Coral blocks are solid blocks that come in five variants: tube, brain, bubble, fire, and horn.

Dead coral blocks are the dead variants of coral blocks.

Obtaining[edit]

Coral blocks can only be obtained with a pickaxe enchanted with Silk Touch, otherwise, they will drop the respective dead coral block. Dead coral blocks can be obtained with any type of pickaxe.

Natural generation[edit]

Coral blocks and dead coral blocks naturally generate in coral reef structures. These are found in warm oceans.

Trading[edit]

Coral blocks can be bought from wandering traders for 3 emeralds.

Usage[edit]

Schematic of valid block placements for coral blocks
with water around. Several ways are shown where the
arrangement would cause coral blocks to stay alive
or die.

Coral blocks and their dead variants can be used as building or decoration blocks.

Sea pickle farm blocks[edit]

Coral blocks grow sea pickles when bone meal is used on it.[more information needed][Java Edition only] Additionally, if sea pickles are planted on coral blocks, using bone meal on the sea pickles will increase the number of sea pickles, and create more sea pickles on nearby coral blocks. Specifically, they can spread to the original sea pickle's level or one level below, out to a horizontal taxicab distance of 2. These are the only ways for farming renewable sea pickles.

Dead coral blocks[edit]

In order for coral blocks to stay alive, at least one of the orthogonally-adjacent blocks must be water. If placed outside of water, it will transform into its respective dead coral block after a few seconds. They are a grayscale version of coral blocks.

Java Edition Classic
May 21, 2009Notch expresses interest in a suggestion regarding corals by user "solarblade".
Java Edition Alpha
June 28, 2010Notch mentioned on his blog: "I tried adding corals, but it’s really hard to draw a single block that looks like corals, since it’s really more about crazy amounts of variation and diversity. But I do know that the corals will have tiny fish particles around them."
Java Edition
October 5, 2012Coral were jokingly teased in the fake snapshot 12marc40awesome, along with fish mobs and "fish blocks".
November 18, 2017Coral blocks were shown in a clip at MINECON Earth. Horn coral, fire coral, tube coral, and dead coral were shown (only one variant at the time), and in the clip slab variants of coral were shown as well, although they not implemented.

Dead Coral Block.png Added dead coral blocks, which at the time were called dead coral and did not have any variants.
18w10aTube Coral Block.pngBrain Coral Block.pngBubble Coral Block.pngFire Coral Block.pngHorn Coral Block.png Changed texture of all coral blocks.
18w10bDead Tube Coral Block.pngDead Brain Coral Block.pngDead Bubble Coral Block.pngDead Fire Coral Block.pngDead Horn Coral Block.png Replaced the single dead coral block with five dead coral blocks[1] (once again, called dead coral at the time). Like coral blocks, they were blue, pink, purple, red, and yellow at the time, but were later changed to tube, brain, bubble, fire, and horn.
18w10dAdded coral reefs, allowing coral blocks to generate naturally.
18w14bRenamed what was previously called coral to coral blocks, and renamed coral plants to coral.
Renamed the blue, pink, purple, red, and yellow variants of all coral blocks and dead coral blocks to tube, brain, bubble, fire, and horn, respectively.
18w16aMining coral blocks will now require Silk Touch to drop them.
Coral blocks will now have a short delay before dying.
Coral blocks will no longer die as long as one side is touching water.
pre6Living coral blocks now have new sound events: block.coral_block.break, block.coral_block.fall, block.coral_block.hit, block.coral_block.place, and block.coral_block.step.
Bedrock Edition
1.4.0beta 1.2.14.2Tube Coral Block.pngBrain Coral Block.pngBubble Coral Block.pngFire Coral Block.pngHorn Coral Block BE.png Added coral blocks. At this time, coral blocks would only "die" if they touched air or void blocks, meaning that coral technically did not need water to stay alive.
