- According to Brandon Pearce, the reason for changing the name "Grimstone" to "Deepslate" was because the word "Grim" had too many connotations related to a negative feeling and therefore did not accurately describe the block as to what it actually was. The name "Deepslate" was eventually chosen because of the "journey" needed to gather it, as well as its location within the world.
- Similar to grass blocks, the orientation of the texture varies depending on the coordinates.
