material, its hardness is slightly higher than stone, but its blast resistance is significantly lower.

1.12January 27, 2017Jens Bergensten tweets a teaser image of a new brightly-colored solid block, shown along with the new wool palette colors.
January 27, 2017He states that this is actually a new block, clearing popular rumors that the hardened clay texture was being changed.
February 2, 2017Jeb tweeted a video that showed concrete powder turning into a non-falling block when in water. This "wet" form of the block is concrete, though they were not confirmed to be the same at the time.
He later added that it will come in 16 different colors.[2]

Lava will now turn concrete powder into concrete when coming into contact with said block, instead of only converting concrete powder when it fell into the lava's source block.[3]
Prior to The Flattening, this block's numeral ID was 251.
