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

Dead corals[Java Edition only] [upcoming 1.13.1] are the dead variants of coral.

Obtaining[edit]

Corals generated in warm oceans.

Corals can be mined instantly, but can only be obtained when mined with a Silk Touch enchanted tool.

Corals can be grown by using bone meal on a block underwater,[Bedrock Edition only] but only in warm ocean biomes.[Java Edition only] [upcoming 1.13.1]

Dead coral is created when coral is placed out of water.[Java Edition only] [upcoming 1.13.1]

Natural generation[edit]

Corals naturally generate in coral reef structures found in warm ocean biomes.

Usage[edit]

Corals can be used as a building or decoration block, and can only be placed underwater.[until 1.13.1] In 1.13.1[upcoming], coral can be placed in air as well, but if this is the case it will quickly transform into dead coral.

In Bedrock Edition, they cannot be placed in one-block-high water.

Dead coral[edit]

In order for coral to stay alive, at least one of the blocks surrounding it must be water. If placed outside of water, it will transform into its respective dead coral after a few seconds.

History[edit]

Classic
May 21, 2009 Notch expresses interest in a suggestion regarding corals by user "solarblade".
Alpha
June 28, 2010 Notch 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."
Official release
October 5, 2012 Coral were jokingly teased in the fake snapshot 12marc40awesome, along with fish as mobs and "fish blocks".
