The specific instructions are: Add 3D renders for more compounds than just salt. Note that many compounds look the same, so be sure to avoid duplicates.

Compounds are a type of item used in chemistry, which are created from combinations of various elements.


Compounds cannot be obtained in the creative inventory. They are only obtained by creating them in the compound creator. This is done by inserting a certain number of elements corresponding to the compound's chemical formula. Unlike most GUI blocks, the elements are not consumed.

Natural compounds[edit]

Natural compounds are compounds which can be obtained naturally in Minecraft.

Icon Compound Chemical formula Natural source Method Notes
Charcoal 74 Wood Smelting The chemical formula C7H4O is sometimes used to describe the approximate composition of charcoal.
Ink 4 Squid Killing Squid FeSO4 is the chemical formula of iron(II) sulfate or ferrous sulfate, normally found complexed with water as a salt with the formula FeSO4·xH2O, and has been used in the manufacture of iron gall ink and other inks for centuries. In contrast, squid ink (and other cephalopod inks) is composed mainly of melanin and mucus, with an assortment of other compounds in a variety of concentrations dependent on the species.
Sugar 6126 Sugar Canes Harvesting and crafting C6H12O6 is the chemical formula of glucose and fructose, as well as a number of other simple sugars (common table sugar is instead sucrose, a complex sugar made of glucose and fructose with the chemical formula C12H22O11).
Water 2 Water Picking up in a bucket or glass bottle One of the easiest to obtain.


Garbage is considered a "compound", but the only way to produce it is to activate the Lab Table when its inputs aren't a valid recipe. It has no uses.


Certain compounds are used as ingredients in crafting or lab table experiments. Natural compounds have uses outside of chemistry, detailed in their respective articles.
