Journey to the End and you’ll find a dimension of eternal, starless night - a gently fizzing purple void in which float sallow islands of… what exactly? ... I personally think of it as some porous, coral-like substance, naturally accruing from unseen spores that float in the haze of night.

Marsh Davies[1]

End stone is a block that appears in the End and, apart from generated structures, makes up all of the solid ground that exists in that dimension.


End stone can be obtained using any pickaxe. If mined without a pickaxe, it will drop nothing.

Natural generation[edit]

A large island comprised entirely of end stone.

End stone is only found in the End, where it makes up all the floating islands that generate in the dimension.

The 16 end stone blocks under the edge of the exit portal are replaced when the ender dragon is respawned, and again when it is killed. As dragons are also renewable, this does make end stone renewable.‌[Java and Bedrock editions only]


End stone has a blast resistance of 45, 1.5 times that of ordinary stone, this is the highest blast resistance of any block movable by pistons. It also cannot be picked up by endermen and cannot be destroyed by the ender dragon. In addition, it is the only block on which chorus flowers can be planted.
