Nylium is a variant of Netherrack that generates in the Nether. It has two variants: warped nylium and crimson nylium.


Natural generation[edit]

Warped nylium generates in the warped forest biome, and crimson nylium generates in the crimson forest biome.

Block loot[edit]

Nylium can be mined only with a pickaxe. If mined without a pickaxe, it drops nothing. In Bedrock Edition, nylium drops netherrack unless mined with Silk Touch.[1]

Using bone meal on netherrack that is placed next to or adjacent to warped or crimson nylium transforms the netherrack into nylium of that type. No block can be above the netherrack during this process. This transformation can also be done by activating a dispenser with bone meal directly into that netherrack block.


Similar to grass blocks and mycelium, nylium decays (immediately on a random tick) into netherrack when an opaque block is placed above it. However, unlike grass blocks and mycelium, it does not decay underneath water and lava.[2]

Similar to grass, the player can apply bone meal to nylium. This nylium, along with nearby nylium, generate vegetation that occurs in their native biome (crimson nylium generates crimson forest vegetation and warped nylium generates warped forest vegetation).

In Java Edition, fungi must be placed on the same type of nylium to be grown into huge fungi using bone meal. In Bedrock Edition, fungi can grow on any type of nylium (or grass blocks, dirt and mycelium).
